Linux, Linux Foundation, Linux.com, LinuxCon, T-shirt contest
From the Fork You t-shirt to blue Tux onsie to FSCK the Establishment mug, the Linux foundation has the goods to allow you to display your geek cred. Linux.com opened its storefront today, featuring geek garb and accessories “designed to invoke feelings of geek pride, freedom, fun, eccentricity, and originality.”
But, if you’re thinking that you could do better, the Linux Foundation recognizes the power of the open source community, and thus is launching the T-Shirt Design Contest. The Foundation will provide a forum in which community designs can be shared, rated and ultimately made available on store merchandise, giving anyone the opportunity to help with fundraising for Linux Foundation activities.
Design submissions are due by April 11, 2010. The top five designs will be available for community vote through June 6, 2010. The winning design will be included on T-shirts available for purchase in the store and the designer will be awarded with travel to Boston, Mass., to attend LinuxCon in August.
