HeliOS Seeks Official Wallpaper

In the six years The HeliOS Project has been in business, we've applied various and sundry wallpapers to our outgoing computers.  Some, we've just picked stock work from what is already available, some we've found on the Interwebz, and I've even tried my hand at creating an "official" wallpaper for our machines.

Think six year old with dull crayons when you envision my renderings.

That being said, we are hosting a contest and asking our readers to submit their work for consideration as the wallpaper that will go out on our HeliOS machines.

I tend to like the reflective, glossy type stuff.  If I've learned anything, first impressions make a huge difference and if we can get the "ooowwhhhh, shiny" reaction, then we've captured the attention we are looking for.

The only requirement is that our logo is prominent on the submission.  You can add any other graphic you wish.  Of course, the wallpaper must be distro agnostic and designed with the knowledge that children will see your work constantly.

Please feel free to sign your name to your work...we will retain it on every use.

Prizes?  We're not sure yet.  There will only be one as we don't have that much to offer but it may range anywhere from an older small shuttle PC to a repaired laptop of dubious origin and quality.  If nothing else, it will be something to hack on.

You can get our official logo here in svg format.  Make sure to right click the link and choose "save link as".  Everything else is left up to your imagination.  If the svg doesn't seem to render in Firefox with the chrome ring, open it in Blender.

You can send your 1280X1024 submissions to helios at fixedbylinux dott kommm or upload them to a place of your own  choosing and send me a link.  You may enter as many as you like.

And once again....thanks for helping us do what we do.

All-Righty Then
