Submit your designs to ... [LINK TO FORUM POST GOES HERE]


  1. The design must be original and created specifically for the contest
  2. The design must be released to KDE under a copyleft license (CC By, CC By-SA), or 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 with Plasma's 5.16 or future releases
  4. You can submit up to 3 entries
  5. Image files must be PNG and preferably be accompanied by the source files in a non-proprietary format (Inkscape compatible SVG, blend, kra, xfc, etc.)
  6. The minimum size for your submission is 4K (3840x2160), although 5K (5120x2880) is preferred
  7. A jury made up of members of KDE's Visual Design Group (VDG) and other KDE members will decide the winner. The decision of the jury is final
  8. 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.
  9. Deadline for submissions is midnight (UTC) 29/05/2019


Slimbook has stepped up and is offering a Slimbook One as a prize. The Slimbook will be shipped after the release of Plasma 5.16, so that it will arrive with the latest version of Plasma, including the winning wallpaper.

Help and Feedback

You can ask the VDG for help and feedback any time during the competition! Just join the #kde-vdg channel on Matrix or the freenode IRC channel (which is bridged to the VDG Telegram room, if you prefer Telegram).
