Both ESAPI and OpenSAMM have small budgets available (

I think the ESAPI budget might be devoted to the ESAPI working session, but
perhaps we can get Pravir to agree to use the OpenSAMM budget to nominate
nominate OpenSAMM for "Best Regulatory Compliance Solution"?

As a side note, I'm not familiar with SC Magazine. Are these awards and this
publication appropriate for OWASP as an organization?
