LibreOffice is looking for a pet


When we talk about Linux, the penguin always comes to mind; if we talk about Mozilla, the dinosaur always appears; if we speak of Gnu sooner or later the «wildebeest» appears.

All major programs as well as distributions have a mascot or logo that identifies them. But not all. LibreOffice, the famous office suite, does not have any pets and the logo is identified by the icon of the documents.

That is why the organization responsible for LibreOffice has called a contest to choose the new mascot for the office suite. This pet has to comply with a series of requirements and requests from the contest organizers. The contest winners will receive a Slimbook Katana, the contest runner-up will receive a Nextcloud bundle with Raspberry Pi 3, and the contest winner will win a Nitrokey Pro 3.

LibreOffice has opened the contest to search for a pet to the entire community

The deadline to deliver the drawings about the new mascot will be August 31, after which they will be published so that LibreOffice users can vote freely. In spite of everything, the decision of the new mascot will finally be in the LibreOffice Board of Directors, so if the winning mascot is not really to the liking of the managers, they will be able to choose a different one.

In any case, if you want to participate, the address to send the drawings is this. As well as you we link the directives or standards that drawings must have to be accepted.

Really having or not having a pet will not make LibreOffice more used or not, it will not make new features appear or correct bugs, but it is true that for future generations, who will use LibreOffice, it will be a reference or a visual aid Don't you think so?
