  • Xubuntu 20.04 community wallpaper contest

    We’re on our way to the 20.04 LTS release and it’s time for another community wallpaper contest!

  • Xubuntu 20.04 LTS Wallpaper Contest Is Now Open for Submissions

    The Xubuntu team announced today that it is organizing a wallpaper contest to celebrate the upcoming Xubuntu 20.04 LTS (Focal Fossa) operating system release.

    With less than two months before the release of Xubuntu 20.04 LTS (Focal Fossa), the Xubuntu community interested in contributing beautiful artwork to the upcoming operating system release is invited to submit their artwork to the official wallpaper contest.

    The Xubuntu 20.04 LTS wallpaper content is aimed at the Xubuntu community, of course, but anyone who wishes to see its artwork displayed in front of hundreds of thousands of users who will install the Focal Fossa release after April 2020 are invited to contribute.

    However, there are a few rules to follow before diving in. First, you can only submit a total of five pieces of artwork, so make sure you submit only the best of the best and that their quality is top notch.

    Like similar wallpaper contests run bu other Linux distros and flavours, Xubuntu is seeking to curate a set of superbly composed community-contributed photos or illustrations that it can ship by default as part of its upcoming LTS release.

    As well as being featured in the default install image of Xubuntu 20.04 LTS, due on April 23, 2020, the six lucky winners will also snare some swish Xubuntu stickers too!

    The Xubuntu 20.04 LTS wallpaper contest is open for entries until March 13, 2020.

    Naturally there are a few rules participants will need to bear in mind when selecting (or creating) artwork.

    Entrants may submit up to 5 pieces of work (only) which, obviously, must be totally original unless otherwise permitted by a compliant license.

    Subject matter should remain tasteful and safe for work, and should not include or otherwise infringe on any copyrights, trademarks, or protected logo out there.

    Finally, submissions should be at least 2560 x 1600 pixels in size.

    We would like to extend a huge thank you to everyone who submitted a wallpaper for the Ubuntu Studio 20.04 LTS wallpaper contest. We had 41 submissions, out of which we have narrowed it down to 17 of the best.

    Out of these 17, the top 10 will be selected to be a part of Ubuntu Studio 20.04’s wallpaper selection. Please note that none of these will be selected to be the default desktop wallpaper as that’s already being done by a long-time member of the Ubuntu Studio development team.

    The gallery is shown below. Below that is a straw poll. Vote for your favorites that you’d like to see included in Ubuntu Studio 20.04 LTS. Please limit your votes to 10 images.

    Voting ends on Friday, March 6th at 5:00pm (17:00), US Pacific Time
