The Linux Foundation is running a global treasure hunt and is inviting you to find Tux, the Linux mascot that represents freedom, collaboration and innovation.

The treasure hunt goes something like this: 10 #hiddentux plush animals are hidden around the world; if you find Tux and tweet a selfie with the penguin mascot, you will win some cool prizes.


#hiddentux Global Treasure Hunt – Main Details

The goal in the #hiddentux treasure hunt is to find Tux, Linux’s penguin mascot, mascot that represents freedom, collaboration and innovation.

Once you find the mascot, you must take a selfie with it and you must tweet it to @linuxfoundation with the hashtag #hiddentux. The selfie you take will be promoted on The Linux Foundation’s social channels and web properties. Consequently, it will be viewed by more than 1 million Linux developers, sysadmins and enthusiasts around the world.

What do you get for your effort? What do you get for finding Tux? Here's a quick look at the prizes:
  • You get to keep the Tux plush animal you found.
  • You get two free tickets to the LinuxCon and CloudOpen event nearest you.
  • You will be featured in a video that compiles all the pictures shared with the #hiddentux hashtag. The video will be released later this year or in early 2015.
10 #hiddentux plush animals are part of the treasure hunt. Mind you, the first mascot, which was hidden in Toronto, Canada, has already been found.

“The #hiddentux campaign aims to bring together the Linux community in celebration of the operating system that is helping to solving the world’s most complex problems, from One Laptop Per Child to CERN, the Human Genome Project, the Open Prosthetic Project, Local Motors and much, much more. We also hope it will help shine a light on Linux fans and supporters in different places all over the world,” explained Director of Communications & Community at The Linux Foundation, Jennifer Cloer.
