Perhaps a bit different in context but that seemed to work quite well for
the schools project at the time. Gained quite a lot of publicity - try
putting Otto into Google.

That's really cool, Ian. Would it be possible to do something like
that again, for LibO?

If you run a competition you can have a get out clause which reserves the
right not to use any of the entries.

Oh, sure. And require provision of all source files, with the
necessary rights. Plus, use of Open Source software and free fonts for
the production. It's important that the selected artwork be
maintainable and develop-able in the future. Hopefully, the artist
would be or would become a team member. But, even if not, one can use
and adapt someone else's work if that work satisfies the important
criteria from the outset... We'd just have to figure out a reasonable
set of rules.

0.2 cents.
