Template contest results show off capabilities of OOo

Filed under
OOo

The contest resulted in some superior and innovative work. "Some of
the templates show just how advanced and flexible Openoffice.org's
Opendocument Format is as both a Word and Spreadsheet ODF processor.
The winning templates and many others breaks a myth that
Openoffice.org cannot do advanced editing functions like Microsoft
Word or Microsoft Excel. It is obvious that Openoffice.org has come of
age and is more than just a free alternative to MS Office but is an
extremely worthy competitor" said Russell Ossendryver Managing
Director of Worldlabel.com

The winning template, a Thesis template for Writer designed by
Matthias Ansorg - the overall detail, comprehensiveness, complexity,
presentation, and use of different elements and functions. The entry
not only included drawing elements and hyperlink organization, but
also a CD, and a use of lists, bullets and colors that is exceptional.
The implementation of the Bibliography and use of it was excellent.
2nd place winner, a perpetual calender in Calc made advanced use of
formulas and is a great template for all users. The 5th place winner,
Mapcharts (Calc template), out of the shear complexity and innovation
of the template. It demonstrates how one can add to Openoffice.org and
create many other useful applications and advanced ODF documents.

http://www.worldlabel.com ran this competition in conjunction with the
OpenOffice.org Documentation Project and has committed to a 2007
competition. "We want to keep adding ODF templates to the Openoffice
template repository as the ODF standard keeps gaining popularity" said
Russell OpenOffice.org lives as open SOURCE Community of the interest
and commitment of it's users and project members. The templates from
