Software Freedom Day 2010 Best Event Competition result announcements:
Africa, Asia and Australia under the spotlights!

Hudson, New Hampshire (May 23, 2011) - Software Freedom International is
proud to announce the  SFD 2010 best event competition results. Software
Freedom Day (SFD) is a worldwide celebration of Free and Open Source
Software (FOSS) with the goal of educating the public about the
existence and the benefits of using FOSS in education, in government, at
home and in business.

The SFD Best Event Competition is an international recognition of the
efforts made by individual organizing teams in regards to spreading the
importance of Software Freedom and reaching out to the relevant groups
of people in their area. Each year three teams are chosen and the awards
given to those teams are meant to help them further in their tasks for
the years to come.

This year, two leading organizations from the Free and Open Source
Software movements have joined us to reward those exceptional achievers:
the Free Software Foundation, the non-profit organization behind the
Free Software movement, and Makerbot, a private company pushing the
concept of Free Software to physical media and making an fully open
source 3D printer.

Among the 40 submissions we have received the three teams that came out
as outstanding organizers and promoters of Software Freedom in 2010 are
spread over 3 different continents. We would like to name in no specific
order:
* SFD team Melbourne, Australia
* SFD team Yaoundé, Cameroon team
* SFD team SPCF-CITE, Angeles City, Philippines

As a side note we are very pleased to see winners from different areas
this year, especially Africa and would also like to mention some entries
which didn't make it in the top 3 but definitely deserve to be mentioned:
* CPU & Software Freedom Network team, Manila, Philippines
* 8layes team, manila, Philippines
* Limestone Coast LUG, Mount Gambier, Australia
* NOSK team, Lalitpur, Nepal

The above teams should be an inspiration to all SFD organizers and help
you to prepare for SFD 2011 which will happen on Saturday September 17th
this year.

About SFI - Software Freedom International is the non-profit
organization at the origin of Software Freedom Day. SFI handles
sponsorship contracts, official team registrations, sending out schwags
to teams, the annual Best SFD Event Competition and many other things.
