Get ready to glance over a group of images you’ll be seeing a whole lot more of in the coming months. Yes, the winners of the Ubuntu 14.10 Wallpaper contest have been unveiled.

Twelve backgrounds have been formally selected to ship on the Ubuntu 14.10 release, and all are stunning.

Having sifted through an entry pool of almost 400 images the judging panel made up of April’s winning artists have chosen a visually varied and colourful collection. I know I say it every 6 months, but this one looks to be the best yet (and not just because one or two of our own favourites made it in!)

Meet The Winners

You can see the current crop of selected images below.

You can grab a .deb installer archive of the entries for by hitting the link below. You do not need to install this to get the wallpapers: simply right click and extract.

The full Utopic Wallpapers package, which should also include the ‘new’ default wallpaper, will be pushed to development builds of Ubuntu 14.10 by the end of the week.
