With the release of KDE Plasma 6 closing in, a Wallpaper Competition is live and the prize is pretty awesome - you can win a Framework Laptop 13 DIY Edition!
That's quite an awesome prize, so no doubt competition will be hot. Heck, even I'm tempted to enter for that, I would absolutely love one of those Framework Laptops. Framework themselves donated the prize too, so it's nice to see support from a hardware vendor like that.
There's a number of rules for entries:
- The wallpaper must be original, created specifically for this contest, and released under the CC-BY-SA-4.0 license. Therefore no submissions using AI art will be accepted.
- The minimum required size for wallpapers is 3840x2160, though 5120x2880 is preferred. Vertical wallpapers should be at least 1080x2280.
- You are allowed to submit up to 3 wallpapers. Entries can be made in public at in this Discuss category 15, but you can also submit them in private to [email protected]
- Each submission should include the following:
- The wallpaper
- The name of the wallpaper
- A dark mode version of the wallpaper (not mandatory, but recommended)
- A vertical version of the wallpaper (not mandatory, but recommended)
- If asked, you should be able to provide the source files used to create the wallpaper in a non-proprietary format, like an Inkscape-compatible SVG, .blend, .kra, .xcf, etc.
- Any submission containing racist, sexist, demeaning, or any other inappropriate content will be removed and disqualified immediately.
The contest is open for the next three months, so you have plenty of time to try out some designs.
