Hi Inkscape folks!
Fedora is going to be promoting Inkscape at the South by Southwest expo
in Austin, Texas next week. We've got a booth and we're running a
contest where each of the four days we're featuring a specific free &
open source application, and one of the days we are highlighting
You can see the Inkscape logo stamps we made and the postcards where
folks will be getting their cards stamped to enter a contest here:
We also highlighted Lorain Baird's Inkscape-created winning poster
design entry into the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation contest on
one of the flyers we'll be distributing:
(second flyer, upper left)
We also have beautiful tri-fold brochures, one for graphic designers,
which also highlights Inkscape:
We're going to be talking up Inkscape and really trying to build up
awareness of it and to encourage the very creative and tech savvy folks
at SXSW to give it a try and even contribute back to it. If any Inkscape
users or developers are going to be at SXSW, we'd like to invite you to
drop by our booth and say hi (you can even get your photo taken with Tux
at our booth! :) ) It's booth #344 in the expo hall.
In Fedora we absolutely love (I'd go so far as to say worship!) Inkscape
and we're hoping our enthusiasm shows through at the show in getting
folks to give it a try :)

I can not speak for the Inkscape-Community but personally I want to say thank your for you efforts in promoting Inkscape!
Unfortunately I am in Austria so I can not attend SxSW but I hope you have a great time!
