Sponsoring Libre Graphics Meeting

Since 2006, the Inkscape, Scribus, Gimp, Blender, Krita, Open Clip Art Library, Open Font Library and other Free and Open Source Graphics communities have come together to make an annual developer and users conference. The Libre Graphics Meeting (LGM) is the annual meeting for developers and users of free software graphics applications to collaborate and advance the cause of high-quality free graphics software. The 6th annual LGM will be held May 10-13, 2011 in Montreal.

We are seeking sponsorship will allow us to put on this event. We are trying to raise at least $20K from corporations, and another $12K from the global community. Sponsorship will be used to provide travel subsidies to the developers who work on Free and Open Source Graphics projects around the world, often for free in their spare time and to help offset the cost of assembling the top developers and users of free and open source graphics software to make it better. LGM is THE annual meeting they need to coordinate their efforts towards better applications and better integration between applications. For most teams, LGM is the only moment these people will be able to talk between eyes. It’s not only important, it’s crucial work.

The Libre Graphics Meeting organisation provides sponsorship levels which we hope you will consider:

Platinum (Greater than 10K $USD)

  • Your company logo and link on each page of the LGM website
  • Once sponsorship received, will be thanked in email communications and press releases

Gold (10K $USD)

With the growing, but still tough economy, many companies, governments and people are turning to Free and Open Source Software. We are committed to improving Free and Open Source Graphics and getting more people to use the software we, including you and your organization, make together.
