This page collects artwork proposals for Debian GNU/Linux. For more information see

Dear artists,

the artwork contest has been decided on June, 21st 2012. See this mail to learn more. Congratulations go to Adrien Aubourg whose excellent artwork "Joy" has been chosen to be the official theme in Debian GNU/Linux 7!

Thanks for all your contributions. As Paul Tagliamonte, responsible for the desktop-base package put it: "I'd like to thank everyone who submited artwork, and express how impressed I am with the artistic talent we have in Debian."

At the moment some of us are working on "Debian Theme Packages" to make it possible to easily get additional artwork themes into Debian. So the work of the other artists may still be of practical use for our community and our users. Please look here to see a first prototype. If you like to be included in one of these future packages, please mail to the Debian Desktop list.

Thanks again!
