So you think you can design logos. No, that’s not the title of a new reality competition show (unfortunately), it’s our way of taunting you to enter the Brands of the World logo awards contest. What’s in it for you? Fame and fortune, of course. “As part of a large network of sites that generate more than five million visitors monthly, we can reach many employers and clients,” says Ivan Raszl, editor of Brands of the World and the brains behind the logo lauding initiative. “So participating in the logo awards can convert to employment offers or freelance work.” Plus there’s an iPad 2 up for grabs. It’s as easy as registering here, uploading the best work you’ve created so far this year, and then waiting for judges including Armin Vit (UnderConsideration) and Calvin Lee (Mayhem Studios) to deem you worthy of one of the gold, silver, or bronze awards. (An entry fee of $19 per logo is required.) All submissions must have been created by the designer or firm submitting the work between January 1, 2011 and December 31, 2011, which is also the last day to enter.
