The Winner of the About Screen Contest for Inkscape 1.0 is ...
'Island of Creativity'
Congratulations to Bayu Rizaldhan Rayes, the artist of this fantastic image!
25 Inkscape contributors selected the image from the five finalist
images. It will grace the 'About Inkscape' dialog of our very special
release Inkscape 1.0.
The winner was determined via Instant Runoff Vote in the openSTV
software. The voting result and the ballot file are available at
We are very happy about the variety and number of submissions to the
contest, and the involvement of so many community members and
contributors in the voting process.
We are already working on finding good places for making use of other
fantastic entries from the contest gallery :) Tutorials, the Inkscape
website, the development version and more all need new, cool pictures to
show off Inkscape's abilities and its awesome community.

of the vote via mailing list. If you didn't get one, please verify with
me that your vote is counted.
The winner will be announced publicly and be made visible in the gallery

Thank you everyone!
Put the numbers in order of preference, so '32154' would mean 3 is
your first choice, 2 is your second choice etc. You don't have to rank
all numbers if you don't want to.
The system that is used for determining the winner is
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Instant-runoff_voting, using the package
openSTV from Ubuntu repositories. Ties will be broken randomly.
Name or nickname:
The name you usually use in your communication in the Inkscape project,
required in case you change your vote or forgot that you had already voted.
Contribution to Inkscape:
As we have decided to allow voting from Inkscape contributors (as
opposed to C++ developers and translators in the AUTHORS file only),
please help us with determining your eligibility for voting by telling
us what you do or did in the Inkscape project (very short, only main
area, e.g. 'writing Inkscape code', 'writing website code', 'writing
news articles', 'setting up infrastructure', 'translating', 'forum
moderation', 'bug triage', 'board member' etc.).
For future votes, we're thinking of using the system on the website.
Consider joining one or more teams  there, and to add a description
to your user profile that outlines what you do here a bit, in
preparation for that :)
