March 31, 2009 - Release 0.19 of Open Clip Art Library
(http://www.openclipart.org), containing over 12,000 high quality scalable
vector graphics (SVG) files released into the public domain by over a 1000
artists, is now available for download and use. In celebration of this
accomplishment, since OCALâ??s last release happened in 2005, and March
being 5th anniversary of the Open Clip Art Library (OCAL), the OCAL
community set a goal to achieve 10,000 uploaded pieces of vector graphics.
The project achieved this with the 10,000th submission from user Boobaloo
who uploaded a graphic of an onion. The project congratulates Boobaloo for
uploading the 10,000th upload. Also, project congratulates all artists who
have uploaded in this anniversary OCAL10K sprint.
The project congratulates Nicu who personally crossed the 500 clip art
upload barrier and now has 696 pieces of clip art uploaded to the system.
All efforts towards the OCAL10K goal helped boost the siteâ??s
registrations and focus on releasing monthly packages once more to make
this project a flowing river of clip art uploads. Since all contributions
to the project are released into the public domain via the Creative
Commons Public Domain Dedication, anyone may use the Open Clip Art Library
files for any use including collections, to make money, and to generate
compositions. However, the community encourages anyone who uses the clip
art to provide attribution back to the original clip art in the form of a
link or to announce the use of the clip art in some form.
For the month of April in lead up to the annual Libre Graphics Meeting
2009 in Montreal, May 5-9, 2009, the Open Clip Art Library is setting a
goal to achieve 12,000 pieces of uploaded clip art related to spring time,
