KPresenter Template Contest Winners announced

Wow your audience with KPresenter!

The KPresenter Template Contest was over on September 15. We are really happy with the number and the quality of the entries, and the fact that they came from all over the world. KPresenter 2.3 will be the first version of KPresenter 2 to ship with some cool templates to base your presentations on. Thanks to these templates it's easier than ever to wow your audience, your customers and your colleagues.

Some days ago the panel of judges, consisting of Thorsten Zachmann, Aaron Seigo and Eugene Trounev, sat down together -- virtually! -- to decide on the winners. As always, a difficult task. But these are the winners. Each will get a cool t-shirt:

Very nice results!

Thanks for the good job, these templates are great!

But there's one thing I can't understand: why do most of these templates include the KDE logo?

If KPresenter offers templates with the KDE logo, I guess they will mainly be used by KDE developers and hackers.

A common user not belonging to the KDE community (i.e. a student, a teacher, a conference speaker, a Nokia smartphone owner, etc.) would probably prefer a general purpose template.

These are great templates, and they can really help the diffusion of KOffice, that's why I think they should be suitable to a general use.


There are three templates with a KDE logo on them. It's just a fraction of all templates.
