Hi All,

Back in December Melissa Draper heard about World Play Day [1], [2], [3],
[4], [5] and after she saw a couple people post photos of their kids in the
#ubuntu-women IRC channel - Melissa had a great idea!  Keep reading :-)

*What:* 1st Annual Ubuntu Women Project World Play Day Celebration!

*When:* May 28, 2010

*More Information:*  The idea would be to gather a repository of photos of
girls playing with (and loving, and encouraged to play with) Ubuntu -- A
gallery of *buntu Girls.

Popular vote prize - A Dell Mini 10n with Ubuntu Moblin Remix
Randomly drawn prize - A Canonical sponsored prize.

*Proposal*:  Take submissions for at least 2 months ( think we are running
short on this time line this year but we could hit this target if we can
announce something on Monday, March 21, 2010.  8 weeks would increase the
likelihood of candid shots rather than staged ones. That still gives us
heaps of time to plan.

*We still need to iron out some details such as:*

* * Model Waivers since the children would be minors.*
     -I've emailed Canonical to see if they have any generic model waivers
we can modify for our use, but if any body has one they have used, please
send it to the thread.

* * What ages are we looking at.*

Let's hear what you think - questions, comments, concerns etc.  Hope the
links below help answers any questions you might have.

Thanks everybody!  and Thanks to Melissa Draper for sharing this great idea
with the project!
