Bug Description

The wallpapers in Ubuntu come from the Ubuntu Wallpaper contest:


There are 27 shortlisted entries and a selection of those have been chosen. There are two types of image, most are photographic (JPGs) with a small number of non photographic images (PNGs).

  1. Publish the list of winning entries on design.canonical.com
  2. All images are CC-BY-SA which is a criteria for inclusion and this was a stated requirement of submission. Contributors have been asked to update the relevant metadata on Flickr
  3. Scale all the images to the same 2000px width and corresponding height to maintain aspect ratio. If in doubt this should be done from the centre.
  4. I understand that compression is managed when it's packaged so if it's oversize we can recompress/ reduce the number of images. For reference our current wallpapers are around 4mb and we anticipate this will be about the same size.
  5. Upload to main

Note that it is not possible to directly download the images from the shortlist group because not all members have Flickr Pro accounts. I have sourced all the images we need and will attach them here.

The format of the filenames references the artist and I have named the file using the existing convention of Image_name_by_Artist_Name.jpg/.png

I guess this wasn't actually officially announced in the Design blog. Oops, maybe next time.

jbicha: You're correct that there wasn't a post, but it's a good idea and we could still put something together. Do you have suggestions for any particular questions you'd like included in a blog? Would you like to see a gallery of all of the ones that were uploaded; or perhaps just the default one? If you can suggest a skeleton of what you'd really like to see I'm sure we can write something around it and find a suitable time to post it between now and UDS.
