  1. Good Evening Ladies and Gentlemen, Mesdames et Monsieurs, And Hola! Welcome to Havana. I hope you've enjoyed your cruise on our slow boat from Hamburg, but all good things must come to an end. Tonight we reach the culmination of our journey to choose this year's logo winner, a journey that took us from the wilderness of Nepal to the streets of Hamburg and now to the delights of tropical Havana. On the way we've crowned an all-time logo winner, a winter games logo winner and now we are set to add another name to our pantheon of summer logo winning designers. I want to thank everyone who entered this year - these comps couldn't go on at all without your keenness to put pixel to page and your willingness to share your ideas and put them up for appraisal by our tough judging panel. It's not easy - I know all too well - so I salute you all and give you my heartfelt thanks. I also want to thank everyone who voted - I hope it's given you a bit of diversion and something fun to do on the board. And it's true, you all are a discerning and knowledgeable audience. You always come up with a winning entry that's truly worthy to crown at the end. Anyway, to make the winner's announcement, I'm going to hand over to our special guest presenter who has flown into Havana by special request to associate with winners. Senors, Senoras and Comrades I give your, ahead of his inauguration as most powerful man in the western world, US President-Elect Donald Deejay Trump! DJT: Thank you Mr Rols. Aint you glad you didn't sign Alec Baldwin now. Who better to crown a winner to than me. And I can tell you, I've grabbed a few winning pussies in my time. And it's great to be here to support GamesBids and build walls with Mr Castro. Vlad was just telling me the other day that Cuba's not that bad a spot and i gotta agree with him now. It'd make a great new State. But I get ahead of myself, I'm here to crown a winner instead of that loser Mr Bach or that crook Hillary. That's what I'm great at. And I think it all gives you all great pleasure and honour to be here to hear me declare that Miss Universe 2017 is... errr... the winner of the 10th Annual GamesBids Logo Competition is..... Mr Daveypodmore with Havana 2032! Sir Rols: Thank you Mr President-Elect. We hope you'll grace us at future logo comp announcements. And congratulations to Davey. For the record, the voting was 10 to four in favour of your Havana logo. About time you've made it to another win in the comps. I'm surprised it's taken so long. You now join the list of our multiple award winners like Demetrius, DannyelBrazil, aismanggo... and Paul. Also again, congratulations to Paul for taking out the Winners' Cup last month, and following that up with your Kathmandu win. I think all our winners this year were very fitting. And that's it for this year. Again, thanks to everyone who got involved an a big thanks to Yoshi for your moral support and advice. All that's left now is to say Hasta La Vista, invite you all to have a taco in memory and tribute to TeamBlakeUSA and let's all let our hair down and mambo!
  2. So there's one last act left to play out, and it comes down to Davey versus Davey! Round three of the Hamburg vote ended with a decisive result. With 12 votes cast, we had Davey's logo A come in comfortably with eight votes against Scotguy's Logo B with Four. I was actually quite pleased that Scotty made it this far - I know he's been a bit discouraged with the comps in the past. Maybe he didn't make the big final, but I was pleased to see him fighting to the end here. Good one mate! And great sportsmanship with your vote in the end. Well done! And a big congratulations to Davey - finally cracked it through for a second logo win. Well deserved, whichever one comes through in the end. Which leaves us with one last vote to see which Davey logo makes the Roll of Honour. Simple rules: This voting round will be open for (approximately) 24 hours - it will close after 7am, Monday January 9, Sydney time (8pm Jan 8 GMT). At the end of voting the entry with the majority will be declared the winner of the Summer Section of the 10th Annual GamesBids Olympic Logo Comp and the winning city the Olympic host for 2032. Vote in the poll for your favourite logo. You have ONE vote, so make it count. Your votes are public and can be seen by all. The entrant, Davey, may vote for which of the two is his favourite. Votes are valid if cast by members of GamesBids as of December 1 2016 with a bona fide posting record. I will rule on the validity of any suspicious or disputed votes, or who constitutes a bona fide voting member. I will only vote if a tie-breaker vote is needed. Now, this would be, I won't say an easy one, but not a painful decision to have to make Be fair and sportsmanlike, this is meant to be fun and the entrants all deserve RESPECT. The ship docks in Havana harbour tomorrow, so enjoy your last night on the cruise and be ready for the official Ceremonie d'Annonce tomorrow. If there's one act left to play in the voting, I have one last act left to carry out in the comp. Enjoy the last stage of the ride!
