NSS Biology Section Logo Design Contest

$150 Cash Prize

The Biology Section of the NSS is an internal organization of the National Speleological Society, whose members have an interest in the tremendously diverse subterranean fauna of North America and the world.

Submissions are invited for designs of an official logo for the Biology Section of the National Speleological Society. A cash prize of $150 USD will be awarded to the creator or creators of the winning design. The winning design will become the property of the NSS Biology Section as the official logo of the section. By submitting a design, you waive all rights to the design. The NSS Biology Section will own copyright and all other rights (including right to modify the logo). If no suitable design is submitted, no prize will be awarded. The logo may be featured on official communications from the section as well as publications such as the on-line journal Speleobiology Notes.

The deadline for submissions is October 15, 2012. Submit your design via email to Dan Fong , including your full name, email address, postal address, and NSS Number (if you have one). If you are submitting more than one design, each submission should be a separate email (each email with two attachments, see below for file formats).

Design does not include signature, artist name/initials, ©, or date. Design should be 3 colors or less. A couple of helpful links on Logo design:
