It’s about time we kicked off the wallpaper competition for 19.04 the Disco Dingo
This time around we’d like to try something a bit different which will hopefully make it easier to enter your pictures, give a wider section of the community a say in which wallpapers are selected, and generate a bit more buzz.
Here’s how we’d like it to work:
To enter, simply post your image in to this thread.
We will close this thread towards the beginning of March (exact date TBD, and depends on how many entries we get) when the competition for 19.04 will close and the judging will begin. There will be a poll for the community to vote for their favourites. There will also be a judging panel made up of community contributors, developers and other Ubuntu supporters. Exact names TBC.
There are a few rules though. Please make sure you are happy to submit your work under these rules before you post it. Posting your images here indicates acceptance of the rules.
The images you upload must be yours. If you see an image which you know to be misrepresented please flag it and we will take care of it.
You don’t have to upload the full size image to the hub. In fact, if might be easier if you don’t since this thread will become very slow to load. We will need an image of ideally 3840x2160 px for the final submission, but we can get that from you later on if your image is selected. For now, limit your images a bit to try and keep the file size down.
As mentioned above, the final image size needs to be 3840x2160 px. Images much smaller than this won’t scale up well. Equally images with a lot of compression artifacts won’t look good. Your image won’t be accepted if the quality is low.
All watermarks, names, logos, etc must be removed.
Your image(s) must licenced under the CC BY-SA 4.0 or CC BY 4.0 licence. If you do not specify a licence in your post then we will assume that you are are licensing the image under the CC BY-SA 4.0. By entering the competition you are agreeing to these licence terms.

I’d like to have a “best of” for the next LTS, so winners from Disco (19.04), E (19.10) and F itself will all appear on 20.04 LTS.
