Be Part of Shaping Kubuntu’s Future and Stand a Chance to Win Exciting Prizes

The Kubuntu and Kubuntu Focus teams unveiled the Kubuntu Graphic Design Contest today, in a bid to engage skilled graphic designers in molding the direction of the KDE-centric distribution, with the chance to win some fantastic prizes.

The Kubuntu Graphic Design Contest represents a coordinated endeavor between Kubuntu Focus, a Linux hardware dealer, and the development team behind Kubuntu Linux. Their aim is to rejuvenate the Kubuntu brand/artwork, which comprises elements such as the logo, fonts, color scheme, and the default desktop outlook, in preparation for the imminent Kubuntu 24.04 LTS launch.

“We’re on the lookout for inventive designs that echo the core nature of Kubuntu while striking a chord with both regular users and newcomers,” declared Rick Timmis. “Through this competition, we are inviting able designers to take on a vital role in determining the next incarnation of the Kubuntu brand. It’s your opportunity to engrave a lasting impression on one of the most popular Linux distributions worldwide.”

The Kubuntu Graphic Design Contest has started accepting submissions and will continue to do so until 31st March 2024. Graphic designers from all walks of life are encouraged to manifest their vision for the future of Kubuntu. The top prize for the contest is a Kubuntu powered computer, either the Kubuntu Focus Ir14 laptop or the Kubuntu Focus NX MiniPC complete with 32 GB RAM.

But there’s not only one winner, as the Kubuntu team will also award the second and third places in the contest, who will win Kubuntu Focus branded merchandise of up to $50 USD shipped, a trophy, and a certificate. In addition, the second prize winner will also get a runner-up entry featured on the kubuntu.org website.

And, of course, winners will have the honor of seeing their designs on the desktops of the millions of Kubuntu/Ubuntu users using the KDE Plasma desktop environment. Even better, the contest allows for multiple entries from the same designer, allowing them to showcase their creativity.

Kubuntu 24.04 LTS will launch officially on April 25th, 2024, as part of the Noble Numbat (Ubuntu 24.04 LTS) operating system series. It will ship with the KDE Plasma 5.27 LTS desktop environment series and adopt the Calamares universal installer as the default graphical installer.

More details about the Kubuntu Graphic Design Contest can be found in the official announcement.
