Hello fellow GIMPers.
As I was searching for a community for GIMP users or “GIMP nation” as I googled it, I can across this website (well, actually a group) where they are promoting GIMP Graphics Competition.
The original post can be found here.
The message was posted June 17th, 2008 on Yahoo Groups. The last update was June 19th of the same year. So, I don’t know if still active and being pushed through.
But this a great opportunity for the community of GIMP users. Finally, we are moving onward with the use of open source especially The GIMP.
The letter is read as follows:
To whom it may concern,
I am Rebecca, Area Education Executive from Global Software Academy
I would like to seek advise or recommendation to push forth the GIMP
Graphics Competition in Singapore as a National Competition, if
possible as a World-wide International Competition. This initiative
will be greatly appreciated by our company if we have support from the
GIMP community as a co-host to this competition.
GSA has been using open source software in our training services to
promote our pedagogy of continuous learning (Open Education)in our
local schools. We hope that this competition will encourage more young
learners in using open source software in their schools and hopefully
in their future professions. We believe such a competition will help
in nurturing young learners to be more inclined with multimedia
designing skills and thus giving them an opportunity to be recognised
at a national level or international level.
I hope to receive some feedbacks upon this interest to establish this
GIMP Graphics Competition. In any case, the GIMP community would like
to further discuss on the details, please email me at
rebecca@…. Thank you.
Will be following these sooner. Feel free to communicate with them directly. Just go to you Yahoo Groups.
