Blender 2.60 splash contest

Will YOUR artwork feature on the splash screen of Blender 2.60?

Beorn Leonard writes:
Hello Blenderheads!
Well, 2.60 is just around the corner. All the devs have been working hard to get this out, now it’s the artists’ chance to get involved. We need a cool splash screen! This is your chance to show the capabilities of our favourite 3d package, as well as show all of us what you can do.
