Nice one, KW! And of course, if there's ever the need, the silver-and-red double O that the eagle is holding could be used on it's own, too ...

I like that KW... the only thing I'd change is the colour of the 'O'... blue might be better.

The rules clearly state that you don’t get to vote at all, although the jury will take general opinion and/or bribes into account.

I guess what I was really trying to ask, in a roundabout kinda way, was whether this competition was going to run for another 18 months... I've looked through the thread, and there are a lot of really good submissions. Some of them, however, by board members who've been inactive for ages. Is it safe to assume that their contributions are safely enshrined somewhere other than this board, in case something untoward should happen with the linked images?

It's not safe to assume anything like that!

Take the browser silliness to Outworld, please.

The Judgement will be quite soon. At the moment, the entries that actually qualify are: These entries would qualify if they were provided without a background: I’d quite like to see qualifying versions of this one by disembodied (In addition to being to small, part of it’s cropped off).

No, I don’t have backups of the broken links. I had some of them a while back, but I don’t know where.
