Open Video Contest by Creative Commons and Fedora Project

Creative Commons and the Fedora Project have announced the Open Video Contest that promotes flexible copyright, open media formats and the Fedora Project.

Participate in the Open Video Contest. Submit one short creative video, talking about freedom and openness. Your video should be in OGG Theora format, under 10 MB in size and under 30 seconds in duration and your work should be released under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 2.5 License. Theora is an open, royalty-free video codec developed as part of the Ogg multimedia framework released to the public under a BSD-style open source software license, completely free for commercial or noncommercial use.

Creative Commons licenses provide a flexible range of protections and freedoms for authors, artists, and educators based on a voluntary “some rights reserved” approach. The Fedora Project is a Red Hat-sponsored and community-supported open source project that works with the Linux community to build a complete, general purpose operating system exclusively from free software.

Get information on open video, including tips on creating OGG Theora files at Fedora Project OpenVideo site. Contest ends on July 20, 2006. And the winner gets a Fedora-branded Sony Hi8 Handycam Camcorder!
