As developers all over the world sink their teeth into the new features for the next release of Ubuntu it’s time to get out our cameras, brushes and pencils out and start creating the images that will make up the wallpapers for the next release. 12.04 will be an LTS so the same super high quality that the teams delivering the desktop experience are working to should inspire us to make this the best wallpaper set we’ve released yet!
As usual there is a group on Flickr set up for your submissions – Precise Pangolin wallpaper submissions group. Simply upload your pictures to Flickr – accounts are free – and again as usual the contributors who were selected last time will be the ones asked to choose from the final selection of images. For guidance around what might make appropriate content, image resolutions to be used and the like check out the Ubuntu Artwork team wiki page on wallpapers.
You can see from the Pangolin Release Schedule that the development process is well under way so we’ll be accepting entries until March 15th 18:00 UK time with a view to choosing the images and getting them into the release the following week as the Beta Freeze closes. Questions are welcome on my iain at ubuntu dot com address or on IRC in #ubuntu-design where you’ll find me, like-minded community members and Canonical’s designers.
So get snapping, sketching and painting!
