Peppermint Three Desktop Wallpaper Challenge

Peppermint Nation,

Hello to all from Peppermint Headquarters in the beautiful mountains of Western North Carolina. As many of you know we are getting geared up to release the next iteration of our operating system, Peppermint Three. We are in the final stages of development and now is the time where we need to seek talented artists to apply the finishing touches – We need a Default Desktop Wallpaper that is creative and eye-catching !!

We had some extremely talented art last year and we expect this year to be even more fierce of a competition. Pull out all the stops and let’s see what you’ve got. If you didn’t know it, last year one of the runners-up and nearly won the whole pie was a Photograph that was slightly modified and filtered.  It was a tough call… Always is

Alright. Today is the day to get started and here are the rules and technical yadda-yadda to get started. Let the games begin and good luck
