Okay, here's the deal It's been suggested numerous times over the years that we should have a poll of polls of all our past logo winners and crown an all-time winner. I've been wanting to don it myself, but have been waiting for the right moment. I was almost going to do this during the Rio Olympics, but at the end figured it would be a distraction at this stage. Now, however, I reckon this could just be the time to do it, to try and raise a bit of interest and enthusiasm for this year's mainstream logo comp, and for all of us to have a bit of fun and something to do during the submission stage.

So, I institute the inaugural GamesBids Olympic Logos Winners' Cup. It aims to choose a favourite logo from all the winners of our annual Olympic Logo winners to date. It's going to take a knockout format like our World Cup logo comp from July. All sixteen previous winners have been seeded into four groups of four. Multiple winners (Paul, DannyelBrazil, Demetrius and aismanggo) have had their logos seeded into separate pools (in Paul's case, he had six winners, so he has overlapped in two of the pools). Other single winners fill up the rest of the pool spots.

The groups being voted on in this thread are as follows:

Group C: Christchurch, Rio de Janeiro, Toronto and Paris

Group D: New York City, Bangkok, Melbourne and Oslo

There's another thread for the other groups, A & B. 

Here are the rules for voting in this stage:

1) It's one vote per person, per group. You can vote in as many or as few groups as you wish. 

2) You have a week to vote - voting in this stage is open until Wednesday December 7. 

3) The top 2 logos in each of the groups at the close will progress to the next round - the Quarter-Finals. 

4) If there is a tie between any 2 logos in any round, I reserve a casting vote/penalty kick. I will not vote in the regular voting time, & if I do need to use a casting vote, I will base it first on my own subjective opinion. 

At the end of this round, the Quarter-Finals will be arranged according to the draw diagramm. The competition will progress from that point as a simple knockout - each lasting about a week - culminating on December 31, just before submissions close in our regular logo comp (Kathmandu 2030 and Hamburg 2032/Havana 2032). 

You can vote for yourself if you want to - draw some previous winners back to the board and inspire them for another tilt at the crown.

There's some pretty good logos there - may the best of them now reign over the rest. Good luck to all!

And one last thing - if you're looking at these and inspired - please get out your graphics packages and make sure you're in this year's comp. Go to this thread to enter!
