KDE Video Competition Winners

By Niccolo Venerandi

On the 20th of February, our first video contest finished and winners were decided by a panel of judges.

This was the first time we run a video contest and we were really excited to see how much the community got involved, the quality of the videos and the onboarding effect that this contest would have.

All the submitted videos show great effort on behalf of the creators and it was extremely difficult to select the winner -- at one point there was even a tie! But, at last, we were able to select a winner and finalists for each category.

Without further ado, let's dive into the results:

Plasma Video Contest

The winner of the Plasma contest is Skye Fentras with their video "Plasma 2020". Congratulations! Skye will get a fantastic TUXEDO gaming PC, featuring a powerful Intel core i7, 16GB of RAM, 250GB NVMe SSD, 2TB HDD and an Nvidia GTX1050Ti video card.

Check out Skye's video below:

The three finalists for the Plasma category are:

  • KonqiDragon with his video "Plasma 5.18 Promo"
  • Nayam Amarshe with "This is Plasma"
  • Kubee for "This is Plasma"

All finalists will receive a package with a KDE baseball cap, a plush Tux, and more.
