Just two more questions:

Do we have to submite 2 files of the same logo?
One on "gif" and the other in a zip file?

We can submite as many logos as we want... right?

Hey,

Looks like three to me. ;-)

EXODO wrote:Do we have to submite 2 files of the same logo?

Yes. The first file should be an example image of the final logo. The other file should be the source material used to make the final logo.

EXODO wrote:One on "gif" and the other in a zip file?

The example image can be gif or jpeg. The source material file can be zip or rar or tar or any other commonly used compressed archive.

EXODO wrote:We can submite as many logos as we want... right?

Yes, you may submit as many as you like. The logos should be different in design from each other. This means that if they were black-and-white, they should look different. Color variations do not count as a new entry.

I hope this helps.

Hey,

Images really can't come out of the air. Something must have been used to create the image. The source material is the editable file that was generated by whatever was used. Generally this is the Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop, or other graphic editing program source file. The resulting gif or jpeg image is a renedered version of the source material.

I hope this helps.

Hey,

Here are the previous years' logos:

2001: Image

2002: ImageImage

2003-2004: Image

The 2002 logo had two parts: the logo text and the "see note".

Do you happen to have the logo from before that? I'd like to make some sort of a tribute logo (And that idea is hereby copyrighted me)

Anyway - how's the code coming? can you give us an estimate date when it's done?

I believe he is asking for any logos propr to those Phade posted.

Now I'm not 100% sure Gen, but I do believe those are the only logos there have been. The top one is the first I ever remember seeing. Of course I've only been a member since 2001, so anything before that I have no idea about.

You can't copyright ideas. You need to quickly run down to the patent office, where Einstein will knock you out and steal your idea (really! I saw it on TV! And it wasn't CBS! It must be true!)
