Aww. I thought I had all month to enter one and I just made a really awsome splash screen that I wanted to enter. The submissions look nice but I have to agree with GameCreator about past splash screen looking a bit better.

Some of them are very nice looking. The rest look quite amateurish. But they still aren't as cool as the splash screens from earlier versions of GIMP. I especially liked that one with a night sky and the Moon submerged in the cloudy mist, and the one with Wilbur painting his girlfriend ;)

Wow! Awesome submissions! I wish could've joined the fantastic contest too. But looking at them, it felt great to see there's some activity in the GIMP world. Way to go, guys!
