Hello! Here are some hints for getting the most out of your contest:

~~ Rank designs daily -- this will encourage more participation.
~~ 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-monitary means of showing apprecaition for designers hard work.
~~ Designers earn points for ranked designs. We like to earn points.

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

Thanks to all for your entries. Here are some overall comments for all:

1. I like the dark green, more of a tennis court, instead of the light, more of a tennis ball or apple green type color.
2. I like the font choice on entry #23 and entry #18. I am not married to this font yet so feel free to try other options. What I like about them is, for #23, is it's impact, block type feeling and on #18 it shows movement without being too playful.
3. I like that the word sports is smaller and not as prominent so that it can be taken out or substituted easily for each of the sports when needed.
4. Can we see more logos combining the tennis court green and chocolate, dark wood brown?

I have extended the tournament because we are getting nice, mixed ideas and I would like to have more time to develop them.

Thanks

Thanks to all for your entries. Two comments:

1. I'm not sure about the golf ball. I know it is difficult because it has a lot of details but I would like to see a better synthesis for the golf ball or another idea. I want something that could work on a shirt.

2. I'm looking for a logo that can work for all three sports but that can also work for any individual one. Tennis is the most important.

Thank you so much.

Hi Carlos,

If you would like to see revisions on any of the designs from any designer, simply rank one of their designs as #1 during the 'Judging' phase.

Only the designer who is ranked #1 can submit more logo revisions to you during the "Judging" phase.
