Draw your way to LA

October 10, 2011

Want a free trip to the Southern California Linux Expo — SCALE 10X — in Los Angeles in January, with accommodations, airfare and admission to the expo all paid?

In marking 10 years of the Southern California Linux Expo and 20 years of Linux, the SCALE team announced today it wants to incorporate an open-source approach to this year’s expo logo designs for publications, signage and swag.

The SCALE team is holding a contest, closing Nov. 4, to select the artwork for use on this year’s t-shirts, attendee bags, and other conference materials. The designer of the winning submission will win a free pass to SCALE 10X, including airfare within the continental United States, as well as a three-night stay at the Hilton Los Angeles Airport.

Here’s what you do:

— Grab Troy, the SCALE penguin. Files can be downloaded at the contest site – http://www.socallinuxexpo.org/blog/design-logo-scale-10x-win-trip-la

— Design a logo

— Send your submission by e-mail no later than 11:59 p.m. Pacific Time on Nov. 4 to contest@socallinuxexpo.org

But wait, there’s more. Make sure that

— Your design is in either a PDF, SVG or EPS format, 300 DPI or higher; and

— You include a caption/slogan to be used with the design.

Contest rules — and there are a lot of them (and the airfare covers only the United States) — and other information can be found on the contest page at http://www.socallinuxexpo.org/blog/design-logo-scale-10x-win-trip-la

SCALE 10X will be held from Jan. 20-22 at the Hilton Los Angeles Airport Hotel. For more information on SCALE 10X, visit http://www.socallinuxexpo.org
