Logo Design Love Awards now open

logo design love awards header

The Logo Design Love Awards are now open for submission.

The aim of the awards is to give some well deserved exposure to lesser-known graphic designers, and to uncover the most effective blog logos amongst todays popular blogs.

It’s completely free to enter, or to submit an entry on behalf of a blog you think should win. The only requirement is that entrants must have their logo displayed on their blog header between February and April 2008.

There’ll be 10 heats, each from a different blog category (shown below), and the 10 winners will advance into the final.

Blog categories

Update: all categories have been published, and are hyperlinked.

The winning logo designs will be chosen by a distinguished panel of judges, who between them, have a wealth of industry experience.

Judging panel

A big thanks to each of the judges who are kindly donating their valuable time simply because they too, have the logo design love.

How to enter

Simply leave a comment with the name and web address of the blog, and the category into which you think it belongs. Alternatively, send me an email or complete the contact form.

If possible, mention the logo designer responsible for the design. Otherwise I’ll do what I can to find out their name and thought process.

DEADLINE for entry: 01 March 2008

The first category of logo designs will be published soon after the March deadline.

How the winners will be decided

A maximum of 20 logo submissions from each category will be featured on this website, with information about the blog and the blog’s logo designer. If more than 20 logos are submitted for one category, I will choose what I believe to be the most effective for inclusion. This is to place a cap on the judging time, which as mentioned, has been kindly donated.

Once all of the 10 categories have been published, the judges will award points to their favourite three logos from each (3 points for the most effective, 2 points, and finally 1). The logo with the most points in each blog category will advance to a final round, and again, the judges will score the designs to decide on the overall winner.

As well as an outright winner decided by the judges, you are also invited to vote by leaving comments on the individual category posts. There’ll be an additional Logo Design Love Readers Award, and both winners (if different) will receive a special design feature of their own.

I look forward to promoting your individual entries, and I hope you enjoy viewing the logo design selection.

    I designed it myself, and I just finished it today. This is really the first logo I’ve ever made… And it shows, lol. But hey, it doesn’t hurt to give it a shot, right?

    Thanks so much for starting this contest. It inspired me to try making a logo, and I had a lot of fun!

    In another life many years ago I was a Graphic Designer and like riding a bicycle, some skills you never forget:)
    Thus I designed this logo myself for the OnDemandBeat blog…the logo was meant to emphasize the On in OnDemand Beat while at the same time creating a great favicon.
