The purpose of the contest is to design a T-Shirt design for Planet Of The Vapes. The logo will be used online, in print, and on merchandise. Flexibility is a key requirement, including the need to resize easily and to look good in black and white as well as color. The final version of the logo will need to be suitable for high quality printing.
While the logo needs to look good at relatively small sizes, it will not need to be shrunk for use as a Favicon.
Because of the requirement to register the logo as a Service Mark, Entrants should take care to ensure that their Entries are not in any way similar to existing logos or other copyrighted images. A logo that cannot be registered as a Service Mark, no matter how well crafted, cannot win the Contest.
The logo must contain the image of Monkey Face (which Planet Of The Vapes claims as a Service Mark). This image should not be photographic (see below for information on graphic formats), but must be recognizable as the Monkey Face.
Due to the requirements for high quality printing and re-sizing Entries must submitted in scalable vector graphic format (EPS). We advise against the use of halftones and gradients unless created inside a vector graphics program. Color in this version must be CMYK, no spot colors.
The winning designers will receive:
- First Place: $100; Second Place $50; Third Place $25
- All submitted work must be original and not based on any pre-existing design.
- All Entries will become the sole property of Planet Of The Vapes and may be displayed publicly on Planet Of The Vapes web sites.
- The winning entry will be registered by Planet Of The Vapes as a Service Mark and the Entrant agrees to transfer all right and title to the Entry to Planet Of The Vapes in accordance with the Official Rules of this Contest.
(Entrants should note that the Monkey Face is already claimed by Planet Of The Vapes as service marks so re-use of unsuccessful entries would be difficult without infringing existing Planet Of The Vapes rights.)
