Well we either have to go with all submitted that meet the "technical 
requirements" wallpapers then or we dont..

As nicu pointed out when I discussed it a little bit with him today on irc
that for example, who would be in that committee?

Everyone on this list would want to contribute....

First I would say we need a subject or a theme or something to focus on 
for this months
photo/art project. It would gives something to focus on instead of 
trying our selfs to come up with something.

Second it should be taken ( the photo ) or created during a certain time 
period that again would put art lovers to create
up with create something new( instead of going into archives ).

Third it needs to be categorized for example.

In the photo contest we have at work you are only allowed to enter 
photos that  has not been altered in any way other  than
you may have "enhanced" colouring on the raw output of the photo, no 
photoshop-ing or gimp-ing allowed.

Then we have another category you can alter the original image as you 
see fit through photoshop or gimp or other image editing program.
you can add others like  the people that can create this stuff from 
scratch ( I know I cant ) as in drawings, water paints oil paints 3d and 
so fourth.
