This category is reserved for the type of web applications that simplify buying and selling of products on the Internet. This will include complete e-commerce applications or frameworks designed for e-commerce. E-commerce modules or extensions to other systems can also be nominated.

  • nopCommerce
  • OpenCart
  • PrestaShop
  • Tomatocart

Open Source Graphics Software

This category, as the name suggests, is for all Graphic Application Software that is used for graphic design, multimedia development, specialized image development, general image editing, or simply to access graphic files. It can also include graphics libraries, which use command line references or programming language inputs to design or edit graphics.

Finalists:

  • Blender
  • Gimp
