The results are in!
The poll is up!
Cast your vote by choosing 5 wallpapers that you’d like to see in Lubuntu 14.10.
As we are a bit short on time this time around, we will have to close the poll on the 10th of September.
Please feel free to share the word and good luck to all contestants!
It’s that time of year when Lubuntu asks the community to contribute an artistic touch to the distribution.
We know… We’re late… But here we go again!
Please feel free to join us at Flickr and upload your favourite creation, that’s right, one submission per user this time.
Submissions are accepted until 4th September 23:59:59 UTC+01:00, and the polls will open shortly after that. The polls will be open until 9th September, and the top five wallpapers will be included by default in Lubuntu Utopic Unicorn.
Please make sure to follow the rules, as failing to do so will get you disqualified.
Again, sorry for the late announcement. We actually had another concept in mind for this release, but unfortunately it will have to wait.
Good luck to all contestants and please help us spread the word :).
The results are in and the winners are… or rather, the winner is:
Cleide Isabel! She managed to grab the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th place with her photos: ‘Vista Do Fitz Roy’, ‘Vale’, ‘Arvore’, ‘Daisie’ and ‘Copan02’.
Congratulations! Full results and statistics can be viewed over at Picompete by clicking here.
A big thank you goes out to Guillaume (the owner of Picompete) who once again helped us host our community contest. Guillaume is not only a supporter of Lubuntu but also a supporter of open source, and he welcomes other open source projects to use his service free of charge.
Thanks to everyone who participated in the contest by either submitting wallpapers or voting. We really enjoy letting you all be a part of Lubuntu in some way and that’s why we do this contest. Thank you all for your continued support!
Another year, our fellow (and Ubuntu member) Nathan Heafner prepared the Ubuntu community survey, a simple and quick test (no more than 2 minutes, trust me) whose results will help a lot to the entire community of those (like us!) who make Ubuntu and its flavours more secure, useable and beautiful. You’ll be asked about your preferred desktop (I’m sure it’s LXDE for Lubuntu), web browser, if you prefer using a mail client or not, if you want a startup sound, etc.
Please, feel free to answer these questions here.
Ladies and gentlemen, cast your votes!
The poll that will decide our additional wallpapers for Trusty Tahr is now up and running. To cast your vote head here and choose your five favorite wallpapers.

Spread the word and good luck to all contestants!
Now it’s time to you to prove that you’re an artist. Please, feel free to join us at Flickr and upload your creation. The best 5 will become part of Lubuntu 14.04 distro. You can read the rules (the obvious, no violence, no offensive symbols, no trademarks, etc. just your art) and join here.
We’re about to “freeze” the artwork for this upcoming release, the Trusty Tahr. In a few days we’ll present the Community Wallpaper Contest so anybody should upload his own creation.
You can read here all the details of this artwork release. Also, I will upgrade the download links in this blog (sorry, can’t handle everything so fast) so other Linux (not Ubuntu) may use it. More information to come. Stay tuned!
