Contest: Default PCDM Theme

Calling all creative PC-BSD users! The developers at PC-BSD would like your help in designing a brand new theme for the PCDM login manager. The winning entry will see their own customized skin as the default theme in the next official release of PC-BSD! In addition, we would like to present the winner and runner-ups with these awesome prizes:

1st Prize: A PC-BSD Isotope T-shirt, PC-BSD stickers, BSD wristbands, plus misc FreeBSD swag items.(Total ARV: $40)

Honorable mentions: PC-BSD schwag package (ARV: $15)

Contest start:11:00am PST on June 19th, 2013

Contest end:11:00am PST on July 8th, 2013

Please submit your entries in an email to the PC-BSD developers mailing list[1] along with your email contact information. The format we require is a *.tar.gz archive containing all the image files as well as *.theme file. Please title the subject heading “Entry for PCDM Theme Contest” in order to be considered.

A sample theme can be found on the PC-BSD GitHub account[2], with additional information about PCDM theming available on the PC-BSD wiki[3]. General icons should be 128 pixels square or smaller, with background images large enough to be automatically scaled/trimmed to the appropriate screen resolution where possible (for sample purposes consider 1024×768 to be the smallest supported screen resolution).

Have fun everyone, and good luck!

Standard disclaimers apply. iXsystems and PC-BSD team members are encouraged to submit entries, but will not be eligible for prizes. Void where prohibited.
