This has been a fantastic contest. On behalf of the Ubuntu Budgie team and all Ubuntu Budgie users, many thanks to everyone who has taken part. Competition winners have been announced on our blog.

Join the group to start a discussion!

Group Description

Community contest to find the best desktop photos and images to showcase Ubuntu Budgie.

We’re looking for photographic wallpapers: lovely backgrounds that users can choose for the login and desktop backgrounds. Pictures should be unique that never have been entered for any previous Ubuntu Distro competition at anytime is the past.

Group Rules

• 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.
• 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 (4K).
• No brand names or trademarks of any kind.
• No branding assets like "ubuntu-budgie" or text in order to permit use by derivative distributions.
• No version numbers as some may prefer to continue to use your theme with an older version of Ubuntu.
• No illustrations some may consider inappropriate, offensive, hateful, tortuous, defamatory, slanderous or libellous.
• No sexually explicit or provocative images.
• No images of weapons or violence.
• No alcohol, tobacco, or drug use imagery.
• No designs which promotes bigotry, racism, hatred or harm against groups or individuals; or promotes discrimination based on race, gender, religion, nationality, disability, sexual orientation or age.
• No religious, political, or nationalist imagery.

Break all the rules except the resolution one!

• Use PNG & JPG formats
