Hi there,

Looks like ;-)

Good idea, and I guess this would bring it up to the best results.

If Herbert agrees, I (as the "initiator" of this thread, but maybe
someone else too?) would also call out a small price in form of Amazon
(or whatever) credit for the winning three and also a "top 10 logos
voted by the community hall of fame" page to honor the best 10 logos,
which also takes them for free download and usage under GPL (or
whatever appropriate license, IANAL).

VW> a defined submission process (by email/HTTP upload/etc.)

For that I would offer a email to maybe myself and put them online on
the "muh" server, adding a vote script from date of "last entry date"
up to one week, so there's a clear schedule as well for that.

VW> rules for a ballot committee (certain persons? an open community
VW> voting? opoll on the ml?)
VW> and the aspects to assess, etc..

I'd suggest a first "community vote" and later a top-10 "committee"
choosing the top three out of the 10.

VW> I would recommend a 4-stage process:
VW> 1. Open community poll, every person may elect its 3 favorites and

Yes and no to that - I'd rather think a closed poll/voting with
showing results only upon end of votes will make it easiest to enable
anonymous votes without easy ceating upon "my logo is not on top"
results ;-)

VW> 2. The top 10 logos are published and get in extensive review and

Not too complicated? I'd rather let "just" the top-3 choice up to the
"jury" - and would guess a little more who to place into it ;-)

I would prefer "propsal and election" - and for me it has to be clear,
that neither of the arts is to be in the jury.
