With the KDE 4.8 releases drawing near, it's time to change the look of the default desktop. Every two major releases, the main wallpaper of the Plasma Workspaces changes to maintain a fresh style.
This time, artist and Oxygen Master Nuno Pinheiro (creator of most of the previous wallpapers) is asking the KDE community for a new wallpaper by starting a contest. Submissions will be accepted until December 4th. A jury of Nuno and KDE Community Working Group members Ingo "neverendingo" Malchow and Lydia "Nightrose" Pintscher will evaluate the proposals. Up to three submissions will be selected. The judges' favorite will be used as the default wallpaper.
If you are up to the challenge and want to have your work displayed on one of the largest Free desktops, this is your chance. Send in your work!
Send your entry to [email protected] using "wallpaper2011" as subject line (mandatory) by 4 December.
- Minimum wallpaper size is 1920x1200 (additional resolutions and aspect ratios preferred).
- The license for the chosen wallpaper(s) needs to be LGPL.
- Photos are accepted.

- Winners will be notified when a decision is made
