    2022 Holiday Logo Contest

    I'd like to invite everyone to submit a logo for the 2022 Holiday Logo Contest.

    It's not really a contest. If your logo meets the requirements it will be posted forever here: https://www.massassi.net/holiday/

    And will be in the main page logo rotation for the month of December.

    Images must be Star Wars and Holiday related. Any holiday really. Please put in some effort, though!

    Original logo image is 384px × 154px (?????). You can submit one in that size, or any size up to 1000 pixels wide and 300 pixels tall. Hopefully whatever size you choose will look good on the main page.

    You can submit a logo in any of the following ways:

    • post it in this thread
    • post it in the #showcase channel on our discord
    • send it to me in an email

    Please include the name/nickname you want listed on the holiday logos page.

    Thank you for reading and hopefully for participating!

    Looking back through the archives there are some great logos there, I'd also totally forgotten how many I made.

    Can we get them on the forum again or is that too much work?

    I'm not sure if it looks the way it's supposed to but the holiday logos are displaying on the forums now. At least on the default (Massassi Forest) style.

    Here's my very first attempt at a holiday logo. With help from stable diffusion / huggingface.co. (somewhat blurred by the forums I guess)

    That archive is amusing. In 2004 there were 89 logos submitted, 20 of which came from "Steve". And there was some guy named "Darth Slaw".

    Oops I mean 03. Check out some of these old ones though. WTF does this even mean? :p

    Oh, and there was no contest in 2018, so I guess Christmas was cancelled that year.

    The communist thing was a meme that I think was going around the whole internet. I have no idea about that second one. I've seen it pop up before and was like... "wth?" haha

    The second one derives from this newspost, but I could have sworn the logo was made by ECHOMAN as well: https://www.massassi.net/news_archive_2012-12.html

    I have absolutely no idea what the context of that echoman post was.

    You have no idea how happy it makes me that someone else on earth managed to use the new news archive search/whatever feature!

    Here's my contribution

    It's more of a scene than a logo, I was never very good at logos. Rendered in Blender using Cycles. Click image for larger version.

    *edit: terrible at using these forums, new user here, first time I uploaded a png and it killed the quality turning it into a jpg, so I uploaded a higher quality jpg which stuck, but for some reason the post has both versions, please use the higher quality version!

    Holy cow, I just realized it's 5.2MB!! Maybe that's why we had all the original rules about file sizes and animations, etc. For the future, will you try to keep it much smaller? Thank you!

  24. #24
    Oops. Yeah, I can make them a bit smaller. Would you like a smaller version of this one?

    Following in the tradition of Christmas logos that make no sense, I present this offering:

    Thanks! I posted it up. If anybody submits more, I probably won't get to it until towards the end of the month. The logos will rotate until Jan 1.

    I never thought that far ahead. At this point I'm thinking that if it's around for another 25 years, I may not be. Need to figure out some contingency plan.

    Hmm. Hope so and I hope you'll be a content old man.
