Ubuntu is a testament to the power of sharing, and we use the default selection of desktop wallpapers in each release as a way to celebrate the larger Free Culture movement. Talented artists across the globe create media and release it under licenses that don’t simply allow, but cheerfully encourage sharing and adaptation. This cycle’s Free Culture Showcase for Ubuntu 17.04 is now underway!
We’re halfway to the next LTS, and we’re looking for beautiful wallpaper images that will literally set the backdrop for new users as they use Ubuntu 17.04 every day. Whether on the desktop, phone, or tablet, your photo or can be the first thing Ubuntu users see whenever they are greeted by the ubiquitous Ubuntu welcome screen or access their desktop.
Submissions will be handled via Flickr at the Ubuntu 17.04 Free Culture Showcase – Wallpapers group, and the submission window begins now and ends on March 5th.
More information about the Free Culture Showcase is available on the Ubuntu wiki at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuFreeCultureShowcase.
I’m looking forward to seeing the 10 photos and 2 illustrations that will ship on all graphical Ubuntu 17.04-based systems and devices on April 13th!
