Submit a FFmpeg Logo
FFmpeg is looking for themed (seasons, special events, holidays, etc) art/logos/banners, and anyone is welcome and encouraged to submit designs. If several designs for the same theme are submitted we will vote on the design, but that does not necessarily mean we will not eventually use your design if it does not win the vote. We will then upload the logo and thank the artist on our home page for your bragging rights!
Here is how to submit your logo:
1. Get the Logo Files
Original logo files by Hervé Flores if you need them for reference (also available under Attachments at the bottom of this page).
2. Submit Your Design to Trac
Trac is our bug tracker, wiki, and also where you can submit your design files. You will first have to register, and then you can make a New Ticket. Make sure to choose Type: Art, and check I have files to attach to this ticket as shown in the image below. You can ignore the other options.
On the next page you can then choose the Attach file button to upload your image(s). Note that the uploader is currently limited to 2 MB file sizes. If a file exceeds this size use a file hosting service such as datafilehost or mediafire and provide the link in your Trac ticket.
Also upload a screenshot of what the FFmpeg home page would look like with your new banner or logo. If you are unable to do this or do not know how please mention this in your ticket.
Final artwork for our web site should be less than 80k file size, but exceptions can be made. Higher resolution or vector versions that could be used in print are very welcome!
3. Tell Us About It
Submit a message to the ffmpeg-devel mailing list with the subject [LOGO] Design Submission with a description of your design and a link to your Trac ticket number. Note that unless you subscribe to the mailing list it may take up to 48 hours for your message to be approved, and this is a high-volume mailing list if you do decide to subscribe. You can also mention and discuss your design in the #ffmpeg-devel IRC channel.
4. Make Suggested Changes
We may ask you to make changes or tweak elements of your design. The artist should not take such comments too seriously since many will be written by programmers who do not have much sense for art. Upload the new design to your same Trac ticket if you decide to make changes. Keep the Replace existing attachment of the same name box unchecked so we have a copy of your previous designs.
Once your final design has been agreed upon we will upload your logo!
Usage Rights & License Information
The artist has to provide us with sufficient rights to use the art in any form: not limited to the web site, t-shirts, and print media; to refer only to the FFmpeg project at no cost to us. The rights though should be restricted enough not to allow the art from being used for non-FFmpeg representation.
If You Have Questions