  3. Welcome back everyone to Round 2 of voting for the 2032 Summer Games Logo of the 10th Annual GamesBids Olympic Logo Comp. First of all, the events of Round 1. And the big news there was the single round victory of Daveypodmore in the Havana section. Congratulations Davey! Well done. Which means we say Adios to Glacib's, JO2024's and Paul's Havana entries . Results were, with 14 votes all valid: Logo A (Glacib) 3 votes; Logo B (JO2024) 2 Votes; and Logo C (Davey) 9 votes. Davey's, with 64.29 per cent, is automatic winner. The big shock to me was Paul's bowing out with no votes! I really picked it as one of the strongest contenders. As usual, his usual support materials were excellent. I sure didn't see this result coming for his Havana logo. And, I'm sad to say, it means the clean sweep for this year is now out of his reach. Still, I guess the Logo Winners' Cup and the Kathmandu prizes make up a bit for that. And so on to Hamburg. When I went to bed last night, it looked like Davey could scoop the pool in both sections in one round. But those pesky Hamburgers are keeping him honest. As it stands in the cold light or morning (or not so cold in Sydney), the results were: Logo A (Davey) 6 votes; Logo B (Glacib) 2 votes; Logo C (Scotguy) 5 votes; and Logo D (JMarkSnow2012) 1 Vote. JHMarkSnow's Hamburg referendum finger is therefore eliminated and with no other polling more than 50 per cent, we move onto a second round for Hamburg. Not to offend you, JMark, but I'm a little relieved - I thought yours was capable of being the Donald Trump of logo entries. I'm a little surprised a "humour" logo hasn't cracked through to win to date. But thanks for entering and being a good sport. So, to restate rules: This voting round will be open for (approximately) 24 hours - it will close after 7am, Saturday January 7, Sydney time (8pm Jan 6 GMT). Voting in this section will now be conducted in rounds until one entry has an absolute majority and is declared the winner. The winner of the Hamburg rounds will go on to face the winner of the Havana rounds in a final poll to declare the overall winner and Olympic host for 2032. In this and following rounds, the logo in each section with the lowest number of votes will be eliminated at the close of the poll. Vote in the poll for your favourite logo. You have ONE vote in each section, so make it count. Your votes are public and can be seen by all. Entrants MAY vote for their own logo if they wish. Votes are valid if cast by members of GamesBids as of December 1 2016 with a bona fide posting record. I will rule on the validity of any suspicious or disputed votes, or who constitutes a bona fide voting member. I will not vote in this, or any subsequent rounds. If a tie-breaker vote is needed, I will cast the tie-breaking vote. Be fair and sportsmanlike, this is meant to be fun and the entrants all deserve RESPECT. So who's gonna face off against Davey's Havana in the final? Get voting to decide!
  4. Sorry Martin, I know it's not to your tastes, but it had to be... Guten Abend meine Damen und Herren, Willkommen zu Hamburg! We;re here tonight to start our our voyage on a slow boat to Havana to decode on the winner of this year's Summer Games section of the logo comp. We've got a field of eight starters for this section - four for Havana and four for Hamburg. So we're gonna have a slight change in proceedings from the usual for this part of the comp. I've divided the logos up into two groups for each individual city. These two groups will be voted on in concurrent polls, using standard IOC voting (see below). When we get to having a single logo each representing the two cities, those two will then face off against each other in a final round to determine the overall winner, and which city will hoist the 2032 Summer Olympic Games. This will ensure voting will go on for more than a single round and also give us an unpredictable final with two logos that haven't faced up each other yet. Davey and Glacib both have logos in each section, so it is possible they may dominate the final. Or JO2024, Paul, Scotguy or JMarkSnow0212 may crash their party. That's for you the voters to decide. Anyway, let's get it going. Here's the rules: This voting round will be open for (approximately) 24 hours - it will close after 7am, Friday January 6, Sydney time (8pm Jan 5 GMT). I may keep it open longer to the Saturday if voting's slow, or in the hope Krow will do his call of the card. Voting in both sections will now be conducted in rounds until one entry has an absolute majority and is declared the winner. In this and following rounds, the logo in each section with the lowest number of votes will be eliminated at the close of the poll. Vote in the poll for your favourite logo. You have ONE vote in each section, so make it count. Your votes are public and can be seen by all. Entrants MAY vote for their own logo if they wish. Votes are valid if cast by members of GamesBids as of December 1 2016 with a bona fide posting record. I will rule on the validity of any suspicious or disputed votes, or who constitutes a bona fide voting member. I will not vote in this, or any subsequent rounds. If a tie-breaker vote is needed, I will cast the tie-breaking vote. Be fair and sportsmanlike, this is meant to be fun and the entrants all deserve RESPECT. That's about it then. I'll make any other calls I need to on the fly. Thanks to all our entrants - Viel Gluck to you all and may the best designer win. See you in Havana!
