We're designing a cow the open source way—with our communities. Red Hat is proud to be a sponsor of the 2012 Cow Parade. A three-dimensional cow will be on display as public art in Raleigh, North Carolina. This year's event is raising money for the North Carolina Children's Hospital.

The Red Hat cow will be a truly collaborative work. We're asking our network of free and open source software (FOSS) users, partners, customers, associates, and friends from the Red Hat community to draw cows for us. Your contribution could be on display!  Check out the details on our Red Hat cow page to see how you can submit your drawing.

Check back often as we update the page with submissions from our communities. If you're local to the Raleigh area, visit the Cow Parade exhibits beginning in September. Find more information on the local parade at

Go download the cow form and submit your drawing before the July 25 deadline.

Hi Lenore. We're waiting on a few key dates before we give a final deadline. To be safe, I'd aim for having your submission in before the end of July. Thank you!
