Viva Mexico!

 

WELCOME/BIENVENIDO! :) 

The world-famous standard & ode to The Donald welcomes us 'Down Mexico Way', to one of the world's most remarkable ancient cities - Teotihuacan!

Every four years, these pre-Columbian pyramids serve as the starting point for the Pan American Games torch relay, & right now, they see the beginning of something different - the 12th annual GamesBids Summer Olympic logo comp proper!

I say proper because it has already started. In Switzerland, we had a special voting round to determine our shortlist - I am pleased that nobody overshot, so all votes are valid, & the all-important results (in order of votes received) are:

C: 0 A:1 B:1 G: 3 E: 4 F: 4 H: 4 D: 5 I: 5 J: 5

As you can see, that's a 3-way tie on 5 votes, & on 4 votes too. So, I'm going to use my right to amend the 'cut' to put all three of the 4-scorers through. Logos D, E, F, H, I, & J will thus contest this first regular round. It does mean we sadly lose @Utkarsh Verma's Mumbai, @Glacib's Mumbai, & both of @Sir Rols' entries. Glacib still has his Mexico City, both Utkarsh & Rols - better luck next time.

So, with that now settled, it's time for the traditional voting system to bring us our winner. Here's a refresher on the rules (If you only voted in the summer shortlisting so far, read carefully - these rules are different):

  • This voting round will be open for (approximately) 48 hours - it will close at 9pm UK time, Saturday January 12.
  • Voting 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 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, so make it count.
  • Your vote is public and can be seen by all.
  • Entrants MAY vote for their own logo if they wish. For transparency, I will not vote unless required to break a tie.
  • Votes are valid if cast by members of GamesBids as of January 1 2019 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. However, if a tie-breaker vote is needed, I will reserve my right to vote in order to break it. 
  • Be fair and sportsmanlike, this is meant to be fun and the entrants all deserve RESPECT

So there we go - time to get eliminating. Unless we get a majority in this round, we will gather again in India for Round 2. In the meantime, may the best logo win!

GOOD LUCK! :)

totally forgot about gb for ages, and never dreamed you'd be able to put together a logo comp this year, so i've missed a lot. 

paul's entries were all excellent, both summer and winter, but i went with C. in general i prefer the mexico logos to the mumbai ones although D, the chicken giving the OK sign with its wing, is sort of appealing.

Ah, you misunderestimated us ;) I know it’s nothing like as vibrant as some previous editions, I know that, but then neither is the board. Heck, it’s bid book day today & you wouldn’t even know it - go back even 3-4 years & the whole forum would’ve been buzzing. But we’ve got a reasonable field, some voters & lots of worthy designs, so in this climate it’s a success :) 

PS - don’t forget to vote.