  5. Yes, at the risk of flogging a dead horse, I'm doing it again. Let's get it started Nicole! Thank you to the lovely Nicole Kidman, and welcome to the launch of the 10th Annual GamesBids Logo Design Comp. To say the least, it's been a bit of a quiet year on GamesBids, the festivities in August in Rio notwithstanding. Still that mid-year period did bring back some of the old spirit, and one thing that helped a lot with that IMO, was Yoshi's World Cup logo comp. I'd wondered whether I'd bother to revisit the Christmas staple again this year, but that comp did inspire me that it was worth another go. So let's see if it has legs. So down to business, and this year's cities. This year we're going back to the old format, after a few years of (hit-and-miss) experimentation (I thought I was doing everyone a favour giving you free rein last year). To announce the Winter Host city, I'm joined by the Goddess Kali (or it may be Shiva in her destroyer aspect... I'm not entirely sure, the information boards here are pretty scarce). Kali (or Shiva) and I are here in the winter host city to announce that this year we are after logos for... Kathmandu 2030 The capital of Nepal, nestled in the foothills of the Himalayas is pleased to announce that it is using its natural landscape and money it doesn't have to stage the Winter Olympic games of 2030 in a fitting setting for the winter sports frolics. Actually I chose it for a few reasons - I wanted something with lots of graphical potential, I didn't want to go to India and I was actually here in Kathmandu earlier this year, so I can treat you to a few happy snaps of the trip along the way. I'm expecting colour, tradition, Hindu or Buddhist elements and maybe even elephants. As to summer? I had my heart set on a german city this year. Up until a few days ago, it was almost certainly going to be Berlin. But then I just yesterday got an email from a Señor Raoul Castro of Cuba, asking me to consider his request to pay tribute to his recently departed dear brother. I'm prepared to consider that, but I didn't want to give up on Germany totally, so I'll give a choice of two for this year's Summer comp. Both starting with the letters "H" and "A". In honour of our esteemed GamesBids member, all round nice chap and my good friend Citius Altius Fortius, and of Comrade Fidel Castro, this year you get to choose between: Hamburg 2032 or Havana 2032 Hamburg, Germany's largest port city and second largest city, was a preliminary bidder for the 2024 Summer Games. It's also home to CAF, and therefore more than deserving to be an Olympic host. But let's see if we can do better than their 2024 logo: Havana, or La Habana, is the capital and largest city of Cuba. It was a preliminary bidder for the 2012 games, though we're not sure if they were serious or not. It also had designs on hosting in 1920 and 2008. Suffice to say, it got nowhere. Lovely scenery though! For those of you not familiar with the drill, the rules and advice for this stage of the competition are: We are after logos for that encompass the overall feel of the city and local influences that can be tied into a design concept. How can any of these cities articulate graphically what they could bring to future Olympics hosting? What flavour will they bring to the games?

 Can elephants be incorporated into a Kathmandu logo? The logos should be presented as full colour designs on white background. If you like, however, they can also be presented in black and white or utilised in forms like street banners, t-shirts, apps, vehicles, pins etc. For voting purposes, the main (colour) logo will be used on the polls, but any extra material you produce may help you “sell” your design better to the wider GamesBids voting membership.

 These logos are for HOST cities. So you can use the rings, and don't need to include the words “Candidate City”. Post your preliminary submissions on this thread. If you want to hold anything back to be presented as a “surprise” when voting starts you can contact me via PM and I'll tell you where you can send the extra material.

 Feel free to post as many logo designs as you like. When the time comes for voting, however, you will be asked to settle on ONE official logo in each category (winter and summer) as your official entry.

 The competition is open to all members of gamesBids, or to any new legitimate members who join before December 31. I will rule on the legitimacy of new members. 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. The deadline for submissions is 12pm (Sydney time) on December 31 – ie, you must submit your logos before the end of this year. We will thus start 2017 (with a few days, perhaps, to clear our heads of hangovers) with the voting for short lists, followed by the final round polls. Have fun, good luck, good Karma to all and dazzle us with your talent everyone! Hopefully we'll get some past winners and some new blood entering this year. Or at least I hope so!
