Given the great fun we all had with emaja's church logo (http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=183253) I thought some of you might be interested in the Power Kings (http://www.powderking.com) current logo contest.

We're having a contest to design a new Logo for the Powder King Mountain Resort Inc.
This is what we are looking for in a logo:
The logo must be simple in design to make it transferrable to print media.
The logo must be at a resolution of at least 300 pixels per inch and submitted in a .jpeg format.
The winning entry must have the file available in a .tiff format and with the layers available for altering if necessary.
Our Mountain colours are red and white but not exclusive to the design.
The logo must incorporate the new mountain/crown into its design.
It must have the name Powder King and include the words Mountain Resort in it.
The logo should have the ability to have a place for our coined phrase "Whisper of the North" somewhere in it.
Entries that are lost, late, misdirected, garbled, or incompletely received, for any reason, including by reason of hardware, software, browser, or network failure, malfunction, congestion, or incompatibility at Sponsors servers or elsewhere, will not be eligible.
All entries become the property of Powder King Mountain Resort Inc. and will not be returned.
Except where prohibited: (i) acceptance of prize constitutes consent to use winners names and likeness for editorial, advertising and publicity purposes, without further compensation.
The winning entry will be posted on the Powder King Website http://www.powderking.com.
Entries will be accepted until a winning Logo has been discovered.
Entries must be e-mailed to powderhound@powderking.com
One winner will be selected and will receive 2 nights accommodation at the Powder King Hotel and two days lift passes for two persons.

Hehe now the main reason I'm posting this is because it seems completely inappropriate to be holding a contest for your logo (hello whistler 2010 olympics committee), so I figured we could all have some fun at Powder Kings expense and hopefully waste a bit of their time with frivolous entries.

Hopefully they'll get off their wallets and hire a proper designer rather than offering 2 nights stay for spec work. Cheers Kids

Do you think Powder King needs a Powder Queen (http://images.icnetwork.co.uk/upl/mirror/sep2002/0/8/000A43E8-440A-1D80-B63D80BFB6FAFE6C.jpg)?

It's slightly derivative I admit..But I really think it'll synergise their brand awareness.

Here's something I whipped up in PS... Crown seems a bit big, but I didn't know how to resize it and still fit everything. Comments welcome. :)

Oh, I'm sorry -- were they going for that "family values" type of resort?
