  • Ubuntu 14.10 wallpapers – we needs ‘em!

    Iain Farrell,

    Ubuntu was once described to me by a wise(ish ;) ) man as a train that was leaving whether you’re on it or not. That’s the beauty of a 6 month release cycle. As many of you will already know, each release we include photos and illustrations produced by community members. We ask that you submit your […]

  • Thanks for all your submissions!

    Iain Farrell,

    The submissions process for Ubuntu 14.04 is now closed. If you’d like to look at the images head over to the Flickr Group. From here on a group of dedicated and splendid individuals will get together to select the images that are going to go into the next release of Ubuntu. We’ll be hanging out on #1404wallpaper on Freenode and you can come listen in :)

    Iain Farrell,

      The community team for wallpaper selection got together last week #1304wallpaper on Freenode and between us we’ve determined that we’d like to submit the following images as our delightful wallpaper selection for 13.04. Many thanks to everyone who came to discuss options and help with the selection and in particular those who highlighted that […]

  • 13.04 Shortlist in progress

    Iain Farrell,

    13.04 Shortlist in progress, a gallery on Flickr. A quick update, the previous contributors and I are putting together the finishing touches to what we hope will be a great selection.

  • Raring to ringlead this cycle

    Iain Farrell,

    Raring Ringtail is well under way with delicious new visual elements being dropped in all the time, and the new default wallpaper has already landed. Now it’s our turn to add some community contributed assets to the mix in the form of the wallpapers submitted by us, the users of Ubuntu. Last cycle we limited […]

  • 12.10 wallpaper selection finalised

    Iain Farrell,

    Here they are! Our lovely wallpapers for the 12.10 release of Ubuntu. Fine plumage I think you’ll agree! As you’ll have seen elsewhere on the web these landed in the release at the time of the freeze last week. A massive thanks to everyone who contributed, the standard was very high this time around, people […]

The team of us involved are still working to add/ remove and refine this collection before the 30th.

  • New focus for wallpaper submissions

    Iain Farrell,

    Quantal is well on the way to being the great release we’ve come to expect from Ubuntu so it’s time to add to that sheen with a set of quality wallpapers from our fantastic community. This cycle we’re going to try to make the process better than before by setting out a clearer vision for […]

  • The Pangolin wallpaper selection takes flight

    Iain Farrell,

    For another cycle a selection of images has been put forward for inclusion in Ubuntu. As there have been some questions on other blogs about the process I thought it was worth doing a quick refresher. Each release we ask the community contributors whose images were included in the last release if they’d like to […]

  • Choosing, moving, wallpapers

    Iain Farrell,

    All the way back in January we kicked off the submissions process for the next released of Ubuntu. We did this using Flickr and since then the group has been inundated with over 2,700 submissions! This is an incredible achievement in a reasonably short time and many of the entries are looking great. Charline, on […]

    Iain Farrell,

    Just a quick update for those of you who are interested. As we speak the contributors whose images were selected…

  • Get your photos on millions of computers!

    Iain Farrell,

    It’s that time again! We’ve been accepting submissions on the Ubuntu Artwork Flickr group for a while now but with the deadline fast approaching for Beta we need to get together a shortlist and finalise the photo wallpapers that will be in the next Ubuntu release in October.
