The wallpaper competition winners
Remember the [wallpaper competition](http://blogs.skype.com/sites/en/2006/12/design_a_skype_wallpaper.html)? We invited everyone to send us their wallpaper designs for using in Skype to celebrate the launch of Skype 3.0 for Windows.
We received a good selection of entries. As said previously, the three winners will each receive a [USB Internet Mini Phone](http://www.usr-emea.com/products/p-voip-product.asp?prod=voip-9602&loc=unkg) from our friends at [US Robotics](http://www.usr.com/). We contact the winners personally to sort out the details.
Here’s how we did the judging, before the finally get to the winners. Many people simply sent us “pretty pictures”. This wasn’t enough, as the submission had to be actually usable and functional as a wallpaper in Skype, with no visible cut edges with normal Skype window sizes or anything like that.
So, here we go… we also invented our own names to the submissions based on the initial impression of their looks. When downloading them from Flickr, be sure to download the original size.
