Due to the low number of entries received so far, the deadline for the R 
Home Page Graphic Competition has been extended to February 29 2004.

The free registration to useR! 2004 is still available and if we do not 
receive any image that we can use for the home page, we will draw a name 
at random from among the submissions we receive.

The original competition announcement is included below:

> R Home Page Graphic Competition
> ===============================
> We're looking for a snazzy graphic for the home page of the R Project.
> Please send us your favourite R image and the best (as chosen by R-core) 
> will be used on the web site.  The author of the winning image will also 
> receive *free registration* for the useR! 2004 conference 
> (http://www.ci.tuwien.ac.at/Conferences/useR-2004/)
> The original image should be produced using R.  Images which have been 
> "jazzed up" using a graphics program such as gimp will also be 
> considered (but may suffer an "impurity" penalty in the judging).
> Please send images and source code (and data) used to produce them, to 
> paul at stat.auckland.ac.nz
> R-core reserves the right to decide that the R user base is just as 
> devoid of artistic talent as R-core itself;  we only promise to make use 
> of zero or more of the submitted images on the web site.
> The R-core development team.
