Linux Foundation Announces 2010 "We're Linux" Video Contest
"We're Linux" Returns for the Second Year in a Row, Aims to Surface Creative User-Generated Ads for the Popular Operating System

SAN FRANCISCO -- (Marketwire) -- 02/05/10 -- 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."

The winner will be determined by a combination of online community ranking and a panel of judges that includes:

 

--  Andrew Morton, lead Linux kernel maintainer;
--  Stephen O'Grady, co-founder, Red Monk;
--  Stormy Peters, executive director, GNOME Foundation;
--  Brandon Phillips, Linux kernel developer, Novell;
--  Bob Sutor, VP, Open Source and Linux, IBM Software Group; and
--  Steven Vaughan-Nichols, journalist, ComputerWorld.


Last year, the "We're Linux" contest called on participants to consider the popular "I'm a Mac; I'm a PC" commercials and create their own videos to promote Linux. The concept was based on the idea that while Apple and Microsoft have billions of dollars in advertising budgets, Linux had the power of crowds. The winning video, by Amitay Tweeto and titled "What Does it Mean to Be Free" (http://video.linuxfoundation.org/contest/winners), was an inspirational piece that communicated the ideals of the open source operating system.
