I'm happy to announce that Creative Commons, the Free Software Foundation, and OpenGameArt have teamed up to run a game authoring competition. We've built a style guide on which we're hoping artists can collaborate on CC-licensed artwork in phase one of the competition, and in phase two game developers will make free software games that make use of said artwork.
We're hoping people will get excited and involved. In the meanwhile we could use some help funding the prizes and to pay the pixel artists we've commissioned for working on the style guide.
