This logo should include the Blessed Virgin Mary and a football (American Football)
Also, the image/icon should be able to function on its own... with or without the text "Our Lady of Victory Football Camp".
Please see the attached logo for St. Norbert College... it's really strong, bold, and yet simple... the lines look great in print, web, and apparel. If we could create an image of Mary that resembles that style, that would be fantastic. Also attached is a local Catholic Shrine (It's decent, but maybe a little too soft and simple).
A note about text emphasis... I'd like to emphasize the words "Our Lady" & "Victory" more than the words "Football Camp" (the word "of" can be smaller than all the other words in the mark)
CONTEST MANAGEMENT NOTE:
I just wanted to communicate how I manage my contests on 99designs.
Since I like to create contests that offer a higher, guaranteed prize, I tend to follow the following strategy... hopefully you'll understand my point of view.
1. Any logos that don't follow/reflect the details in the brief (ex. logo must contain the Blessed Virgin Mary and an American football) will be eliminated.
2. Any logos that are created with images that appear to be more than 50% clip art will be eliminated.
3. I HIGHLY value your time and mine. Out of respect for our time, initially I will only give feedback via "stars" to identify the logos that I like the most. Unless I'm really excited about a logo, I will not ask you to invest more time revising your design. Personally, I don't believe contest holders should request that designers make a bunch of revisions unless they are really serious and excited about the original design. As the contest progresses over the next few days, I will start contacting the designers of my favorite submissions.
I look forward to seeing how this logo contest continues to progress.
Thanks in advance for your interest and creative efforts! --Tom
