Ubuntu Free Culture Showcase
The Ubuntu Free Culture Showcase is an opportunity to show off high quality free culture content in Ubuntu. At the heart of Ubuntu's ethos is a belief in showcasing free software and free culture, and with each development cycle we open the opportunity for any artist to put their work in front of millions of Ubuntu users around the world.
What is Free Culture?
The free culture movement is a social movement that promotes the freedom to distribute and modify creative works in the form of free content. Our aim is to promote a culture of creativity and sharing which is embodied by Ubuntu and the open source software available for it.
The Ubuntu Free Culture Showcase will include photographic wallpapers, illustrative wallpapers, music and video contributions. The creative brief is open but all submissions must follow the Ubuntu Code of Conduct (That means no nudity, swearing or anything that would upset your Mum!).
Budding directors, animators and performers can make video submissions on the Ubuntu Free Culture group on Vimeo. For more information see Ubuntu Free Culture Showcase group on Vimeo.
Want to make beautiful music together? Audio submissions can be made via Soundcloud. Join our Soundcloud group here.
We will accept submissions that use the Creative Commons Zero waiver.
- The submission must be submitted by the author of the work.
All submissions must follow the Ubuntu code of conduct
