One of the fundamental ideals that Packt subscribes to is the belief that Open Source should be promoted, supported, and sustained whenever and however possible. With the Open Source Project Royalty Scheme successfully providing sustainable revenues for projects since 2004, Packt is now excited to announce a further open source initiative; the Open Source CMS Award.

The Packt Open Source Content Management System Award is designed to encourage, support, recognize and reward an Open Source Content Management System (CMS) that has been selected by a panel of judges and visitors to www.PacktPub.com.

The following final five received the most public nominations during the course of the six weeks and are listed in alphabetical order:

* Drupal

A panel of independent judges and votes taken from visitors to www.PacktPub.com will go towards deciding the eventual winner. Voting will commence on September 12 and will run until November.
