Five thousand dollars in prizes were awarded last week at the conclusion of the OpenOffice.org Template and Clipart Contest, reports the Ubuntu Blog.
LXer announces “The contest resulted in some superior and innovative work. “Some of the templates show just how advanced and flexible Openoffice.org’s OpenDocument format is as both a Word and Spreadsheet ODF processor. The winning templates and many others breaks a myth that Openoffice.org cannot do advanced editing functions like Microsoft Word or Microsoft Excel. It is obvious that Openoffice.org has come of age and is more than just a free alternative to MS Office but is an extremely worthy competitor” said Russell Ossendryver.”
Project sponsor WorldLabel.com has already committed to a second annual contest in 2007 because of this year’s success.
