This is a very special and prestigious award. The simple reason is that all J.O.S.C.A.R. nominees were proposed by the community, shortlisted by a committee consisting of members of the community and winners were elected by the community members attending the conference.
We are humbled and honoured by the great honour of peer recognition of our work, coming straight from the heart of the worldwide Joomla! community. We would like to thank each and every one of you. You are the reason of our existence and success. It is our conscious commitment to live up to this honour, by doing a lot more hard work to creating a world-class backup solution for Joomla! and providing the same constant high level of support and documentation to everybody who asks for it.
On behalf of the Akeeba Backup team,
Nicholas K. Dionysopoulos
Lead Developer and Project Leader
