Chilean metals mining company Eco Exploration today announced the postponement of its logo competition judging date due to fewer than expected entries having been received over the festive period.
Jan. 21, 2013 - CEO at Eco Exploration Mr. Andrew Davis has extended the company’s logo design competition deadline, despite many excellent designs having been received, citing that few were received over the festive period, and have only begun to flood in over these past seven days.
Whilst the board of directors has already reviewed and scored many of the designs submitted, they have unanimously agreed an amended closing date for submission, and award ceremony date of February 20th and 29th respectively, in order that the minimum agreed quota of 500 designs maybe received prior to judgment.
With the exception of the deadline extension Mr. Davis claims there are to be no additional amendments to the rules, prize or other competition factors.
"We simply feel that as so many entries are now being received daily, it would be unfortunate for us to fall short of the agreed quota of 500 designs, which we fully expect to have received within 30 days."
Andrew Davis, CEO
Despite having reviewed many designs already, Mr. Davis declined to offer feedback on those submissions on the basis that this would be considered unfair to those who had met the original deadline. He did however wish to reiterate his earlier statements
"Eco Exploration is undergoing growth and change and would benefit from a new symbol to reflect its progress. The current logo is based upon the Chilean flag with the three sides representing the tri-layer process of extraction, production and distribution of minerals."
-Logos are to be submitted via email to firstname.lastname@example.org, in .JPG or PDF format only.
-Logos must be original and different to the current logo
-The amended deadline for all logo submissions will be February 20th, 2013 by 5:00 p.m. CLST.
