Congratuations to the winners of the Ubuntu 17.04 Free Culture Showcase!

Group Description

Read more about the Ubuntu 17.04 Free Culture Showcase here!

We're looking for photographic wallpapers: lovely backgrounds that greet the user on Ubuntu's welcome screen and at login, and provide a main color for the Unity Dash! We're also looking for an illustrative wallpaper that plays off the theme "Zesty Zapus".

* Images shouldn’t be too busy and filled with too many shapes and colors, a similar tone throughout is a good rule of thumb.
* A single point of focus, a single area that draws the eye into the image, can also help you avoid something too cluttered.
* The left and top edges are home to Ubuntu’s Launcher and Panel so be careful to consider how your images look in place so as not to clash with the user interface. Try them out on your own desktop; see how they feel.
* Try your image at different aspect ratios to make sure something important isn’t cropped out on smaller/ larger screens at different resolutions.
* Take a look at the wallpapers guidance on the Ubuntu Wiki regarding the size of images. Our target resolution is 3840 x 2400. This might result in a centered, 1080x1920 cropped image on Ubuntu phones, so keep this in mind!

Break all the rules except the resolution one! :D
