Wallpaper Challenges

DeviantArt has teamed up with LG to bring you Devious Desktops community wallpaper challenges all summer long! These challenges will be opportunities for you to create original desktop wallpaper deviations for the chance to win a brand new LG UltraFine™ 4K Display.

Share Some Warm Vibes

The first challenge is Warm Vibes. Summer is here and we at DeviantArt wish we were outside to enjoy it! But since we're stuck in the office, we're asking you to bring summer to our desktops!

Your challenge is to create a 16:9 3840×2160 4K wallpaper that makes us feel like we're soaking up some rays in the sunny haze of a summer day.

Judging will be done by DeviantArt Staff and Community Volunteers based on Originality, Quality of Execution and Conveyance of Theme.
