New Logo Design Contest!

Hey there Gotye Nuts!

We’ve had an amazing official logo for some time now, thanks to the brilliant artistry of former nut Louisa. It’s been beloved by many, and become a symbol for our community.

Our original logo (to be retired) by L. Degotte. Image by nut Stephanie.

We are opening a contest for the new official Wall-Nuts logo starting now! There are simple guidelines for the image anyone can submit:

1. it must contain some direct and recognizable reference to Gotye music or imagery

2. It must contain some direct and recognizable reference to the image of a walnut

3. The artist agrees to allow the Wall-Nuts to utilize the image as their official logo with the understanding that no individuals will expect personal financial profit from said image*

4. The image must be original and contain new work by the artist submitting. Images related to Gotye may be used within reason, will be screened with relevant individuals as needed, and must be integrated with the artist’s original work. Any copyrighted imagery cannot be copied directly into the image, and photoshopped or other images not submitted by the originator will be excluded in respect of the rights of the primary source.

All submissions can be sent as an attached image to our email thewallnuts@hotmail.com by 31 October, 2013. Please include your full name and mailing address so that you can be sent the winning prize should your image be selected by the community. Your information will not be shared outside the judging officials, however, you will be credited for the origination of the image  whenever and wherever possible (with the understanding that occasionally images tend to spread online based on unexpected factors.)

The winner will be announced here, on Twitter and our private FB group. The winner will be contacted via email as well so as to confirm the status of their work and that their prize is being sent.

*The image will be used on official tee shirts and some other merchandise via redbubble.com, however, any significant profits from the sale of items will be allocated to a collective fund for members of the Wall-Nuts (and  the respective community) to be assisted with costs of gatherings and other officially sanctioned group events.

Can’t wait to see your work, nuts!!
