Here he is (by chance, he's called Andrea too): (EN) (IT)
A quick web search shows that in the end he managed to become a graphic 
designer indeed!

The mascot is at the end of
but it didn't have that much recognition in the end.

Indeed, as Ian pointed out, the main value of that competition was in 
getting media exposure; while in this (OpenOffice 4.0 visual identity)

outcome, so a clear RFP (Request for proposal) as Graham proposes will 
help and it is an excellent first step.
