Konqui, the cute and friendly dragon has been the KDE mascot for the last 10 years. The dragon is shy and you won’t see him often on KDE systems. KDE forum admin Neverendingo is planning to give the shy dragon an image makeover. He is organizing a design contest with the Krita community.
Well-known artists Animtim, Deevad and Nuno Pinheiro forms the jury for the contest which will judge the submitted work. There are two prizes for this contest – a DVD+Comics pack and the original First Krita Sprint t-shirt.
There is no contest without rules, you have to adhere to the following guidelines:
- Needs to be done in Krita
- The artwork should be licensed under the LGPL V2+.
- It should honor KDE’s Code of Conduct, which means, for instance, that Konqui shouldn’t be beating a garden gnome with a big hammer.
The organizers are looking for a versatile portrait without background that is usable when preparing publicity for KDE and something that inspires people.
You can submit your entries to the Krita contests forum. The deadline for the contest is January 31, 2013.
