Debian announces "Wheezy" artwork contest
The Debian Project has announced the launch of a new artwork contest for version 7.0 of its Linux distribution, code-named "Wheezy". The project's developers are seeking proposals from contributors for a variety of graphics and other artwork that will make up the look and feel of the next Debian operating system release.
Suggested concepts for theme submissions include "Blue Debian" and "Debian Universal", as well as "Night" and "Space". Graphics required for these include Boot Screen Images, artwork for the Debian Installer and a Desktop Wallpaper. However, users are not required to have all of these parts to make their submission – should an incomplete submission be selected, the submitter will be asked to add any missing components. Existing proposals are available online on the DebianArt/Themes page.
Further information about the contest, including a list of requirements, can be found on the Artwork for Wheezy wiki page. Those with questions are asked to post them to the debian-desktop mailing list. The current stable release is Debian 6.0.4.
