Let's Celebrate Community
Ubuntu Touch based on Ubuntu 16.04 is on its way! In celebration of the latest release approaching from over the horizon, we are hosting an Ubuntu Touch Cultural Showcase--a contest and celebration for the people who got us this far: you, the community.
The 16.04 Ubuntu Touch Showcase will gather the best creative works in our community and bring them to every Ubuntu Touch device near you. We're looking for images, notification tones, and ringtones that complement the Ubuntu Touch / Unity8 design and add to the "fresh" experience for users trying UT for the first time.
Winning submissions will be included in the Ubuntu Touch 16.04 install.
Who can participate?
You! Any community member.
What do I submit?
Works of art (wallpaper, audio, video) that celebrates free culture and the Ubuntu Touch community.
When should I submit my work
Now! The contest will run until July 30th, when the best submissions will be voted on for final inclusion.
