  1. Hmmmm. It's been a bit of a slow time this year on old GamesBids. Can't say I've been very active myself. But still, couldn't let the year close without the site's annual Christmas and New Year celebration of graphic talent. So, welcome ladies and gentlemen of GamesBids, site founder Rob Livingstone and IOC President Thomas Bach, to my home town of Sydney for the launch of the Eighth edition of the Official GamesBids Olympic Logo Design Comp. Okay, I guess this kick-off is a week or so earlier than usual, but I didn't want to run the risk of someone **cough... Puppy... cough** stealing the thunder. But Thanksgiving is just around the corner, December (and Christmas) is nigh, and, well, I had the time on my hands to get it going today. To introduce the theme for this year's comp, I'll hand over to Australia's own showtune chanteuse Caroline O'Connor to explain exactly what you're going to be putting your design minds to this year. Over to you Caroline.... Yep, as a tribute to the very first logo comp in the series, way back when Puppy kicked it off, and to go full circle, this year, (*almost) Anything Goes! Basically, you get to choose the cities. It's simple! Pick a city or cities. Design a logo. Post it. You can use any city at all with just one restriction - the only ones not in the mix are the ones that have already been featured, or won, a past GamesBids logo comp. So that means Prague, Rio de Janeiro, Sochi, Aomori, Dubai, Durban, Christchurch, New York City, Ostersund, Paris, Toronto, Bangkok, Melbourne and Tokyo are NOT eligible. But beyond that, let your imaginations or inclinations run wild - choose anything from Aachen to Addis Ababa or Zanzibar to Zermatt. You may want to try your hand at a previous real life host like Sydney, London or Beijing, or something totally new, like Liege or Raqqa. Let your inspiration or interests guide you. You may choose the same cities that other people have also chosen - no-one gets to "claim" a city as their own. It's always interesting to see how different people approach the same subject. Everyone is allowed two official entries - one for the Summer Games of 2028 and one for the Winter Games of 2030. That said, you can try out and post up as many logo proposals as you want - you may want to get feedback for which of your designs are most popular or even run your own mini-poll to decide which ones you will ultimately submit. But by the end of the submission period, midnight December 31 Sydney time, you must nominate only one logo for either or each of 2028 or 2030 to go forward into the voting rounds. Alternatively, you may want to submit your logo/s privately to me, via pm, so it is a surprise come the "Big Reveal" in January. Early in the New Year, all official entries will be displayed for a period of time and voting will commence soon after. The voting procedures will depend on how many entries we get. I anticipate we’ll vote on this in the traditional “IOC Host City Selection” format, but will tailor the procedure to the numbers received. More on that when the time comes. Oh... there's also going to be a special event taking place after the 2028 and 2030 comps wrap up. Again, more on that in January. When voting starts, you will be judged on the quality of your design, not on which city will host. Your logo/s can either be absolutely abstract or have significance for your host city. With your submission include a brief explanation on what the logo means and how it would symbolise a Games in your city. You may also want to show us how it looks in various templates or situations, like posters, banners, apps, cups, t-shirts and keyrings. The Olympic rings are to be used in your designs - this is for a host city, not a bid city. As usual, I will rule on any disputes. As always, just remember, this is all meant to be fun. Try to keep the spirit friendly. Hopefully this will spark up some action on the board. I'll be keeping a close eye on proceedings, but otherwise will try and keep hands-off until the polling stages. ​Have fun, good luck, and dazzle us with your talent everyone!
