I created a Flickr account so that I could submit some of my more “artsy” photos to the Ubuntu Artwork pool. In order to qualify for the pool, all photos must be licensed as CC-BY-SA or CC-BY, and all my photos are licensed CC-BY. Ubuntu developers will be choosing photos from the pool to be included with the default Ubuntu 10.04 operating system, due for release in April 2010. This is a chance for my work to be seen by millions of people around the world. Here are my submissions:
It was slightly annoying to have to register for a Flickr account because I’m a Picasa user, and I would rather just use them to host my photos. However, developers wanted to limit barriers for photographers to submit their work, and Flickr was the easiest way to to accomplish that.
If you’d like to get your work seen by millions of people, submit it to the Ubuntu Artwork pool under a CC-BY-SA or CC-BY license. Maybe your wallpaper will be distributed with the best free operating system available, Ubuntu.
