MICROWIKI – Micronational artists have a chance to leave their mark on one of the more active community forums as MicroWiki has begun a six-week competition to replace its current logos.
“The current logo is a bit rubbish,” said Kit McCarthy, its creator, tongue-in-cheek. “Everyone uses that same globe icon.”
So what’s in a logo, in the eyes of the MicroWiki administration team? The successful submission will be “stylish, clean and modern, but quirky and distinctive” according to the competition guidelines published by McCarthy. Whether the logo appears on the forums or on the wiki, it must maintain a consistent brand image. Importantly, the logo cannot be interpreted as politically-biased or micronation-specific. For those with a festive personality, the submission may also include seasonal variations, such as for Christmas.
Everyone with an interest is eligible to enter the competition by October 1. Each entry must include a forum header image, a wiki logo, and a favicon.
The MicroWiki administration team will prune submissions down to a shortlist that will ultimately go to a public vote, though a timeframe has not been published for that phase as of press time.
