Five Years of Firefox in Pictures

11 Jan

Reposted from the Mozilla Blog.

Thanks to everyone for taking and creating such amazing images to celebrate Fire Years of Firefox.  In particular, we’d like to announce the winner of the Mozilla Creative Collective Five Year ChallengeRolegio Calamaya, Jr., also known as Lucero.  As you can imagine it was a tough decision with so many great choices (see John Slater’s slide show).  Rolegio’s illustration, Happy B-day Firefox, really captured everyone’s hearts and imagination.  As inspiration for his design, Rogelio imagined a busy Firefox who’s always running around, stepping away from his 5th birthday party for a second to rest and enjoy some cake.  Congrats Rogelio!

Happy B-day Firefox

In addition to the Creative Collective challenge, we also put out a call for community members to “Light the world with Firefox.”  The response was overwhelming – check out the results.  We wanted to call out some of our favorites and thank everyone for their creativity and time!

1.) Congrats to Carlo Frinolli and the nois3lab team for lighting the city of Rome with Firefox.  Carlo has also just put out a video chronicling their trip around Rome.

2.) Vineel Reddy and Paramveer Singh used light graffiti to create some great pictures!

3.) Irvin Chen projected Firefox onto the skyline over Love River in Kaohsiung, Taiwan for a great effect.

4.) Mitsuhiro Takano got a great shot of hundreds of Firefox flashlights eliminating the ceiling at the Tokyo Developer Day this past fall.

5.) Marcia Knous experimented with light painting using candlelight and a flashlight as light sources.

6.)  Tristan Nitot (and others) caught the incredible light installation at the Paris party in action.

7.) Bob Moss, our resident photographer, took some amazing photos of the San Francisco party, including our effort to light up San Francisco!

I also wanted to mention some other great photos that didn’t incorporate light but really captured the spirit of our community and the 5 year celebration.

Thanks again for all the wonderful creative work and adding to our repository of wonderful Firefox imagery.  Here’s to another five awesome years and beyond!
