It looks like the desktop team has selected the artwork (including wallpaper and GDM theme) for the upcoming Debian 6.0 release.
The winner of the small contest is SpaceFun by Valessio Brito. Included below is the splash screen, click here to see all the pictures.
The other options in the poll were Nightly, Ciel and Lisp Machine. Thanks to the artists who participated in this contest!
But the work is not over yet: while the artwork has been selected, it still needs to be integrated in the system. If you feel like helping by creating a theme for a display manager (GDM/KDM/SLIM) or for the Grub boot loader, please drop a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org (subscribe here).
