AnniversaryPatch2015_Event.png


For this event, you have to design a patch commemorating an event (sporting or non-sporting) that really happened in 2005, 1995, 1990, 1965, 1940, or 1915 (10, 20, 25, 50, 75, or 100 years ago).
  • Include the years in the design.
  • You may use and incorporate existing images or logos, but the overall design must be your own.
DEADLINE: November 6th, 11:59AM Eastern Time

Reminder - Read this carefully as I won't give out warnings this time!

Failure to follow the guidelines could result in your entry being inadvertently (or intentionally) excluded from judging.

Entries must be emailed to logolympiad (@) gmail (dot) com prior to the set deadline. Subject line should be the event number (Ex: Event 1). Once you submit your entry, it is considered final.

Entries must be submitted as .jpg, .gif or .png formats. The file name format of the submission is: event#_yourusername.extension (Ex: event1_pollux.png). The file must be attached to your email.

All final entries must be 800x600 pixels with at least 70 pixels of white space at the bottom of the image. This means that your presentation has to fit in a 800x530 pixels window (800 pixels wide by 530 pixels high). I will NOT re-size entries that are not properly done, so make sure it's right.

The background of the entries should be solid white, unless otherwise specified. You must not use gradients, shadows, patterns, lines, etc. on your background.

Do not add any text or images to your submission, unless otherwise specified. Do not add the team name, location, the entry number, the event type, etc.

Do not include your name or any other personal identifiers on your submission. Also, do not watermark your work. I will add a watermark to each entry before they get posted for judging. I will also provide each entry with a number. You are expected to keep the identity of your entry anonymous until the end of the event. If you think you know the identity of another designer, keep it to yourself. Anyone who exposes the identity of themselves or anyone else will be DQ'd.

I will NOT contact you if your entry is wrong, therefore make sure that you comply to these guidelines before submitting your entry.

If an event took place during say the 1995 season, but the actual event being commemorated happened in 1996 even though it was still a part of the 1995 season, than that event would be disqualified for this contest correct?

My wording is a bit confusing here, but to try to explain myself better. NFL seasons start in one year, but the playoffs linger into January of the next. So a team winning an NFL championship in 2008 won for the 2007 season.

In the case of this contest, we wouldn't be able to have an anniversary patch commemorating a championship or playoff game or something something in the 2005, 1995, 1990, etc season if the actual championship or playoff game, or whatever happened in 2006, 1995, 1991, etc. Right?

I hope this question makes sense.

You are correct. The event has to have taken place during one of the years mentioned in the original post. In your example, Super Bowl XL takes place in 2006 for the 2005 season, so it wouldn't be valid.

Include the years in the design.

I have already received entries for this event. Please make sure to comply with this rule. Years mean the dates, for example 1965-2015, not the length, for example 50 years. The length can appear, but you need the years included within your design.

From a PM. The question was very specific, but I can't do anything else than to quote it fully here to disperse any doubt.

So I was planning on making a patch for the first Simpsons episode being aired, which was in May 1990. However, the season premiere was in December of 1989 of an episode that had been produced at a later time. Would this still be a valid entry?

I checked a bit, and the first episode aired in 1989, not 1990. What I think you meant is that the first produced episode actually was aired in May 1990. The one that aired in 1989 was actually the eighth episode to be produced.

That being said, you wouldn't be able to do a patch for the first aired episode, because that was done in 1989 (26 years ago). To be honest, it would be weird to see the patch for the first produced episode too, because it's clear it was produced in 1989, but only aired in 1990.

It is a weird situation, but I wouldn't accept a submission for this. Sorry.

From a PM:

This year marks the 50 Year anniversary of <REDACTED>'s creation. Would you consider that a sporting event?

To this, I answer the bolded part:

For this event, you have to design a patch commemorating an event (sporting or non-sporting) that really happened in 2005, 1995, 1990, 1965, 1940, or 1915 (10, 20, 25, 50, 75, or 100 years ago).

Basically, any event will do, as long as the dates can be verified. It could be pretty much any type of event.

So in this particular case, your idea is OK.

From a PM:

This may seem obvious based on previous responses, but I had a wrinkle to it I wanted to verify: Both years need to appear, correct?

So, 1915-2015?

What if we were to include just the origination date? In my case, <snip>, 1915, and then a "100 years" or something similar. Would that be a DQ?

For this event, you need to include both years. So just as you mentioned, 1915-2015.

You can include the origination date, but you need both years. If I only see one date, then it will be a DQ.

I will definitely keep this in mind for the next Logolympiad though.

Perhaps an odd question, but because this is meant as a patch, do you want (or do you care) if there are "stitches" (nee dashed stroke) around the edge? Or does it just need to stay flat?

=== On second thought, maybe that's a little too hokey.

Can we use a shorten notation for the years? ie. '65 - '15 or 65 - 15

You don't need to have the stitching on there. The patch can be shown flat. The idea is that your submission would be used as a patch, but you don't need to show it as sown onto a jersey.

Stick with the complete dates, i.e. 1965-2015.

I will also keep that in mind for next year.
