KDE Visual Design Group/Plasma 5.16 Wallpaper Competition

Jump to: navigation, search

Submit your designs to the subforum we have set up for the competition.

Check out these instructions first!

Rules

  1. The design of your wallpaper must be original and created specifically for the contest
  2. The design of your wallpaper must be released to KDE under a copyleft license (CC By, CC By-SA), or released into the public domain or equivalent (CC0)
  3. Even if your work is not picked as the default wallpaper, your submission may still be included in Plasma 5.16 or used with future releases
  4. You can submit up to 3 entries
  5. Image files must be in PNG format, preferably accompanied by the source files in a non-proprietary format (Inkscape-compatible SVG, blend, kra, xfc, etc.)
  6. The minimum size for your submission must be 4K (3840x2160), although 5K (5120x2880) is preferred. Optionally, a phone-sized (1080x2280) wallpaper for Plasma Mobile can also be submitted
  7. Do not add the Plasma version number into your wallpaper. Any logos or text, such as the (Plasma logo) should be tastefully integrated into the design of the wallpaper itself, not just added on top as text
  8. A jury made up of members of KDE's Visual Design Group (VDG) and other KDE community members will decide the winner. There will be only one winning wallpaper and the decision of the jury is final
  9. The organisers will disqualify and erase any entry that is racist, sexist, demeaning or inappropriate in any way. Disqualifications and deletions are final and cannot be recurred
  10. The deadline for submissions is midnight (UTC) on 29/05/2019

Prize

Our friends at Slimbook have kindly donated a Slimbook One v2 as a prize for the winning participant. The One v2 is an eco-friendly, compact machine, measuring only 12.4 x 12.8 x 3.7 cm. It comes with an i5 processor, 8 GB of RAM, and is capable of outputting video in glorious 4K. Naturally, your One will come decked out with the upcoming KDE Plasma 5.16 desktop, your spectacular wallpaper, and a bunch of great software made by KDE.
