Linux Foundation Announces 2010 "We're Linux" Video Contest.

(Media-Newswire.com) - SAN FRANCISCO, February 5, 2010 – The Linux 
Foundation ( LF ), the nonprofit organization dedicated to accelerating 
the growth of Linux, today announced the 2010 “We’re Linux” video 
contest. The contest seeks to find the best user-generated videos that 
demonstrate what Linux means to those who use it and inspire others to 
try it.

The contest is calling all community members and amateur filmmakers to 
share with the public what a 30-60 second Linux-focused spot for the 
Super Bowl might look like. This theme is not a requirement for entry; 
however, videos that can demonstrate the benefits of Linux to the 
general public are likely to receive more community votes. The 
submissions should aim to inspire people to use Linux, create 
conversations among the public, and convey the power and ideals of Linux.

The contest officially begins today and will be open for submissions 
through midnight on April 4, 2010. The winner will be revealed at the 
Linux Foundation’s Collaboration Summit on April 14, 2010 in San 
Francisco and will be awarded with a laptop loaded with Linux and a trip 
to LinuxCon ( http://events.linuxfoundation.org/events/linuxcon ) in 
Boston, Mass.

“We have been inspired by the creativity and level of participation we 
have seen for the ‘We’re Linux’ video contest and want to provide a 
forum again this year for people to share,” said Amanda McPherson, vice 
president, marketing and developer programs, The Linux Foundation. “The 
contest attracts an extended community of folks to Linux and allows us 
all to weigh in on the best Linux videos.”

There have been various comments from the Linux community here:
