The OpenOffice.org Design Challenge – Fame, $5000 in Prizes September 29, 2006

Posted by Carthik in news, ubuntu.

The openoffice.org documentation project has announced a Template & Clipart Contest.

The total prize money is to the tune of $5000. WorldLabel, which has been long a strong champion of OpenOffice.org, has set aside the amount for the competition’s winners.

The goal is to increase the trove of templates and clipart. The current collection of template samples leaves a huge gap that needs to be filled. Step up and fill that gap – for a prize ­čśë Winners will also have the option of including their winning entries in the OpenOffice.org installation sets available from the site.

If you are interested, visit the Documentation Project for more information. Everyone is eligible and everyone is encouraged to participate. The contest officially starts this week and ends 13
October 2006
, on our birthday. Winning entries will be judged by a panel of three and winners will be announced 1 November 2006.

For those of who want to get started here are a few guides to openoffice.org template design:
1. Instructions to create OO.org templates from openoffice.blogs.com
2. A .sxw openoffice.org document describing how to create and use templates.

Get started already, and good luck!
