The linuxaudio.org portal is the official home for Linux Audio
Developers, Linux Audio Users and the Linux Audio Consortium.
There are several other projects that are hosted on the server as
subdomains. In general they work independently of each other and have no
specific theme that is officially mandated.
It is time to change the mandate to have a more general theme or thread
woven into the templates of the various sub domains that identifies the
projects as being part of the portal and reflect the worldwide nature of
the Linux Audio Community.
If anyone has ideas, suggestions or feels creative enough to design a
template that can be used as a basis for the theme we always welcome
To make it a little more fun we will run a competition for the design.
The competition will be hosted here:

The prizes will be officially presented at the next Linux Audio

To start things off Boost Hardware will sponsor $US500 to be distributed
for the prizes. I am also seeking offers of sponsorship from any
businesses that work with Linux Audio software and community projects.
There are a few of you out there so don't be shy. This is a great
opportunity to show your support.
The deadline for submissions will be the 31 Jan 2009. All submissions
will need to be licensed as open source. The official decision for the
winners of the prizes will be made by private vote of the Consortium
board. It will be entirely in the discretion of the Consortium board how
to apply the designs/ideas/templates or concepts that are finally
selected. No members of the consortium board or sponsors will be
elligible for prizes but submissions will still be accepted.
We will provide more detailed information as the deadline approaches.
