The contest framework is under development by the web committee.  Please
feel free to comment on the wiki page's discussion link.  There are a

  o I think you can propose something like $50 of swag for the winner
    the understanding that it might not be available to present till
    later when we have "swag production" in operation.

Subject: [OSGeo-Discuss] OSGEO logo contest - when?

If I recall correctly, there has been a debate over branding, in
pre-Chicago days...

Something regarding visual identity or the like...

When are going to open the contest for the logo?

are we waiting the board to be finished?
