The winning logo will be unveiled in Times Square on December 12, 2012 followed by a book launch featuring a selection of the entries from the contest.
Logo designers who submit will be eligible for the following prizes, including a large number of DesignCrowd’s ethical crowdsourcing Participation Payments:
- 1st Place: $5,000
- 2nd Place: $1,000
- 3rd Place (Most Facebook Likes): $500
- 4th Place: $300

For participating designers whose design is not selected, DesignCrowd’s sister marketplace, BrandCrowd.com, offers a way to monetize their unused designs by uploading the designs for sale.
Submissions close on July 7. Make sure to check out the contest while there’s still plenty of time!
