Blender development is moving to the B-Con 3 stage. Sometime in the not-to-distant future, a shiny, new Blender 2.35 will appear with amazing new features, a hive of bug fixes, even prettier code, and, of course, a new splash screen. And a new splash screen means a new Splash Screen Contest.
Nothing official yet, but judges are being chosen. The judges will run the contest as they see fit with whatever rules and themes they may decide. But some things you can count on: There will be a template. It will have version 2.35. You will want to use it.
So, just between me and you, time to fire up the creativity. There will be an Official Announcement soon. In the meantime, keep this under your hat.
See how your Uncle Stiv takes care of you?
