Canonical conducts a contest for every release which relies on users submissions. This contest is used to determine which wallpapers are going to appear in the coming release. Ubuntu13.04 is scheduled to be released soon on April 25th, but you can get the wallpapers early if you want them.
Ubuntu 13.04 Default Wallpapers
It sounds like a glorious Spartan victory. Three hundred go into battle, but this time 13 survive. The final 13 winning wallpapers are now available to download.
Primary Desktop Wallpaper
The main desktop wallpaper displayed after installing Ubuntu 13.04, is really not very exciting. It is basically the same wallpaper from 12.10, only flipped upside down. But for those users that want a closer look, we produced a comparison of default wallpapers from 12.04 to 13.04.
Ubuntu 13.04 Favorite Wallpapers
Now here are some of my favorites from the winning Ubuntu 13.04 wallpapers.
Meet The Ringtail
It is difficult to find words that will accurately describe this furry little beast, but it sure is cute. With that said, I think I want one for a pet, but I’ll have to settle for a wallpaper.
Here is a beautiful scenery wallpaper that shows the perfect vacation getaway. A fantastic blend of colors and chem-trails.
Stop The Light
I don’t know what this is, but it looks like something you might come across while diving on a flourishing coral reef. Or perhaps a fiber-optic light show.
It looks damn cold to me, but it sure is serene. Another monument to high quality photography.
