Creative Commons, the U.S. Department of Education, and the Open Society Foundations are offering up to $25,000 in cash prizes to "the best short videos that explain the use and promise of free, high-quality open educational resources and describe the benefits and opportunities these materials create for teachers, students and schools".

Submissions are due June 5, 2012. For more information you can read the press release or visit their website.

Creative friends of open source: get busy!





Is the competition open to world-wide competitors or is it specific for US? Although in this context I would surprised if the competition was reserved to US, it could happen (e.g., for fiscal reasons), so it would be nice if this point was explicitly stated.
