For all you artistic types out there: one thing I'm not overwhelmingly happy about with 4.0 is the logo. It's good, but it lacks that certain something.

With that in mind, we're having a contest: design a new logo for VJ Army.

Rules are as follows:
- You must submit two files: both the original Photoshop/Illustrator/other layered format file, as well as a 150x64 PNG version. If you're using commercial fonts, please list them with your entry; if you're using freely distributable fonts, please include them if you think I may not have them.
- All submissions become the property of the site and can be used with credit to the original artist.
- Judging will be determined by me, along the following criteria: Originality, Integration Into The Site, File Size, Awesomeness.
- Please, no animated images.
- All entries must be received in my email box (remy@this domain) by January 15th, 2007.
- The winning entrant will receive a mint copy of the beatmania IIDX 13 DistorteD Limited Edition Soundtrack/Art Book. It's art, it's music, it's too cool!
- All VJ Army users are eligible.

Any questions, ask here - but I don't recommend posting your designs here, since I won't judge them and you know what they say about artists stealing.

Good luck to all!

Are we only allowed to submit one entry?

I sent in like six. But I couldn't really think of anything that great. I'll be genuinely surprised if I win.

Quantity over quality?

I'm wondering if anyone used a different type of theme (to replace the army color theme).

Sorry about the delay.

I'm extending the contest through the end of the month due to a general lack of response until after the contest ended (heh).

I have received entries from:
Laif
Apollo2X
Hlavco
Sakurina

That's it, currently. If I haven't received yours, please drop me a PM and I'll give you my alternate email address.

To Santiago22 and anyone else wondering about the existing fonts:

The VJA logo was done in Tekuteku.
The Pop'n Navy logo was done in Pico.

I love me some Maniackers.

Sorry I didn't send mine in sooner. I didn't notice the contest until early last week; didn't want to jump the gun and submit something that I felt was rushed. I don't check the forums too often huh.gif .

Imo, this implies that nobody made anything that was looking good enough for the purposes of this site. I would expect a further extension to the deadline to allow for more entries.

I have it narrowed down to 2 out of the 5 that I received. Answers soon.

Decided I need a second opinion. Both of the two finalists will be getting some sort of prize because of this. As soon as I can get said second opinion, I'll let you all know.

We actually have a tie.

Congratulations to both Sakurina and Laif for their simultaneously winning entries, which will be somewhat merged together to form the new final logo.

Thanks to everyone who submitted an entry.

Indeed, I can't wait to see what the merged logo will look like.
Congrats to co-winner Laif as well! smile.gif
