Last month, we reported that the Linux Foundation launched its annual t-shirt design contest by asking Tux fans around the world to submit ideas for new threads "inspired by freedom."

Nearly 100 entries flooded in, and a committee has just completed the difficult work of selecting five finalists. Now, the Linux Foundation is asking for even more community participation in the contest.

It wants your help selecting the winners.

Visit the contest page, read the official rules, and cast a vote (note that you'll need to create an account before submitting a ballot).

The design receiving the most support will win first prize: a $2,000 stipend to defray costs of attending either LinuxCon North America in San Diego, CA, or LinuxCon Europe in Barcelona, Spain. A second-place winner will earn $1,000 to be used for the same purpose.

Both winning designs will be screened onto t-shirts for the store, and proceeds from their sale will support the foundation's ongoing efforts to enhance, promote, and protect Linux "for generations to come."

The Linux Foundation says it will announce winners "on or around July 17," so don't delay casting a vote.
