Fedora 26 Supplementary Wallpapers: Vote now!

At the end of January, the submission phase for Fedora 26 Supplementary Wallpapers opened. Now, the submission phase is closed and the voting phase is now open. If you have a FAS account and meet the CLA+1 group requirement, you can cast your vote in Nuancier.

Wallpapers for Fedora 26

We have again around 100 submissions from more then 60 different contributors, from which we will choose 16 to get packaged as supplemental wallpapers for Fedora 26. The contributors who successfully submitted their wallpaper should all now have the badge.  In case your badge was not awarded, ping gnokii in #fedora-design on freenode.

As for past contests, a lot of the participants made their first contribution to Fedora. We will continue to improve Nuancier and the submission process for supplementary wallpapers. We will also try to improve the quality of submissions. We have already improved with limiting the amount of submissions. We have also had longer phases for submissions and the time for the voting is also longer than before.

Be sure to cast your vote before April 6th, 2017 to have a say in what wallpapers are included! By participating, you can also receive a limited edition badge too. Please note, this badge must be claimed manually from you during the voting process, it is not automatically awarded. It can be not awarded afterwards, as it is not visible who has voted.
