In order to have a successful contest and for you to get a logo that really hits the mark, we really do need some feedback. Without it, we are doing nothing more than guessing whether we are headed the right direction.

Thanks!

NCRA will offer a new Certification Program and we need a logo to start creating a brand. We want one logo to cover all certificate programs for NCRA.

...and that is exactly what we would like to provide for you. It helps to rate those that you like and say "not interested" in those that are going the wrong direction. It helps to leave feedback here on particular layouts. It helps us as designers to better understand your vision. Thanks!

Very confused as well now, a little help from the CH would be nice? I have a feeling many of us missed the "Additional Information" post.
