> Help Keep LGM Free for Developers and Artists
> Your contribution can help make Libre Graphics Meeting 2011 (LGM) a
> success! All funds donated by the community to the LGM 2011 Pledgie
> campaign go directly towards providing travel reimbursement to the
> developers of free graphics applications like GIMP, Inkscape, Scribus,
> Open Font Library, and MyPaint, and to the artists that use these apps
> to create their work.
> Libre Graphics Meeting is an invaluable meeting ground for developers
> and end users because it brings them together face to face.
> Underwriting travel costs is essential to LGM's success, as many open
> source developers and independent artists and designers cannot count
> on employer-provided travel. LGM has been free of charge since the
> very beginning -- but as the open source community continues to
> expand, the economy getting tougher, attendance keeps increasing, and
> the need for LGM support is greater than ever.
> Your support is vital for the continued success of LGM, whether you
> are a developer, an attendee, or simply a fan of free graphics
> software. Click here to make a donation:
> No matter what the size of your individual donation, you can also help
> us spread the word: add the LGM Pledge button to your site, and blog
> about the event to raise awareness.
> For larger organizations and companies, we have platinum, gold,
> silver, bronze and copper levels of sponsorship which give you
> attention and eyeballs on your company and products for supporting

> About Libre Graphics Meeting 2011 in Montreal
> May 10-13, École Polytechnique Engineering School
> Programmers and artists from around the world are headed to Montreal
> for the 6th annual Libre Graphics Meeting in May. The Libre Graphics
> Meeting is an annual gathering for the users and developers of free
> and open source creative software: artistic tools that are free for
> anyone to use and modify. LGM gives software developers, artists,
> musicians, designers and other creative professionals the opportunity
> to collaborate, share their work and learn from each other.
> The Libre Graphics Meeting exists to unite and accelerate the efforts
> behind Free, Libre and Open Source creative software. Organised by
> volunteers from the international Libre Graphics Community since 2006,
> this annual meeting is the premiere conference for developers, users
> and supporters of projects such as GIMP, Inkscape, Blender, Krita,
> Scribus, Hugin, the Open Clipart Library, and the Open Font Library.
> At LGM, teams gather to work on interoperability, shared standards,
> and new ideas. Work at prior LGMs has pushed the state of the art in
> important areas such as color management, cross-application sharing of
> assets, and common formats.
