Update: the rules and submission pages are now available!
Thanks to Corran and derobert for setting up the code. :)

2008 Logo Contest
Last day to submit: July 20th


Yes, we are still having the contest this year! Just so everybody knows, from now on we'll be running the logo contest in July in order to avoid hitting burnout from the VCAs. :nose:

Everything that you need to know is on the rules page. Read through it carefully before submitting your files. For quick reference, here are the important dates:

1. Logo Submissions will close: July 21st, 2008
2. Nominations Begin: July 22nd, 2008
3. Nominations End: July 28th, 2008
4. Final Voting Begins: July 28th, 2008
5. Final Voting Ends: August 4th, 2008
6. Winner Announced: August 4th, 2008

Deadlines are cut at midnight, which means 12:00AM (EST, I think), not 11:59PM. Corran has included useful server clocks on the submission and voting pages in case anybody gets confused.

We hope to see some good entries this year. Thanks and good luck!

I could make a great logo using Adobe Illustrator CS3. Only I don't have that program, I've only used it on the computers at school.

You'd have to get the person who made it to submit it. :P

Nah, there's never really been any theme besides "something that represents the site in a positive manner."

I think it would be a nice idea to announce this contest with a main site news entry.

I hope that when the voting time comes there's some secrecy about who made which banner.. Don't want this to turn into a popularity contest do we?

I was hoping voting would be along the lines of how we vote for worthy banners. Seemed more appropriate for this than doing like the VCA or something. (I don't know how it's been done in the past...this'll be the first time I've been here for a logo contest.)

Unless something's changed from previous years, it's anonymous.

No worries, Corran made sure to put in code that would make entries anonymous to participants and voters.

Okay!
Also, is there a way to get a hold of the previous logos (the one that's still being used aside) to get a general idea of how the winning logos have been in the past?
