Community wallpaper contest

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 :).

Trusty Tahr artwork last sprint

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!
