Bitwit Logo Contest

Kyle is having a design contest for a new Bitwit logo. A cash prize will be awarded if we use your design. Details below.

Cash Prizes
A cash prize will be awarded if we choose your logo. A cool logo concept that we develop into a final logo will be awarded your choice of either $200 cash OR Amazon Gift Card in the same amount. A complete, ready to print or display logo will be awarded your choice of either $1,000 cash OR Amazon Gift Card in the same amount.

Deadline for Entries
Deadline for entries in August 15, 2018.

Logo Concepts
Logo concepts are ideas that we like, but need additional work or revisions to make them suitable for final use. Logo concepts can include, but are not limited to, drawings, raster art, or vector art that we feel needs to be revised.

Complete Logos
Complete, ready to use logos are fairly self explanatory. Vector artwork is preferable. High resolution raster art is good, but vector is better. Prize money for complete designs will be awarded if the art is professional looking, creative, original, and requires very minimal or no work to make it print ready.

Logo Suggestions
We are looking for a logo that is iconic, not necessarily tech related, preferably something that will work without text. I know this is a vague description, but that is the point. We are open to all ideas.

Artwork Criteria
General - Vector art is best. Adobe Illustrator files are ideal. Other file extensions that work are eps, svg, and some pdf. Vector files should contain no more than 6 colors, preferably 4 colors or less. Photoshop files and other raster files need to be high resolution, 300 dpi is acceptable, 600 dpi is ideal. Scanned drawings should be 600 dpi. If your design has more than 6 colors and/or lots of gradient shading, a tif file with a transparent background is best. Acceptable raster file formats are psd, tif, png, and jpg.
Hand Drawings - Hand drawings must be easily scanned so they can be converted to vector. Scan at 600 dpi, please. Drawings should be black on white or other bold contrasting colors. Pencil drawings and sketchy drawings do not work well.
Fonts - Please submit all font names with the design. 
Photoshop Files - Please include all layers in final submissions. It is sometimes helpful to be able to separate layers when revising art. Remember, if the design is full color (more than 6) or has lots of shading, a transparent background is required for our color separation software.
Vector Files - Please keep vector files to 6 or less color, preferably 4 colors. Please use Pantone colors or spot colors if you know how. If not, please use CMYK. Please include font names with final submissions.

Design Submissions
Send all entries as jpgs at least 8.5" x 11". Keep your originals in the format that you created the art in. We will need the original format to work with if we choose your design.
Send entries less than 10 MB to bitwitlogo@gmail.com as an email attachment. If the submission is larger than 10 MB, please give John at vtgreenprinting@gmail.com a link to a remote folder for download. John will share all submissions with Kyle. Kyle will make the final decisions on all entries.

Thank You.
