Ruby Logo Contest

Hi,

Ruby Visual Identity Team (URL:http://rubyidentity.org/) did great
works to
improve the online presence of Ruby, and as a result, the Ruby logo kit
(
URL:http://rubyidentity.org/ruby-logo-kit.zip) is avaiable now. But
it’s not
well known as a logo that represent the programming language Ruby
itself.

We need an official Ruby logo to promote Ruby, so we open a contest to
select

  • you may use the Ruby logo kit (<URL:http://rubyidentity.org/
    ruby-logo-kit.zip>)

How to submit

Please mail your logo to ruby-logo(at)ruby-lang.org. You should include
the
following information to it.

  • your full name
  • your e-mail address

It’s even more if you have an account in Japan and can spend it there!
It’s a very nice amount!

Sorry, it was a wrong address. The correct address is
ruby-logo(at)ruby-assn.org (not ruby-lang.org).

Just wondering whether anyone had heard more about the contest. Was a
winner chosen?
