Default Fedora Art Team Monthly Picks

Nicu and I had an idea that maybe the Fedora Art Team could do a monthly

best art works producing using Fedora (inkscape, gimp, etc., it just has
to be software that's available in Fedora used to produce it.)


I think this might be a good way of getting more recognition to our
artists as well as to what Fedora can do. If it's done in a monthly
format, then the works would be well-organized and easy to find, a
one-stop nice gallery of things you can do with Fedora.


So to have it crystal-clear: it is about graphics produced *with*
Fedora, not *about* Fedora. Like a place where the member of the team
can showcase their work and get famous.


One idea we had for implementing it at first would be to keep it simple,
have the artworks posted in the Fedora wiki, similar to how Fedora
Weekly News is published now. We could take submissions from an incoming
submissions wiki page where people can paste the links to their artwork
they'd like considered. And when a new release is available one of us on
Fedora Planet can blog about it to get some publicity going. Maybe later
on if it takes off we could have a Gallery install or a Flickr photo
pool to manage submissions. (and use the RSS feeds to create a planet
just for the artworks / incoming submissions)


There are many ways to implement this, one other alternative would be
for every of us to provide a RSS feed from his own hosting solution and
aggregate that.
The important part is to know if there are enough people in the team
interested in this (so we would have enough content to show).


We could have a monthly theme that the artworks should relate to or we
could keep it completely open. We could accept just visual works or we
could also accept animations, movies, 3d models, music, etc.


At least for the start I think it would be better to have it completely
open. Once we get to a number of contributors, then we can think about
monthly themes.


I wonder if it is a good think to link this somehow with the Wallpaper
Extras gallery.... those are usually photos, so not produced with Fedora
but they are also creations of our community.


I think licensing implications are something interesting too. Should we
require a specific license to be considered? Source artwork?


As this is mostly a "showcase" my opinion is that we could get to "free
to use", without source requirements.

Now this is something I like,
am still finding it hard learning new skills
With no short-term (practically none) memory.

But taking a longer approach could work for me (ray of hope).
