GRASS Posters

The GRASS Project team is looking for posters that can be used to show what GRASS is and what GRASS can do!! The GRASS community will vote for the best posters. The best three will be made available on the GRASS project website.

We are looking for two types of poster: One poster should focus on motivating GRASS development, while the other should focus on motivating people to use GRASS.

Posters in german can be submitted to the GAV. The best submission will be rewarded. For details see the GAV page.
