Who can get them
The purpose of this programme is to support the promotion of OpenStreetMap. We want to provide materials for people running events, or to local communities. This programme is new, we have not fully worked it out yet, and do not have any hard and fast rules yet.
How to get them
If you are running a conference, or a large event, we can send you a package of a few hundred stickers (anywhere in the world) if you have been granted a SotM Quick Licence.
Please contact us, tell us about your event, how many stickers, links to the designs you'd prefer (if available), and address details. Decisions will be taken on a case by case basis. Please contact us as far in advance as possible (at least 6 weeks).
We're willing to put a few stickers (1→10) in an envelope and post them to anywhere in the world. Please contact us. You can indicate which designs you'd prefer, if available (please include links).
Email us firstname.lastname@example.org
In order to post you stickers, we need to know your name & address. Along with your email address, this personal data will be kept private & confidential and on the records of the Communications Working Group. They will not be used for any other purpose, and will not be transferred to, or shared with, anyone else.
Available Promotional Material
We have the following stickers (52x52mm square, glossy):
Attribution Fixer Stickers
(When a map uses OSM data, and they've "forgotten" to display OSM attribution, you can help them with these stickers)
