New Release Banner Competition for TiddlyWiki v5.2.6

We’re hoping to release TiddlyWiki v5.2.6 on March 20th. As usual, we’re holding a competition to design the banner image that is shown on the splash screen and within the opening HelloThere tiddler.

Ideally, the artwork should reflect some of the changes in the new version. I’ve updated the release note for the prerelease:

Entries will be accepted until Tuesday 14th March 2023 at 8am UK time, followed by voting to select the winning entry.

The other rules/guidelines for the competition are:

  • The version number must be clear and readable even when the banner is shown at a reduced size
  • The version number must use the correct punctuation including the “v” prefix and clear full stops between the numbers
  • The image must be a PNG or JPEG of exactly 560x315 pixels
  • Note that the image is displayed at a smaller size on , so check that your artwork is legible at the display size (the scaling is done in order to yield good quality on hi-dpi displays)
  • The bottom 46 pixels will be obscured by the banner text “What’s new in 5.2.4” when it is displayed within HelloThere
  • The image need not include the word “TiddlyWiki”. The banner image is only used in contexts where it is clear that it is about TiddlyWiki
  • Feel free to enter an updated version of artwork that was a runner-up in a previous competition
  • Reply to this message with your entry, or any questions
  • Please give lots of feedback here to encourage the artists

Here are the posts about previous artwork competitions:

v5.2.4 - New Release Banner Competition for v5.2.4
v5.2.3 - New Release Banner Competition for v5.2.3
v5.2.2 -
v5.2.1 -
v5.2.0 -
v5.1.23 -
v5.1.22 -
v5.1.21 -

Note that we didn’t have a competition for v5.2.4 because it it was a bug fix release immediately after v5.2.3, and so we adapted the v5.2.3 artwork.

Good luck! I’ll be looking forward to seeing the entries.

Best wishes



I wondered why there isn’t any entry so I add my stupid one here





OK, I’ll toss something simple into the ring:


Also, the logo contest site is up and running, in case anyone wants a tour through the archives of version banner competitions. :slight_smile:



Thank you to everyone for the entries so far, and thank you @Springer for setting up the logo contest site.

Thank you everyone for the entries. The voting is now over, and I’m delighted to announce that @StS’s entry is declared the winner.

I hope it is not a controversial decision, but I have removed the peace symbol from the finished artwork. The TiddlyWiki code of conduct notes that we avoid introducing politics into our activities.


Good removal. And it doesn’t spoil the design doing so. If anything it improves it’s visual integrity.


Nice – glad to hear :slight_smile:
