The dotJS Prize is made possible by our partner Zengularity. The most innovative frontend and backend open source JS projects will receive $5,000 each in cash.
The winning projects will also benefit from increased visibility through dotJS relays and from a public call to contributions in the dotConferences community. We will generally try to help out in any way we can!

The dotJS prize aims to reward and stimulate innovation in open source. Projects that can be nominated must:
There are no requirements on being able to attend dotJS or being a physical person, company or foundation.
While everyone can nominate a project, the top 10 submitted projects will be open to a vote by the dotJS attendees. This ensures votes are unique and representative of this community.
A vote should answer the question "Which project has the potential of helping me the most in the next 12 months?"
We want to focus on projects that will benefit the most from the $5,000 prize, and make sure small projects don't compete against large foundation-backed projects.
Our platinum partner Zengularity shares our values and showed great interest in giving back to the community. Zengularity supplies the prize money. Of course, neither Zengularity nor dotConferences will be involved in the voting process.
This is the first time we are awarding the dotJS prize and we are sure there are things to improve. Please send us all your feedback to [email protected]. Thanks!
