New Contest

Here is the new contest put out by the openSUSE artwork team. Please read carfully and ready your best skills for it. Good luck!

Hello artists and enthusiasts. We have been hard at working with our artwork for 12.2 and now it is the time to style the distribution a little more. Since the most of artwork that we have now is a derivative of the official wallpaper created by Richard Brown and Marcus Moeller there is a big portion of our styling done for the distribution. However, there are a few other elements that need your creative collaboration. Splash screens for a few programs that we use can be greatly enhanced by your artistic inspiration.

Libre Office
GIMP
Scribus
Amarok
Calligra
Krita
Blender

The idea of this contest is that we can integrate the new chosen wallpaper into these splash screens for the release of 12.2.

Guidelines
1. Use the default wallpaper as part of the image.  http://dl.dropbox.com/u/32600284/test3.xcf.zip
2. Refer to the official artwork guidelines in how to use logos for these different applications.
3. Restrict your creation to the sizes specified.
4. Provide the sources of your work if chosen.
5. Present/submit your artwork to http://en.opensuse.org/openSUSE:Splashscreen
