We have 4 winners: Have a look at aisafety.art !
Notes on the votes, regarding feedback from the community:
I used STAR voting to process the votes, as some people kindly pointed out, and I also made sure by grouping the votes of logo variations that designs with many variations are not disadvantaged.
EDIT: vote here: http://vote.aisafety.art from 1st July - 14th July '23 11pm UCT
and see page aisafety.art
EDIT: received all submissions, timeframe for voting will be delayed by about 2 weeks as one of the organisers wanted to add more designs from a different source to the voting pool, but this won't affect prize distribution. (19th June 2023)
EDIT: extended deadline is Saturday May 27th 2023 11:59 PM UTC
This contest is about creating a logo to represent AI safety research.
I’m being supported by an independent funder and people from nonlinear.org and am taking care of administration and communication.
We’re doing an open process (voting) and want to involve different people through the contest to get a better logo design and to increase the chances of adoption.
1) rough concept ideas contest
deadline: May 15th 2023
We’re looking for different quick and great design ideas for this round. Not everything has to be spot on yet, this will be done in 2) and 3) .
Submit as many rough logo design ideas as you want as a .PNG and .SVG file to this Google Form: https://forms.gle/6fwVYbPBrqVdCHax6
2) feedback & voting on best design ideas chosen by jury
Via another Google Form, this post will be updated with the link once there’s a selection by the jury of 5 - 10 contest submissions available.
With a $ 1.5k prize pool for the best design ideas from the contest which are being used further, this might be one design or multiple as decided by the votes & the jury, with the prize money spread out evenly.
We’re open for someone to increase the prize pool, please send me an email!
3) polishing of winning design(s)
We’ll hire a great designer for creating the final logo from the winning design(s).
After the completion of the contest the final logo will be publicly available for free use at www.aisafety.art .
If you have any questions please reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I’d like to disclose here that I’m also trying to enter an idea myself, however I won’t be able to decide on my own which designs are considered for polishing.
Composition of the jury: two people from Nonlinear, an independent funder, me (Adrian Cipriani)
