Congratulations to the finalists! Ubuntu 18.04 LTS will be prettier thanks to you: www.nhaines.com/blog/2018/04/08/announcing-ubuntu-18.04-l...

Group Description

Read more about the Ubuntu 18.04 LTS 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 pleasing background for the desktop! We're also looking for illustrative wallpapers that play off the theme "Bionic Beaver".

* 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.
* Photos should not include watermarks or logos.
* The left and top edges are home to Ubuntu’s dock 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.

Above all, be creative! :D
