  1. Yikes, woke up to the news of my entry being booted. Oh well, at least I gave it a shot! Nevertheless, I did enjoy the process and learned some new things during my research about Toronto/ Ontario eg. the wonderful stories of the Group of Seven artists, other beautiful paintings by Tom Thomson (esp. The West Wind) and the Toronto ravine system (I tried to make it into a logo but proved difficult, and probably even more obscure to outsiders!). I’m glad to see Scotguy’s logo made it into the final. I voted for this mainly because it is the only logo in the shortlist that is not pastiche. It al

  2. Welcome back everyone for the business end of the Winter Games section of the Seventh Annual GamesBids Logo Design Competition. And a really big thank to all who voted in the short list round. We had an amazing 50 votes – I think it was our biggest voting turnout ever, to match the big field! Re: the results of the short list round. I discounted the votes from: nzl (competitor protest); rypyor03 & luan (not satisfied of their bona fides); all votes for submission G (the rest of the votes for members who voted for G are valid); and alphacarter’s, Daveypodmore’s and Mr Benham’s own votes

  4. Can't think of anyone pulling out for this reason at this stage. The security concerns have been there since day one, even though that may be news in Australia? Anyway, I'm glad none of the Australian participants will travel to Sochi by car, bus or train. The highway and train links from Sydney to Sochi are not in the best shape after all, I hear.

  5. It's not a matter of "us vs them" We are not different to you. Heck, I shouldn't be using the word "we" I am a human, you are a human, we have many differences, yet we are the same, and deserve the same basic rights as each other. Not because homosexual/bisexuals/transexuals should be treated the same as heterosexuals, but because we are all human. You didn't offend me, I have a thick skin. I just felt I should point out this flaw.

  7. He'd withdrawn it. It finished with six votes, though. I was disappointed to see Kevzz's pixelated winter forest go myself.

  9. Maybe Tony subscribes to the problematic "No means Yes" theory of consent.

  10. "Toronto WOG never would happen"...unrealistic?? But in other words the comp is so dreamful.For a user who is familiar with designing already and even for a user who is not so good at art...for both types of users,this is a pretty good opportunity. I enjoy this comp very much and I appreciate Sir. Rols to organize this event every year.

  11. I think the quality of submissions for this contest is just fine. If there are problems, it is the subject...a Winter Olympics in Toronto just would never happen. Putting in some of the typical winter imagery like mountains is laughable considering there are no really big mountains to be found in the entire province of Ontario. And if the elements present seem a bit repetitive, consider that Toronto itself has used maple leafs and Ts in much of its own sports branding (their 1996 and 2008 Olympic bids, their beloved Maple Leafs, the 2015 PanAms, the Blue Jays and Toronto FC). Good luck to all

  12. Three important points to this matter: -Bribery: Personal opinions aside, you need verifable proof to make this accusation factical. Legally, you can't procede without the concrete or circunstancial evidences and only suspisions. Also quaker made another point, this is a correlaction decision. -Political issues: Define that, because it's a big espectrum of variables. And as we know with Sochi breakdown, unless the country came in a civil war, it won't happen for that reason. -Slave Workers: Terrible issue, but unfortunally Qatar isn't alone in this aspect -The other countries aren't white

  13. Why many people here are thinking Rome is out? It was just the mayor of Milan trying to steal the spotlight in favor of his city. After that, the mayor of Rome denied that and next, the Italian Prime Minister supported Rome bid. Even the P.M. talked with Bach about the project and the CONI is more in line of Rome -According to recent news-. Until an official statement from the CONI, Rome 2024 bid is still on race. Like FYI said, in France they started to pull pieces for a new Paris bid, especially with the close Paris elections -Choosing the next mayor between the socialist Anne Hidalgo and t
