    • Raster entries must have a minimum size of 2100
    • Optional: 24, 48, 256


  • Entrant retains copyright? (We do this for source contributions, but may depend on the license we choose.)
  • Entrant must be an individual? (SVG logo contest did this)
  • Entry will be licensed under TBD license
  • Entry must be original, contain no work owned by a 3rd party
  • Entries must use contest template (which has various sizes/background colors) and be submitted as a 24-bit PNG
  • Entries will be judged by WebKit reviewers as of start of contest announcement


  • Prefer open and/or vector format
  • Consider monochrome, CMYK
  • Can have multiple color schemes in one entry

Judging Criteria

  • ???


  • Voting will occur for a specified period after submission period (1 week duration?)
  • Simple web-based voting
    • Votes are per email address
    • Can amend your votes as many times as you want before voting period ends
  • Voting system TBD
  • Voting open to public? (Would be nice as a tie-breaker)
  • Only reviewers' votes will be considered initially
  • Possible tie breakers
    • Public votes (if voting open to public)
    • Vector over raster?
    • Need a tie breaker that can't be a draw


  1. Run contest guidelines by webkit-dev for feedback
  2. Put contest page on w/ guidelines+rules
