The Liberated Pixel Cup (LPC) art contest started today. If you don’t know what LPC is, it’s a two-part competition: make a bunch of awesome free culture licensed artwork, and then program a bunch of free software games that use it.

The project is supported by Creative Commons, Mozilla, OpenGameArt and the Free Software Foundation. It is a great initiative to boost the availability of free assets for indie developers.
