    We need some high-res images for OCAU awards, as awarded during reviews and so forth. Basically, something that uses the existing australia-with-ring logo, says "OCAU Recommended!" and that contains our URL in a form that will be readable when the logo is printed quite small (ie, side of motherboard box etc). An "OCAU Highly Recommended!" one would be good too, distinguished from the normal Recommended one by being prettier or something.

    Person with the best submissions gets, umm, the admiration of your peers, a tin of chocolate penguin mints, a tin of normal penguin mints and a pile of AMD promotional stuff that Plus Corporation were nice enough to give us recently. There's a mug, a pen, a tshirt (M or XL only) and a funky little screwdriver/toolkit thing as well as a folder full of product info about Opteron and wotnot.

    I'll organise some consolation prizes for good images we don't end up using immediately. Note that OCAU will retain ALL RIGHTS to use images submitted in this thread and the only payment/royalty you will receive is the prizes if you win.

    Time is of the essence as we need these images pretty much immediately, so you have a couple of days at most. If you don't know what kind of logos I mean, look at the end of some reviews on other websites and look at the side of your motherboard box etc. Those little logos!

    Edit: here is a highish res copy of the logo. no we don't have one without the text, sorry.

    Yes, those kind of magazine awards are the same deal really.

    No, you have to come to my house wearing a chicken suit to collect your prize. :) Of course, we'll post them anywhere in the world.

    Not usually the one to try these things, but I was a little bored, so here it is:

    Of course, I imagine the final image Agg wants will be smaller, however, it seems to work fine even down to 100 pixels wide, and probably smaller.

    edit: just added the Highly Recommended entry.
