Introducing the extra wallpapers for Fedora 24

In the Fedora 24 alpha release, you could preview an early version of the default wallpaper for Fedora 24. Each release, the Fedora Design team collaborates with the Fedora community to release a set of 16 additional backgrounds to install and use on Fedora. The Fedora Design team takes submissions from the wider community, then votes on the top 16 to include in the next release.

Voting is now closed on the supplemental wallpapers for Fedora 24. The results are available for all to see on the wallpaper voting app. In the Fedora 24 cycle, the Fedora Design team received 133 valid submissions from many existing and new contributors to supplemental wallpapers.

Take a look at Fedora 24 wallpapers

Out of the 133 submissions, the following 16 wallpapers were chosen for inclusion in Fedora 24:

  1. One second, I like these. Yes, I do like these.

    • antikythera

      indeed, nice selection, well done folks. it was tough choosing this year however a few of my choices made the final 16 so I’m happy to see them there.

  2. Mclong

    Very nice selection. Looking forward to using them with Fedora 24.

    That zen rock garden might shift me away from fractals for a while. They’re all superb though, nice range of themes.

  4. Beautiful selection! So many great pictures, I could pick more than 16. My submission ended up being in 17th place, I’ll try again for Fedora 25 🙂

    • antikythera

      It’s a shame you missed by one spot. I’ve downloaded a few more that won’t be packaged up including yours because I prefer landscape type shots. it’s a great image so please do try again next time round. One of mine didn’t quite make the grade either (submitted as arehtykitna). It’s fantastic to be so spoilt for choice with image submissions though so I don’t mind 😀

    • yeah, nice to hear you will try again. As you can see I had yours amongst my favorites in the communityblog article.

  5. Congrats to all the winners…..

    And a very good final collection ….. Eagerly waiting for the Fedora 24 Release..:-)

  6. I made it through on my first submission, hahahahahahahaha. I was worried on how the user may find it when using desktop icons with text font as white, but this proves it nobody uses desktop icons.

    • antikythera

      well done, it’s easy enough to change icon text colour anyhow 😉

    • Congratulations. There is a little bit luck in the game (unfortunately), as many of the voters have not that many experience in design, they just choose what they like out of their belly. In your case the nice glacier, which is bluish a big plus for many voters 😉

      I hope you contributing next time to, even you could have not luck again

  7. Very nice! Looking forward to use the Aurora one on my machine.

    Super. Loving the nature shots.
