Mageia needs your help with the artwork for Mageia 2.
We’re short on artists, so we’re calling on everyone in the Mageia community who has any talent with graphics.
If you would like to see your favorite photo in Mageia as an alternative background, or if you can make an outstanding graphic that fits into Mageia’s look and feel, we hope you’ll support us: contribute your work to Mageia and to the Mageia community as a whole.
How to participate?
Mageia will provide 1 official background and 10 additional backgrounds to complete the official design. If you’d like to participate, it’s easy:
- Send your images and/or pictures to http://www.flickr.com/groups/mageia-artwork/ until March 1st 2012.
- Mageia will choose one for the official background, plus 10 others from different contributors to be included in the “additional backgrounds” package
- If one of your contributions is chosen to be the official background or the best alternative background, you’ll receive a Mageia goodies pack with a Mageia t-shirt, Mageia stickers and a Live CD.
- Technical prerequisites:
- minimal size: 1920×1440
- no border
- no text inside
- scalable for all possible screen resolutions: 4:3, 16:9, 16:10 etc.

- Image content:
- for official background: a graphical image (no photo)
- for additional backgrounds: a photo, and only a photo (not graphic design)
- e.g. a landscape, some nature phenomenon,…
- no recognizable people
- no copyrighted artwork
- you must own the copyright on the photo
- your image will be used as a background, so it should interact well with desktop elements such as shortcuts, icons, text etc.
The final winners will be chosen by the Mageia council and announced on the Mageia blog.
Don’t forget that the two people sending us the winning backgrounds (the one that is going to be the official background, and the one sending the best alternate one) will receive prizes:
t-shirts, stickers and Live CDs!
