Could You Use a Hundred Bucks?

Update: Entries for the September contest are no longer being accepted. The winner will be announced Tuesday October 3rd.

Submit your original Ubuntu related video to the Ubuntu Video YouTube group before September 30th, 2006 and you could win $100 USD. That's one hundred bucks directly out of my wallet and into your hands (or paypal account).

Ubuntu, and other free/open source projects, have saved me from thousands of dollars in software purchases so I can afford to pass a little of that savings on to you. But to get a shot at $100 you'll have to spend a little time teaching the world about Ubuntu.

What kind of videos am I looking for? You name it. As long as it's Ubuntu related it's in the running. Here's a few ideas to get you started:

1. Record your own Ubuntu commercial.
2. Show us how you use Ubuntu in a unique way or place.
3. Record an instructive screencast.
4. Make a mini documentary about free software.
5. Go to a major retailer and ask to by a PC with Ubuntu pre-installed. Take your camera.
6. Show us your linux gaming rig.

Only one entry will win. But even if yours doesn't it will still likely find it's way to Ubuntu Video. And you'll be showing thousands of people how you Ubuntu.
