Xubuntu developers announced the opening of the Xubuntu 22.04 LTS wallpaper contest. Graphic designers, artists, and photographers can submit up to 5 pieces of their artwork by March 12th. The development team will feature the best artworks from the contest in the Xubuntu 22.04 LTS release in April.
Once the submission date closes, the Xubuntu team will pick six winners from the submitted artworks; this means higher chances of getting picked than in the regular Ubuntu wallpaper contest that picks two winners. Additionally, the winners will also receive Xubuntu stickers.
The Xubuntu Wallpaper contest has some rules as follows:
- Each individual can submit up to five artworks.
- Submit just your piece of work. You can also submit artwork designed on another person’s work; however, it should be remarkably different from the original artwork. If you wish to submit a derivative work, you can do so by selecting the “Other” license type and pointing to the original link with the attribution and license.
Furthermore, the team reminds the contestants to:
- Not include any trademarks or brand names within the artwork.
- Not include any illustrations that can be offensive, inappropriate, defamatory, libelous.
- No weapons or violent imagery.
- No images of alcohol, drug or tobacco use.
- No sexually explicit or provocative images.
- Not include any designs that encourage racism, bigotry or harm against a group of people or encourage discrimination based on gender, nationality, gender or age.
- The artwork dimension should be more than or equal to 2560 X 1600.
- If the artwork you wish to submit is based on another design, you must declare the attribution.
Guidelines for Artwork Background:
- Can’t use version numbers within an artwork
- Refrain using the Xubuntu logo within an artwork
- Avoid using text in the artwork as the text may look bad when also scaled; it possesses translation issues.
- Be cautious with small patterns; when scaled, it might become irregular
- Take into consideration the look and feel of the wallpaper with the icons, panels and windows.
- Avoid using color tone and contrast so that the wallpaper overshadows other elements.
