    Knights of the Crux Ansata are in need of a Logo.

    It could be of any artistic themes that you think is appropriate, example that come to mind are: an Ankh, a silver serpent, and/or an Egyptian phoenix.

    Each Entry must consist of two pieces of artwork:


    Art #1: Full, banner style logo "roughly" 1000px x 200px.

    Art #2: Smaller, Icon style logo of "roughly" 400px x 400px.


    The Fine print Note: By making an entry you give up all rights to the artwork. The artwork must be original and totally owned and composed by you. The Artwork will be used by the EM team and EM Bennu for a variety of uses in relation to the Knights of the Crux Ansata.

    Contest will run till EM Bennu finds an entry he loves :)

    You can post entries here, or email them to [email protected]

    Are we going to be able to view some of the entries maybe the best 5 or 10? Even if they arnt winners so the contestants can be sure they are working in the right direction?

    We are allowed to use photos from the internet correct? Or do we have to draw and construct the pieces from our own hands.

    As long has you have legal rights to the artwork, or at least permission to use/modify. I know a lot of people use the 'stock' section of several art websites where people post artwork and give permission to use it.

    If you take copyrighted work and cut out portions of it, you cant really call it your own :p

    Of course, enter as often and many times as you would like :)

    Once we get several good entries Ill set an 'end time' and then make a decision.

    I think you have your work cut out for you in picking one. So far all the entries are great imo.

    Last day for submissions will be the night of August 31st at Midnight EST.

    Submit either here in this thread or email me your submission and I will post it.
     
  16. I like them all as well but Faeryl's stood out to me.

    I just wish it included a phoenix.

    If Joanna combined her phoenix/serpent with Faeryl's ankh, that would be amazing.

    Well, I've been working on another submission when I have time, but with two birthdays and a funeral, I've been kind of busy lately...

    Hopefully now I'll have some time to finish it :D

    Hmmmm interesting.

    If you mean player voting that could be interesting. *chuckies*

    Poll on EM Forum? I forsee stratics account numbers rising in the near future

    In game ballot box? I forsee alot of trial accounts for UO

    :lol:



    No matter the case, to all the folks who submitted.... A job WELL done.

    I don't think anyone would make account just to vote for themselves. There arent that many people who submitted and I think all off us that did just want to see a nice logo picked in the end, which personally I think that they are all great, and any one of them would make a great winner.

    I think if you do choose to ask for people to vote, it should be in game. It would be a nice way to include the community and all of the knights of the crux. We are making a logo for THEM after all. so I think they are the ones that should pick.

    Either way its awesome that people came through with this with such lovely designs.

    Good luck to all!

    Sevil.

    After meeting with several EMs and getting their opinions here are your official winners.

    All entrants will receive Merit Points for their Crux Ansata Rank, and the two winners will receive double that amount.
