Launch of a new contest for Mandriva Linux 2010.2 wallpaper

From: Mandriva Blog


With the Mandriva Linux 2010.0 and 2010.1 releases, we have carried out the Desktop Background contest which has resulted in hundreds of awesome submissions from all around the world. It was amazing to see the contributions of Mandriva users and communities, and the selected background pictures were a brilliant addition to the distribution.

So, as it was mentioned on forums and messages to us, it would be unfair from us to skip this possibility for the Mandriva Linux 2010.2 release. We apologize for not announcing it earlier, but – better later then never!

So with this in mind, we announce a new round of Mandriva background competition, for Mandriva Linux 2010.2 version. As always, you can submit your contributions via the flickr web site at
and vote for the pictures you prefer.

This time, you can choose the picture YOU love the most, and the ones you want to see in Mandriva Linux 2010.2 release. This is how the pictures will be selected : the first 10 pictures with the most ‘Favorites’ will be selected to become part of Mandriva Linux backgrounds collection for Mandriva Linux 2010.2 version.

As for the rules, they stay the same as for the previous competitions :

1. Send and vote for the pictures until 16th of December 2010 on Mandriva 2010 backgrounds contribution Flickr website :
2. The 10 most voted pictures – with base on number of favorites – will be selected to be included in an additional backgrounds package
3. If one of your picture is chosen, you will get a free access to a Mandriva Linux Powerpack edition.
