Logo Contest for the Bombshell Battalion - Extended!

The Renegade Derby Dames are pleased to announce that the winner of the name the B Team contest was Janis Ramsay, whose name suggestion, the Bombshell Battalion won with 46.7% of the vote!  Congrats, Janis!!!

And now that we've got a new name, we need a logo to go with it!  The logo will be used online, in print, on merchandise to represent and promote the team.

The ability to resize easily and to look good on shirts done in the team colours: royal blue and orange, as well as on black and white, is a key requirement.  Also, for ease in printing on uniforms, it should only contain those colours. The final version of the logo will need to be suitable for high quality printing, but also look good at relatively small sizes.  It must include the words "Bombshell Battalion" and "Roller Derby" in a freely usable font.

Due to the requirements for high quality printing and re-sizing Entries must submitted in scalable vector graphic format (EPS). We advise against the use of halftones and gradients unless created inside a vector graphics program. Colour must be CMYK. JPG format copies are also requested so that entries can be posted without the need for conversion.  If the logo uses a non-standard font, it must be included with the entry, along with any copyright information for the font granting public use.

All submitted work must be original and not based on any pre-existing design. Entrants should take care to ensure that their entries are not in any way similar to existing logos or other copyrighted images.  (If you're looking for inspiration, you can check out the logos for WFTDA's member leagues here.)  By submitting a design, the entrant grants RDD full and complete assignment of the intellectual property rights, including copyright, trademark and/or patent interests.  All entries will become the sole property of the Renegade Derby Dames, and the entrant understands that the image may be re-worked to prepare it for use and that it may be displayed publicly on RDD web sites, even if it does not win.

Please submit your logo artwork for this amazing team by email by 11:59pm on Sunday, April 8. The winning logo will be selected by league-wide vote, and the winner will be announced on April 12th.  The contest winner will receive a Bombshell Battalion T-Shirt and two tickets to the Bombshell Battalion's first home bout, as well as a Surprise Pack of goodies from Rumbling Rage Derby Shop. 

Good luck, and thanks for your help!
