Who:  Anyone is elgible to submit their artwork for inclusion in Xubuntu. Hopefully, this will give a few people of the many who do outstanding art a chance to have that art viewed by possible millions worldwide. This must be your own artwork, free for sharing. Licensed under the GPL is fine.

What:  Xubuntu has need of several pieces of original artwork. The Wallpaper is the desktop background. It is very important, and needs to be displayed in seveal sizes, from 800x600 up to and including 1920x1440. 

When:  All items to be considered for Xubuntu should be submitted by 2010-08-19. This gives the developers time to approve the final artwork and add it to Maverick in time for Beta testing. 

Why:  Xubuntu is looking for a few good artwork pieces. These should be in a shade of blue or overall blue similar to what is used in the banner at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Xubuntu . Shade variations are allowed. This is an open call for artwork to be used by Xubuntu developers in the next release, currently called Xubuntu Maverick Meerkat, to be released as Xubuntu 10.10.

The new Xubuntu logo and branding are available for view/use at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Xubuntu/Artwork/Maverick . Logos used for artwork need to stay with the actual logo design. 

This is a tremendous opportunity for an artist to have work displayed for 18 months and viewed by millions of users world-wide. 

Additional information:
The Plymouth/boot splash screen should be a different image than the desktop background.

The GDM background can be different than the desktop or plymouth.

If you have a complete GTK theme package, please submit it also.

We will also accept for review and possible use, icons that are well designed and complete. 

While no promises are made to use the artwork submitted, all artwork will be reviewed and voted on. 

How:  Please submit your original artwork to https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Xubuntu/Artwork/Maverick or contact myself. Note that the email address below cannot accept large attachments or emails.
