Eric Rizzo has won the December splash screen contest with this submission.
Congratulations! Thanks to all the contestants for submitting such creative artwork. The winning design will start appearing in tonight’s build (N20091214-2000) and has been tagged for the integration build.
Thanks for doing this Kim.
It would be great if we could continue to do this every month or every couple months. I like how we engage the community in contributing to Eclipse in special ways.
I was thinking of doing this once a milestone 🙂
The Eclipse foundation will be modifying the splash screen in the new year to advertise Eclipsecon, see https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=297355
Why don't we do a competition to replace the splash screen for Helios?
Ian: Hmm, I'm not sure if that is really feasible given that if the splash screen changes dramatically, all the associated purple icons in Eclipse itself might not match anymore. Today, these are designed by a professional graphic artist. That being said, I'd suggest opening a bug to get the discussion started.
Very nice. I love it.
