Vote in the Ubuntu 21.10 wallpaper competition


The time has come. It’s time to vote for the 10  images you would like included in the official Ubuntu 21.10 release as optional wallpapers. Submissions have closed. Thank you to everyone who has participated so far <3

Vote here

Brace yourself, there’s a lot. We have a total of 202 submissions, more than ever before! So set aside some time, take your time scrolling through and consider each image. Since they are quite small you may want to have the submission thread open side by side to look at the higher resolution, original versions, too. Each option is labeled numerically so you can find it by scrolling through the thread.

VOTE NOW

You don’t have long, voting closes at 9 AM UTC on the 27th of August. That’s less than a week away! So make sure you get your votes in and make sure you tell your friends, the time is now.  The 10 submissions with the most votes will be featured in various places where Ubuntu lives. The top TWO will make it into the official image. We will announce the winners on the same day during the Desktop Team Indaba and on Discourse on the 27th of August.

VOTE

We would like to apologise to the artists and photographers and designers who participated. Especially those with high resolution, beautifully detailed images. Google forms simply do not do them justice. Unfortunately, we couldn’t find a better platform to host the competition in the short amount of time we had to organise everything.

We hope to do better next time for 22.04, the big one, the LTS. If anyone out there knows of, or wants to develop, a platform that we could use next time to allows us to keep a 10 vote limit and display submissions in beautiful resolution, let us know. Send Monica, @madhens in discourse a message, or reply to this thread in discourse
