Accepting nominations since mid-July, Packt Publishing announced this week the finalists for its 2008 Open Source CMS Awards. Final voting began on Sept. 1 and runs through Oct. 20.This is the third year for the awards, which are designed to "encourage, support, recognize, and reward" popularity and quality in open source content management systems. The finalists for each of the four main categories are as follows:

It speaks to the vibrance and dedication of the open source content management system community that there are so many good choices, and I look forward to learning more about some of the lesser-known projects. In addition to awards for the systems themselves, an Open Source CMS MVP Award will be given to an outstanding individual contributor.
