More than 40 community wallpapers have been shortlisted for inclusion in Ubuntu 11.10.

CD size contraints mean that it is unlikely all 44 wallpapers will ship on the Ubuntu CD. Ubuntu’s Ian Farrell, who oversees the bi-annual wallpaper contest, has said he aims to get as many into the final release on October 13th as possible – so if you have a favourite keep your fingers crossed!

The Ubuntu Community Wallpaper contest is run each cycle and allows users to submit photo and illustrative wallpapers for potential inclusion in Ubuntu by default.
