In a couple of weeks, I will need to deliver yet another default wallpaper for KDE's 4.8-49 desktop editions.So my brain wile starting to go in to “crazy” mode to try to find that specif edge, design pattern, blue, that will make me happy and hopefully our users happy as well... decided to have a look at what we have done over that 4.x series and, I saw a pattern alright.
The most common element in all of them is.... some guy named Nuno...This must stop NOW!!.... Please help-me....but how??
So I had this idea.... what if some one else can create something better???
We are starting a contest to be ended 4 of December to create a new default wallpaper for 4.8-4.9.
The rules.....Send it to email@example.com subject wallpaper2011 (please use this)
The license for the chosen ones will be LGPL In case they are not selected, they will remain sole property of its creator (I will not publish them).
Minimum size is 1920x1200Bonus points for creating other screen ratios.
Photos are accepted.
Must have a defining element that can be used in kde branding (very important)
Jury, composed by me, Lydia Pintscher, and Ingo Malchow.
Prize..... Having your work used by millions (or close to that :) ). Not having yet another Nuno's wallpaper in your desktop.
Results will be visible in next KDE release, winners will be informed as soon as we know :)
We will chose up to 3 wallpapers only one will be default.
Some side notes..... KDE core branding values, revolve around Elegance, Freedom, and ease of use, we would love to see that in the default wallpaper.
Have fun :)
