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 9th annual LGM will be held April 2-5, 2014 in Leipzig, Germany.

We are seeking sponsorship that will allow us to put on this event. We are trying to raise at least $20K from corporations or foundations that support open source software development, and another $12K from the global community. Sponsorship will be used to provide travel subsidies to the speakers at LGM, the developers and contributors 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.
