I kinda like this years as well. It's just a nice simple and clean logo. I find that filmstrip one ('03-'05) to be a bit busy for my tastes. Just my feelings, though.
... yea ...

I actually like most if not all of them. They sort of grew on me over time, even if a couple of them I bitched about originally. :roll:

Then where is the stem? Or the rounded edges? That's no four leaf clover :P

Do you prefer submissions to have no identifying info on them, like the artist's name?

Also, should the preview image just contain the logo, or are extra elements okay?

User ids are already tracked with each entry and are visible to the contest coordinator.

The preview image should just be of the logo. (i.e. the image in the top left of the forum is an example of what the preview image looked like for the current logo back when it ran in the contest last year.)

Advice: it may be in your best interest to submit early, as that gives you time to resubmit if there's something wrong with your entry.

And whoever does make the logo this year, could you at least do a decent quality / vector trace of it instead of a random picture of a flower from images.google.com that you've then just layered under a font?

If a raster image wins this year, we might ask the artist if he/she can vector trace it anyway, depending on the need and the image complexity...


I too am still a fan of the good ole see-note. The flimstrip logo was great, but I think its complexity (which made it more awkward to adapt to smaller resolutions and banners) might have caused a backlash and preference towards simpler designs in later years.

Yea, the trick is that people need to remember that the logo isn't just single-purpose, and while I think it's great that people have been designing logos that look good in small format on banners, it's nice if they don't forget other places where it might need to be bigger. Like the forum logo. One reason I liked the film strip is that it looked good on top of the forums!

Will the approved logos be visible even before July 22nd on nominations page or will they appear after the start of nominating?

A reminder: your logo can contain any of the following text:

AnimeMusicVideos.org
Anime Music Videos
A-M-V.org
AMV

Contrary to popular belief, you don't have to have a "AnimeMusicVideos.org" + "AMV" combo. Just throwing that out there. :P

Just curious, if it's not breaking any rules (and thus can be made known)...

How many submissions have you received so far and how many of them were accepted?

33 attempted entries so far
24 have been accepted

Remember that I'm not approving/rejecting on the basis of quality. As long as an entry doesn't break one of the rules, it gets put through. For the ones that I reject, I always encourage the members to resubmit with the disqualifying element corrected.


Two more weeks to enter! If you haven't thought about your entry yet, now's the time to start. If you have friends who are good with graphics, then badger them to enter. This is your chance to help out and make a lasting impression on this website! :o
