openSUSE-LXDE Logo Contest

... is closed

LXDE stands for Lightweight X11 Desktop Environment. It is an extremely fast performing energy saving desktop environment.

The openSUSE project is a worldwide effort that promotes the use of Linux everywhere. openSUSE creates one of the world's best Linux distributions, working together in an open, transparent and friendly manner as part of the worldwide Free and Open Source Software community.

The openSUSE-LXDE team wants a logo, so they're putting out a call to the community to help create a logo that reflects the power of LXDE and openSUSE

Contest Details

The contest Ended October 1st 15:00 (UTC/GMT time). Entries should be submitted on the openSUSE wiki here. Discussion about the entries will be held on the openSUSE Artwork mailing list.

Entries can be submitted in any format that is supported by free software, i.e., JPEG, Scalable Vector Graphics, PNG, etc. Please do not submit proprietary formats like Adobe Illustrator (.ai) or other formats that are not supported by FOSS graphics applications. We prefer that FOSS applications are used to create entries, but it is not required.

If you don't submit your image as an SVG, in case you win, you might be required to create an SVG version of the same picture so that can be re-used in different sizes.

We are looking for ideas and concepts for the openSUSE-LXDE logo. We reserve the right to modify or recreate the concept in order to fit with other openSUSE artwork. (Meaning: We may not use your submission as the final product.)

The judging will begin on October 2nd, and the winner will be announced on "October 10th". Judges will include the openSUSE-LXDE team and other core openSUSE team members. We reserve the right to extend the contest if no suitable entries are received.
