Southern California Linux Expo and Short Contest

-=About Inkscape & SCaLE=-

Following the tradition of the past few years, Inkscape will have a booth at The Southern California Linux Expo again. Just like last year we will be doing a "Birds of a Feather" session where people can get together and discuss inkscape, how they use it, what works, what doesn't, etc.

In addition to the above, I (ScislaC) will be teaching FOUR, one hour classes at the conference. Two "basic" classes and two "advanced" classes. This is the first year it's been done at SCaLE, so we're all rather excited about it. If you're a student, you can get reduced ticket prices to the conference, and I'd recommend it to anyone in the greater Los Angeles area (or elsewhere) who can manage to make it.

As with most conferences, one of the things that people love is conference swag. Stuff with logos and all kinds of goodies. In an effort to provide something cool and different, we wanted to tap into the community. We want to have the community create stickers!

-=The Contest=-

Whether you do circle pictures, or square, or whatever is up to you. The nice thing is that we're not so restricted on size... since this is all scalable. ;)

We would like to have a few different pictures printed up on stickers and give them to people in exchange for a donation to the project (which has become a common practice at these conferences). It's not really a formal contest due to our time constraints, but we'd greatly appreciate if people would be willing to help this effort.

The sooner we get people sending pics our way, the better. As the deadline is this upcoming Sunday (February 10). As usual, please, 100% inkscape only. We're sorry about the short notice, but, we really need to get them to a print shop in about a week. Thanks if you're able to contribute.

:bulletred:It must include the Inkscape logo at a minimum, and it wouldn't hurt to have some that say "Inkscape" or "Draw Freely" as well.
:bulletred:Submit as many as you want!
:bulletred:It must not contain anything inappropriate or otherwise offensive.
:bulletred:We will need for you to post your SVG file online as well (either here on DA or on your own blog, website, or FTP) at the time of submission. If your SVG files are not online by the deadline, we obviously can't use them.
