    Hey folks --

    Just thought you might be interested in an icon design contest for an organization I helped start. We're trying to create a universal icon that everyone can use on their blog posts whenever the post is a serious commentary about a paper published in a peer-reviewed journal, and not just a link to a press release or media commentary.

    This should help separate the truly thoughtful blog posts from the mindless drivel that populates the internet.

    The best bit is the prizes -- if you like science, you'll love these:

    * A free subscription to Seed Magazine, a ScienceBlogs coffee mug, and a copy of Natalie Angier’s The Canon
    * A subscription to the journal Nature
    * A PLoS coffee mug and PLoS ONE T-shirt
    * A 1GB USB data key and a travel mug
    * A subscription to the CAB Abstracts bibliographic database

    All that just for designing three icons!

    Given the recent rule clarifications about competitions here and even touting for non-spec work, I think I had better lock this and edit out your links. Sorry 'bout that, just trying to be consistent.

    See this thread for further details.
