Hi dear CH! Here are some hints for getting the most out of your contest as it progresses:

~~ Rank designs daily -- this will encourage participation.
~~ Rank and re-rank a variety of designs to get a variety of new entries.
~~ Ranking gets your contest noticed! Unless your contest is private, 1st place entries are posted to the portfolio page: http://logotournament.com/portfolio
~~ Ranking designs daily will also keep your contest from getting cluttered.
~~ The more feedback you provide, the better results you are going to see.
~~ Designers are not offended by "Not Interested"
~~ Over-use of "Not Interested" discourages participation.
~~ Ranking is a non-monetary means of showing appreciation for designers hard work.
~~ Designers earn points for designs ranked in the top 10. We like to earn points.

~~ NOTE: While in JUDGING mode, the designer ranked in 1st can still submit revisions.

More detailed information on how to get the most out of your contest can be found here:

Great designs so far.

I would also like to see some designs with the words 'Australian Nature Photography' off to the right hand side of the logo, and also some designs where the logo is incorporated into the words 'Australian Nature Photography'.

For those of you looking to enter this tournament and looking for some inspiration: Maybe you could incorporate some of the equipment used in nature photography

examples:

I don't own any of those images above, I just found them via a google search.

Keep up the great work guys. Very happy with the results so far

Just a quick note.

Please when designing the text: I would like the emphasis to be on 'Nature Photography' rather than 'Australian'

Good examples of what I mean are #28 and #33
