Probably Inkscapeforum.com is a good place to start.
Anyway, I'd suggest you to think twice before proposing such contest.
You're offering a very small amount of money as a price (far below the
street price of a logo, even for my country where our currency is 1/4
of a dollar) and these kind of contests are perceived generally as a
cheap strategy to get several logos offering almost nothing.
It may damage your reputation among the designers and you'll only get
design proposals from hobbists with a poor or non-existing knowledge
Contests are generally considered as spec-work, and serious designers
really hate that.
If you don't have money, maybe the best thing is to announce that you
need a logo, that you have that money and no more and let the people
interested decide if they want to design something for that amount.
You could ask for a portfolio of the interested people and choose one,
and from that point continue working as a regular contract work.
Hello, all. Our company is sponsoring a small logo contest (two logos -
USD 150 each) and I'd like to advertise it to the Inkscape user
community. I did not see a commercial announcements list and did not
want to abuse the user list. What would be the appropriate way to
distribute the details of the contest to Inkscape users? Thanks - John
Is there a standard or available Inkscape color palette limited to
colors that can be expressed in CMYK? The colors of course will be
handled as RGB internally within Inkscape but limiting the gamut in
this way will lessen problem later on in my workflow.

There is an output option for Inkscape 48 called PDF em CMYK. It is
not covered in any of the books. When I select it I get a popup window
written in Portugese. If I save it anyhow I get warning messages.
Is there an English language explanation of this feature?
Do I need to load additional software?

apologies for Xposting
i am working on a performative installation in which inkscape is used.
the idea is that people can draw on the screen (in inkscape) and a
constantly refreshing screengrab is streamed to a server (in pure data)
which displays it on a webpage. this page also displays a performer in
australia. both 'screens' (australia + touchscreen in amsterdam) are
communicating together through drawing/touch.
what i am missing in inkscape for all this to run smoothly is:
1) full screen option (not even showing the menu bar 'File', 'Edit',
etc., *only* the canvas).
2) a graphical button (i.e. filled green circle) which, when 'pressed',
will 'save as' (to record the current vector drawing to a folder with a
numerically incrementing filename), 'select all', 'erase', 'return
pointer to paintbrush tool option'.
the situation is that i have very little time to figure this out and i
can imagine that for some people on this list this is rather easy to
implement. therefore i hope that someone out there has a bit of time and
perhaps an inclination to work on this. there is of course budget for
this and proper credits to the programmer/developper and promotion of
inkscape project will be included in the project documentation.
the project runs on nov. 6th. (thus very quick deadline).
you can contact me @ this email address or on irc.indymedia.org #etc. i
tried to join #inkscape but i cannot post.
I noticed a strange bug that happens on newer inkscape version.
In the attached archive you can see the svg file i'm trying to convert into PDF.
The file b.pdf was created with Inkscape 0.46 (Apr 5 2008), and it looks fine.
File a.pdf was created with Inkscape 0.47 r22583 (Jan 20 2010), and does not preserve the fill transparency of the simple shape.
Both files were created via commandline on linux servers, with the sintax:
inkscape -z clip.svg --export-pdf=a.pdf --export-text-to-path
To check, i've also tried the very last version, 0.48, installed in windows.
I've opened the svg file, then i simply saved it as PDF: result is identical to the wrong file a.pdf
Thanks in advance,
I've had the same problem with Inkscape in windows. Some truetype fonts aren't detected. The explanation I was given at the time was that Inkscape is very picky about fonts and low quality fonts that don't completely conform to the font specification get ignored. That didn't explain why I could use the same fonts in Linux, though.

Thanks for the advice, though it didn't help much. The FAQ writes about
a similar issue, but it is supposed to be solved in 0.48.
Izirajder writes about installing fonts in Windoze, but it doesn't help
me, because these fonts have already been installed.
These fonts are true type, so they should be fully supported.
Anyone knows something more?
