In mintCast episode 28 we talked about a wallpaper challenge. Here are the rules for that challenge:

Please submit the wallpaper(s) in widescreen 2560×1600 or full screen 1600×1200 resolutions. File formats accepted will be bmp, jpg, png. There is no limit to how many wallpapers you can submit, but please keep the wallpapers clean of any nudity, offensive language, violence, etc.
