Cannes Lions award for OLPC Australia

OLPC Aus­tralia have been awar­ded a Bronze Lion at this year’s Cannes Lions Inter­na­tional Advert­ising Fest­ival, the advert­ising coun­ter­part of the Cannes Film Festival.

I think this is fant­astic recog­ni­tion for a Free Soft­ware pro­ject, espe­cially one that is focused on assist­ing chil­dren in some of the most remote parts of the world. I feel hon­oured to have been part of this success.

We’re happy for people to get involved to help us in our mis­sion. If you’d like to par­ti­cip­ate, espe­cially (for me) in the tech­nical field, please get in touch with me or con­tact OLPC Aus­tralia through our Web site.
