Submissions are now open for the Xubuntu 22.04 LTS wallpaper contest.

Artists, photographers, and digital designers have until March 12th to submit up to 5 pieces of original work for potential inclusion in the Xubuntu 22.04 LTS release in April.

The Xubuntu team plan to pick 6 winners from those submitted (which means there’s more chance of being picked than in regular Ubuntu’s wallpaper contest which is only going to select 2 winners).

The usual sort of rules apply: no brand names or trademarks; nothing saucy, salacious, or subversive; nothing political, religious, or nationalistic; and, perhaps most importantly of all, no artwork that isn’t entirely original (or derived from something that has a permissive license)!

When designing, try to aim for an image that’s at least 2560 x 1600 pixels or larger, avoid text (it doesn’t scale nicely); and try to create something that compliments the layout of the Xubuntu desktop (i.e. don’t hide the best bits of your work behind panels, etc).

Winners not only bag themselves some serious bragging rights but will get a small batch of Xubuntu stickers โ€” a nice touch!
