To all Designers. We would like to see if you could come up with something focused around Entry #23 and Entry #50. We really like using Your eBay Agent and Come In...Cash Out tag lines.

"Here's the first of a few guidelines from eBay legal regarding appropriate use of eBay intellectual property:

1. USE OF THE STANDARD EBAY LOGO:
Generally speaking, eBay does not permit use of its standard logo by third parties, including Trading Assistants. Use of the logo or the eBay name on merchandise is not permitted. Use of the eBay logo in promotional materials of any kind, on websites or in listings on the eBay site is not permitted."

When it comes time for final rankings, designers appreciate when you choose the top three CONCEPTS (as opposed to variations of the same design) for the gold, silver and bronze awards.
Also, rank as many entries as possible, because designers get points added to their overall site standing for each blue ribbon they get.

This is how points are distributed:

1st place - 50 points
2nd place - 20 points
3rd place - 10 points
4-6th place - 5 points
7-10 place - 3 points

After that, each ranked entry gets one point for the designer. Nobody will be insulted by being ranked last, the points are still good! So if you pull some entries out of the "Not Interested" group and give them a rank, the designer gets some benefit from entering your contest.

Hope that's helpful, lots of contest holders don't realize this and most are glad to know. It's a good way to thank designers who don't win the contest prize, but who worked very hard to offer you lots of options to choose from for a great logo. (original post by SpeedLogo - LT moderator)
Thank you
