About Screen Contest for 0.92 Started!

For each Inkscape version, we traditionally invite all Inkscape artists to submit a proposal for the About Screen in Inkscape. The Contest for 0.92 has just started and we're looking forward to your submissions!

So much work has been done since the release of 0.91 last year, and while much of it has been invisible backend work to make the Inkscape project function better, there are still lots of new features within the next release to showcase: There are, for example, fun new path effects to explore, an immensely useful new objects dialog and new extensions to try out and stunning improvements to the spray tool to discover.

As an Inkscape user, we invite you to create an About Screen image for Inkscape 0.92, where you show off what the new version can do, in your own artistic interpretation. After the submission period is closed, the Inkscape community will vote on the entries, and the developers will select a winner from the three top-voted submissions.

If you are a long-time Inkscaper, you will notice that this is the first time that we can hold this contest on our own website. So we would like to give special thanks to Martin Owens, who worked hard to set up all the infrastructure required for running the contest here!

If you would like to participate in the contest, please see full instructions here.

You can follow submissions by the community in this gallery.
