KDE-Look T-Shirt Contest

By theobroma
Published: Jan 18 2005

KDE-Look.org T-Shirt Contest Guidelines:

It's time to dig deep my fellow artistizens. To reach for the creative spot in our souls. For we are given an opportunity of a life time...

(dramatic pause)

Your mission if you choose to accept it, is to create the most kick a** incredibly cool artwork for the OFFICIAL KDE-LOOK T-SHIRT!!

Let's show our appreciation for all the great eyecandy we get at kde-look. The winning shirt will be on sale at Revelinux Gear with all the proceeds going to help out with the costs of running KDE-Look.

Please submitt two images - one for the front of the shirt and one for the back.
* The front image can no bigger then 8" x 10" (20 cm x 25 cm).
* The maximum size for the back image can be 8" x 10", 10" x 8" or 10" x 4" (20 cm x 25 cm, 25 cm x 20 cm or 25 cm x 10 cm).
* The minimum size is 200 pixels by 200 pixels.
* The images must be 200-300 DPI.
* The images must be in the .png format.
* Each image must not be larger then 4MB.
* Feel free to use lots of colors and gradients. Just make sure that the images are saved in RGB color mode.
* At least one of the images must have the words "KDE-Look.org" on it.
* The majority of the artwork must be original. The images must not violate any other artists copyright. If you use some artwork that you did not create then you must list the artist and the license or your entry will be disqualified.
* Entries must at least be GPL'd but the LGPL with the KDE artwork add-on or an another less restrictive license may be a better fit for some artists.

Where do I submit my artwork?
At KDE-Look.org in the Artwork Contest section. Please include the words "KDE-Look t-shirt" in the name field of your submission.

Tips from the printer:
"When creating images, start your image at 200-300 DPI. You can always decrease your image and maintain a clean, crisp image. However, you cannot increase the resolution and image size of your image without compromising the image quality."

"Print the picture yourself on your own printer at the same size you want it to appear on your products." (If it looks good printed on a color printer it should look good printed on a shirt.)

"On colored fabrics be aware that any white in your image will show as the color of the fabric. White ink is not possible in our current dye sublimation process."

What can I win?
The first place winner will receive the new KDE-Look t-shirt featuring their artwork AND a 7-in-1 External/Internal USB Memory Card Reader! The t-shirt that will be on sale at Revelinux Gear with all the proceeds going toward KDE-Look.org.

What happens next?
The contest will close on February 6th. A panel of judges will look at ALL the entries and pick their 'Top Ten'. The judges will pick the winner from that list. The final choice will be made by the judges, but the feedback of the KDE-Look community will be taken into account. So we encourage EVERYBODY to participate with your constructive comments and suggestions.

Who are the judges?
To be announced. If you are interested, please post the top three reasons why you would be a good judge below.

REMEMBER: If it looks good printed on a color printer it should look good printed on a shirt.

4 Mb. How are we supposed to upload that ?
I have a submission ready to go but it's >500 Kb. I think you guys should increase the upload limit for such contest.

Scale down the image and upload this version, but keep your old files. In cas you design wins, you can sent us the high-res image via email.

To mess up a Linux box, you need to work at it; to mess up your Windows box, you just need to work on it.

Could the contest guidelines be more precise on color usage? First there is: "Feel free to use lots of colors and gradients". And there is: "On colored fabrics be aware that any white in your image will show as the color of the fabric. White ink is not possible in our current dye sublimation process."

Does this last remark mean only #FFFFFF-white is not reproducable or is it (how I think it is) about a broader color range around white (e.g. #FxFyFz with x,y,z from 0 to F). This is important if one uses a gradient from a color to white (I've already seen many submissions with this).

If this is the case, the guidelines should mention the subspace of the RGB-colorspace that can be reproduced on the t-shirt.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
