 1. Only post Ubuntu related artwork, and keep it '''Family Friendly'''.
 2. Everything contributed must be offered with a '''free license'''. If your submission also contains another's work, make sure that its license is compatible with Ubuntu. __Please make sure that you have clearly stated a license and your preferred method of attribution.__
##Do we need an approved list of licenses?
##We suggest [http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ CC-SA]. Kwwii needs to talk to lawyers first
##Troy says CC-SA is incompatible with GPL due to scope.

 * ''The current development cycle of artwork is '''[[/Incoming/Jaunty|Jaunty Jackalope]].'''''  * The artwork for [[/Incoming/Jaunty|Jaunty Jackalope]] is pretty much a done deal, so you should direct your attention to [[/Incoming/Karmic|Karmic Koala]].

About the Artwork Team

The goal of the "Artwork Team" is to produce artwork for the community side of Ubuntu.

The Artwork Team aims to enrich Ubuntu by designing high quality, original and beautiful themes to be available in the repo as an *alternative* to the default look.

We tend to work in small groups on themes, so alongside people with a strong vision who can lead a team, we need plenty of others that can work together to help polish a great complete, cohesive look.

This involves designers, packagers and GTK+ & QT themeing experts, and we could certainly do with a few more hackers.

Projects

  • The artwork for Jaunty Jackalope is pretty much a done deal, so you should direct your attention to Karmic Koala.
