Linux News Today: Ubuntu Community Calls All Artists to Contribute Wallpapers to Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
Today, Ubuntu project member Nathan Haines informs the Ubuntu community that the Ubuntu Free Culture Showcase contest is open to submissions from artists who want to contribute their awesome artwork to Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus).
Yes, you heard that right! If you’re a graphic artist designing abstract images, or a skilled photographer who shoots beautiful things, and you’ve always dreamed of having your work showcased on the next major release of the world most popular free operating system, Ubuntu Linux, then this is your chance.
“Not only will the chosen content be featured on the next set of pressed Ubuntu discs shared worldwide across the next two years, but it will serve the joint purposes of providing a perfect test for new users testing Ubuntu’s live session or new installations, but also celebrating the fantastic talents of artists who embrace Free content licenses,” said Nathan Haines in the announcement.
The Ubuntu Free Culture Showcase contest will take place on Flickr, Vimeo, and SoundCloud online services, depending on the artwork you submit for Ubuntu, and winners will get their work displayed on Canonical’s new Ubuntu 16.04 LTS operating system, due for release on April 21, 2016. Please visit the official wiki page of Ubuntu Free Culture Showcase to inform yourself on the rules and any other details you need to get started!
