Each submission should include the following information and
should be sent to :
High resolution print-ready scalable vector format such as
portable EPS, SVG or Adobe Illustrator AI.
EPS, or PNG thumbnail that will display readily at a resolution of 640 x 480.
I have no initial requirement for the size of the logo (this could change) however it should be of reasonable size so as not to overpower the rest of the website but not too small so that one will not realize that this is the main logo of the website. The logo should be scalable so that a large version of it can be used on the front/homepage but also so that smaller logos can be used throughout subsequent pages. Seperate large and small logos can be submitted as long as they are of the same design concept.
Design concept / description.
Submitter's full name, email address, short paragraph on the inspiration behind the submission.
Names of all fonts used must be submitted. Preference will be given to common fonts available on the Mac or PC.

logo by assignment of copyright, and the winning designer will

rights related to the design (paperwork will be required).
By submitting a logo for entry in the competition, the
designer acknowledges that he/she is the person that made the
logo and is its rightful owner.
The designer also certifies that the logo does not infringe
upon the rights of any third party and that it does not
violate any copyright.
Designs will not be returned to the designers.
No responsibility can be accepted for entries that are lost,
* Any submissions which does not satisfy the above "submission
format" will be ignored without any warning.

1 Communication: Colors must represent our community and also communicate the purpose of my website: newton support/repairs and sales.
2 Graphic Design Professionalism: All logo designs must be crisp and clean. No fuzzy, pixilated, or compression artifacts. Exceptions may be made for creative breaking of "design standards".

5. Logo will be judged by a panel of my choosing with as few or as many judges as I choose.
