    I have decided to host a contest for the best logo for the Graphic Artists United™ website and thread. This is a contest that will be judged by various members of the GAU group. This graphic can be anything, as long as it it your own work, it can be hand drawn and scanned in or made in photoshop or whatever. The dimensions need to be 1200x200 pixels.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Prizes:
    1st Place - Crysis Warhead Brand New - Sealed In Box
    2nd Place - OEM copy of Far Cry 2
    3rd Place - $10 cash

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    RULES PLEASE READ!

    Heres a set of rules that I think are pretty fair.

    • Must be a TPU member who joined before May 15, 2009
    • Must be your original work, you may be prompted to prove originality
    • TechPowerUp Staff and Moderators will be allowed to participate
    • The contest is not limited to any geographic region.
    • Up to two submissions per user
    • Please submit only JPG file format images for initial review.
    • Have Fun

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I have been asked what should be in the logo. My answer is nothing specific, leave it up to your imagination, but just to have something to go off of, here is the website it will go on. It will be replacing the top banner under the website title, which will be removed.

    Official Graphic Artists United™ Website

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    This is the official place to submit your designs, so please do that: Graphic Artists United™ Logo Design Contest - Submision Thread

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Contest ends July 31, 2009

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    **CONTEST UPDATE**

    I am now requesting a 1200x200 pixel header instead of a 850x200 pixel header. For people who have already submitted the 850x200 version, thats great that will be used as well but I regret to inform you that you will need to make a 1200x200 version.

    Of course all new entrees do not need to make the 850x200 version.

    You will be judged on the 1200x200 pixel header.

    I am sorry for any inconveniences this may have caused

    The reason for this is, www.graphicartistsunited.com is going through servere rennovation and upgrade so the header dimensions are different.

    another newsflash: on the new website I will be able to change the color scheme

    Can you give some idea on what should be on the logo? Just the name Graphics Artists United and then whatever design you choose?

    Yes, I'm looking for 5 judges, and at least 3 of which being previous or current members of GAU. So far there is me, mussels and triprift, two of which are GAU members.

    @Trip and Mussels, if you decide to be judges, you cant enter a design.

    i'm no good at anything that doesnt have googly eyes.

    I did have a thought about the japanese flag, replacing the middle with the TPU power-button logo.

    @h3llb3nd4 - thanks for the submision, it looks great but to make things more organized I made a separate thread for submisions only, its in the OP, if you could post it there that's be great

    there are some additions to the OP, like we now have an upgraded first place prize as well as a second place prize (thanks to Jr)

    also I posted the link of the submision thread

    and I posted the link of the site so maybee you could make your design fit the website skin

    and finally the panel of judges is complete; SkyKast, JrRacinFan, Mussels, Triprift and Panchoman
