Do you know of a person or organization who has made a great contribution to the Internet community? If so, have you considered nominating that person or organization for the 2013 Jonathan B. Postel Service Award? The nomination deadline of May 31 is fast approaching! From the description of the award:

Each year, the Internet Society awards the Jonathan B. Postel Service Award. This award is presented to an individual or an organization that has made outstanding contributions in service to the data communications community. The award includes a presentation crystal and a prize of US$20,000.

The award is focused on sustained and substantial technical contributions, service to the community, and leadership. The committee places particular emphasis on candidates who have supported and enabled others in addition to their own specific actions.

The award includes a $20,000 USD prize and will be presented at the 87th meeting of the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) in Berlin, Germany, in July. Anyone can nominate a person or organization for consideration.

To understand more about the award, you can view the list of past Postel Service Award recipients and also read more about Jon Postel and his many contributions to the Internet.

Full disclosure: I am employed the Internet Society but have nothing whatsoever to do with this award. I am posting this here on CircleID purely because I figure that people within the CircleID community of readers are highly likely to know of candidates who should be considered for the award.
