Tadpole Linux Announces Logo Design Competition

Jason Komar writes "Tadpole Linux is a LiveCD distribution based on Gentoo Linux. Its aim is to provide a Linux experience for use in elementary schools for grades Kindergarten to about Grade 6.

 As of yet, Tadpole Linux does not have a project logo, and so we would like to open up the logo design to the public.

 Competition Rules:


The logo chosen from the results of the design competition will become the main logo symbol for Tadpole Linux. It will appear on the web site, CD/DVD labels, printed matter, hardware equipment, etc.


  • The logo must be the original work of the submitter.
  • The logo design should be a vector graphic, not a bitmap image.
  • The logo must not exploit any person's gender, ethnicity, religion, morality, or culture.
  • The logo should relate to the aims of the project, i.e. geared toward K-6 elementary school students.

Each submission should contain the following and should be sent to <logo-competition@tadpolelinux.org>:

  • Submitter's full name and email address.
  • Description of the design/concept.
  • jpg or png thumbnail with a resolution of at least 400px by 400px.
  • High resolution print ready scalable vector format such as portable eps, svg, or Adobe Illustrator (ai).


The Tadpole Linux logo design competition is open to all designers, professional and non-professional. It is open to individuals only; participation cannot take place in a corporate or business capacity.
