about:mozilla is a weekly round-up of news and contribution opportunities. Here’s what’s happening this week.
We are excited to let everyone know that the Firefox Flicks video competition is now open for entries. So if you’re a creative filmmaker or animator who would like to educate users about the issues that affect our online lives why not create a short film and enter the competition? All entries will be judged by a panel of Hollywood Judges and entered to win cash prizes. The deadline for entries is May 1, 2012. For more information please visit firefoxflicks.org.
A Look at Gaia
David Boswell gives an update on Grow Mozilla, an initiative to help Mozillians achieve their crazy and ambitious goals by bringing in volunteers to their teams. Grow Mozilla brings together the tools, channels and expertise from our team and from other parts of the project into one place.
If you’d like to talk to us about how to find volunteers for your team, come to our regular real life discussion forums or join our online discussion forum.
