Contest: Create a Logo for My Blog!

I’ve been thinking that it would rock if this website had a cool logo or artwork of some sort. So I thought I would create a contest to allow my talented readers a chance to help me out here. Here’s what I’m looking for:

  • Some kind of banner or background picture
  • A mouse (the furry kind, computer mouse, mecha or whatever) going up against a Python (or other cool snake). It can be realistic, cartooney, surreal, etc.

The artwork would be used on my blog and I’d put it on shirts and other items on a Zazzle-type account, cross-linked to my blog. The art will go under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported license.

Here’s what the lucky winners get:

First Prize

  • $100 Amazon gift certificate
  • Practical Programming: An Introduction to Computer Science Using Python
  • Attribution on my blog and links to the artist’s website(s)

Second Prize

  • $50 Amazon gift certificate
  • Attribution on my blog and links to the artist’s website(s)

Yes, I know it’s not much, but this is coming out of my own pocket and I’m no corporate bigwig. For those of you interested in statistics, this blog generates around 21000 page views a month with approx. 12-14000 visitors.

Email your submissions to Submissions should be no larger than 10 MB. Contest ends October 31, 2010 at 11:59 p.m. Central Standard Time. I am the sole judge and will choose the two submissions I like best.
