Hi open source enthusiasts,
We’re excited to announce that the fifth edition of the Google Code-in 2014 contest  will start December 1st for students and run until January 19th, 2015 . Teenagers from around the world will have the opportunity to work with real open source software projects by working on tasks including coding, documentation, outreach, training and user interface tasks. Over the past four years we have had 1575 students from 78 countries work on tasks for over 30 open source projects.
We’re looking forward to another fun and exciting contest this year and hope you’ll participate yourself if you are eligible and also spread the word to friends, family, and colleagues about the program. Please check out the timeline  for more important dates.
Please see our blog post , FAQs , and the contest site  for contest rules and other details on the contest. You can also sign up for the contest discussion list . Our program website  has slide decks, logos, a getting started guide and other information that can help you plan for this year's contest too.
You can register as a student once the contest begins on Monday, December 1st at 17:00 UTC.
If you are part of an open source organization that would like to apply to be a mentoring organization for this year's contest the applications open for organizations on Monday, October 27th and end on Monday, November 10th.
Help us spread the word to the teens in your life.

I'm new to this contest and might I ask what programming languages will appear in the contest? I know the mentoring organisations haven't even applied etc but could you give me a range of what might be necessary.
Thanks in advance

Last year's GCI featured very little front-end specific tasks. I managed to grab a few icon changes, button designs and brochure designs but that was about it. Will we be seeing more graphic/web design oriented tasks this year?
