Kodi has won a total of three SourceForge Community Choice Awards: Best Project for Multimedia in 2006, and Best Project for Gamers in 2006 and 2008.

1 2006

At the inaugural SourceForge Community Choice Awards in 2006, Kodi (then XBMC) was nominated in two categories, Best Project for Multimedia and Best Project for Gamers...and won both awards! Our deepest thanks goes out to all the Kodi fans who showed their support by voting and helped grace the project with its first major accolades.

2 2007

The following year in 2007, the XBMC project appeared to have made the most of the favorable publicity that had accompanied its success at the 2006 SCCAs, for when the nominations were announced for the 2007 Awards, they were a finalist in no less than six categories!

  • Best User Support
  • Best Project for Gamers
  • Best Project for Multimedia
  • Best Technical Design
  • Most Collaborative Project
  • Best Overall Project

Unfortunately, competing in so many categories appeared to make it difficult to achieve a critical mass of support in any of them, and ultimately Kodi did not win any awards that year.
