Example #2
Nice and clean design. However, the graphic element to the left is more suggestive of a flame or a fox.

Additional note to consider for contest:
Logo must allow for expansion into other metropolitan areas, e.g. Chicago Media Institute or New York Media Institute. The Media Institute will stay but the city may change in the future expansion.

Example #31 Logo looks too much like a sports logo but is clean and aggressive.

Peter A, although there may be a minute resemblance due to the rectangular nature of the logo I feel that baiskee's logo still has enough to make it unique in comparison to those you mention through his use of colour and type.

What's your point PeterA? If my design happens to have a similarity with other logos... It was unintentional.
If I were you, I'll spend my time creating logos and contribute. Don't waste your time browsing and trying to look for similar designs of all the entries of designers.

Btw, If you have any concerns... Please PM me. It's one of the great features here in Logotournament. Try it.

Thank you neoarts.
Just curious, what's with the shield design? Usually shields goes to strength and security.
How can this relate to the company.
Maybe some explanation from the contest holder will be very apreciated.

Shield design for education isn't uncommon. Harvard would be an example:
