Corel has announced the tenth Anniversary World Design Contest. The contest is open to users of Corel graphics products, and entries are welcome between October 1 1999 to June 30 2000. The contest, first held in 1990, has become an international forum to recognize the best talent in computer illustration.

Corel welcomes graphic designs in the following categories: People, Plants & Animals; Abstracts; Technical Drawings; Page Layout & Promotional Works; Corporate & Product Identification; and Web Design Splash Screens. Winning designs are selected throughout the year from the submitted entries. Corel and other contest sponsors award prizes.

"We look forward to seeing graphic design submissions from around the world in this year's World Design Contest," said Dr. Michael Cowpland, president and chief executive officer of Corel Corporation. "The incredible talent displayed through these computer illustrations demonstrates the unlimited potential Corel software offers."
