Hey all

We'll welcome non photographic wallpapers just like we did in the last 
release although I'm not convinced that the Prateek's example is the way 
to go, not least because it doesn't feature the proper Circle of friends 
or logo type but also because it's adorned with Adidas logos and was 
clearly created as part of another campaign :)

A wallpaper should try to be clean, simple and elegant. Someone's going 
to look at it for a long time. If no one's going to step forward then 
I'll happily run the process again. Let me know and we can get a blog 
post out this week to kick things off!
