h2. Preamble

Apache OpenOffice (AOO) is the re-named and re-homed, the second most popular
Productivity Software package on the market.  Our users number in the tens of millions
worldwide.  AOO is one of the most important pieces of Open Source Software available
today being of a type of application that is universally used in computers world wide by people
of all ethnicities and localities and by organisations from Home users and small business
through to large enterprise and government. The AOO source code is the basis for a number
of other Productivity Software products.

The Open Office community is over ten years old,  it spans all time zones, a myriad
of cultures and languages and levels of technical sophistication.  This creates a
vibrancy and atmosphere within the community that is unique to the OOo universe as is evidenced
by the same vibrancy in the LibreOffice community.

The OpenOffice User community shares many of these attributes but is far larger than the volunteer

h2. Aim

The aim of the contest is to provide the Apache OpenOffice Project Management Committee with
a range of options for rebranding the product for the 4.0 release.

h2. Scope

The scope of the competition is the full range of branding from the logo to titles and use
on a range of publications. Participants in the competition can use existing branding as a
starting point or start entirely afresh. 

h2. Eligibility

Anyone is free to participate. If there is sufficient interest from schools we will have a
junior competition for those 16 years old and younger alongside the mainstream competition

h2. Prizes

The best entries will get publicity through the global Apache OpenOffice community and designers
will be invited to join the AOO design team. This is an opportunity to show off your design
skills in a global shop window. We will seek corporate sponsorship for physical prizes.
