We will check that the OpenStreetMap account belongs to you and has 42 mapping days in the last 365 days. See here for more information on the conditions. We require that your activities were not paid for the purpose of this active contributor membership.
To find out how many mapping days you have, you can use the How did you contribute tool for an estimate.
If you contribute to OpenStreetMap in ways other than mapping, but equivalent in effort to the mapping requirement, you can also qualify. Fill out the other form to explain your contributions.
