[tdf-announce] Create a Template for LibreOffice, and get a free T-shirt


The Document Foundation launches a competition to increase the number of
document templates bundled with the upcoming major release of
Libreoffice, open to designers, artists, and creatively talented users.

Deadline for submission, to be included in LibreOffice 4.4, is January
4, 2015. Templates submitted after this deadline will be considered for
later LibreOffice major and minor releases, like LibreOffice 4.5 or
LibreOffice 4.4.1.

Templates will be selected by the members of the LibreOffice Design
Team, and may be edited before the inclusion. Authors of the templates
bundled with LibreOffice 4.4 will get a free T-shirt either at
LibreOffice booth at FOSDEM on Saturday January 31, or Sunday February
1, 2015, or by post after FOSDEM, and will be credited with a mention on
http://www.libreoffice.org/about-us/credits/. They will also have a
chance to meet LibreOffice developers and the design team during and
after the show.

To be considered for inclusion, templates must meet the following
conditions:

- They are an original work, and are not converted from existing templates.
- They are licensed under Creative Commons CC0.
- They are based only on fonts bundled with LibreOffice (Caladea,
Carlito, DejaVu, Gentium, Liberation, Libertine G, Open Sans, PT Serif,
Source Code, Source Sans).
- They are based on LibreOffice styles, and not on direct element
formatting. Styles must be created according to the expected use of the
template.
- They contain only a minimum of text (ideally, no text at all), as they
will not be translated for LibreOffice 4.4. Because of that, language
must be en_us.

To participate, either upload the template on TDF wiki or send it by
email to templatecontest@libreoffice.org, and we will add it to the
list. The templates will be collected here:
https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Design/Whiteboards/Templates_for_LibreOffice_4.4.

Please specify the category and/or the intended use of the template, and
the license of the template. You can send any number of templates,
provided that all of them meet the above conditions.

For more information about creating templates, please check here:
https://help.libreoffice.org/Writer/Creating_a_Document_Template and
here:
http://lodahl.blogspot.ae/2014/12/making-good-and-solid-templates.html.

As an example, categories of templates could be: books of various types,
address/phone books, business cards, calendars, curriculum
vitae/resumes, essays, expense reports, letters, lists, records and
reports of various types, schedules, etc.

Be creative ! We look forward to bundle your template designs !
