A Few More Weeks to Earn Some Logo Love

golden_guy.jpgSo you think you can design logos. No, that’s not the title of a new FOX reality competition show (unfortunately), it’s our way of taunting you to enter the first annual mediabistro.com logo awards contest. What’s in it for you? Fame and fortune, of course. “With a large network of sites that generate more than five million visitors monthly, we can reach many employers and clients,” says Ivan Raszl, editor of Brands of the World and the brains behind the logo lauding initiative. “So participating in the mediabistro.com logo awards can convert to employment offers or freelance work.” It’s as easy as registering here, uploading a .jpeg of your best work, and then waiting for judges including Armin Vit and David Airey to deem you worthy of one of the gold, silver, or bronze awards. (An entry fee of $30 per logo is required.) Raszl advises including a short description of the original design brief and how you addressed it. “Context is very important for the judges to evaluate the logo,” he tells us. All submissions must have been created by the designer or firm submitting the work between March 31, 2008 and March 31, 2010. By popular demand, the deadline for entries has been extended—to Friday, April 30.
