[edit] Public engagement initiatives

(to be developed on separate pages if bid is successful)

  • Logo competition: Two sets, one open call, and one where the debian spiral needs to be included. Action required: Need a clear brief that is translatable to creatives.
  • Hack Challenge: Open call to hack anything. Targeted at beginners and school learners. Sponsored prize, possibly to align with a company corporate social responsibility (CSR) component.
  • Hack Challenge Pro: Sponsor companies give a specific, clearly articulated challenge which they are willing to assist with and advise. The company picks the winner, and sponsors the prize, and gets to use the solution in their company. (indiebio will make a mock-up for her industrial biotech company to illustrate the concept).
  • Media Strategy: Print (needed at least 3 months in advance) and online publications. Possibly also radio, TV, various channels.
