iGame Radio has extended the deadline for its Logo Contest to May 22, 2009, and included information about some of the prizes available. Launched in February, the logo contest seeks those with an "itch to draw, paint, or move those pixels to create the right design for a new logo for the iGame Radio podcast." The prize package includes offerings from MusicSkins and PopCap Games. As more prizes are added to the package, they will be included on the website.

When iGame Radio first started in summer of 2005, I needed a logo but didn’t have the money to get one done professionally. I wanted something that connected to the gaming side of things while at the same time hit upon the whole “i” part as well. I utilized a font that gave off gaming “vibes” and used an “eye” that I had photoshopped from one off the web.

But iGame Radio is going through some changes, (soon a new website and perhaps a new focus), and I’d like a new logo to go with it. But I’m cheap…thus, a logo contest with cool prizes!

To create a logo for iGame Radio that reminds those viewing it of gaming, while at the same time connects in some way to the name of the podcast. To have fun, get prizes, and earn some ‘net cred for your work.

Must include the name “iGame Radio” within the logo. Must be readily viewable in a smaller format, such as iPhone, thumbnails, or favicons (or at least, for that last one, easily edited to the size, and still maintain the ideas of the logo). Must work in low resolution as well. All fonts and artwork used must either be available under a free license or the creator’s own that s/he is licensing to me for the purposes of the logo. And do remember that the logo is necessary for both the web and print…not all fonts look good in both.

$500 prize package. Prizes so far are worth $250:
• 10 free skins from MusicSkins
• PopCap Games Deluxe gaming package:
• 1 copy of Peggle Dual Shot (DS)
• 1 copy of Peggle (Mac)
• 1 copy of BookWorm (Mac)
• 1 copy of Bejeweled 2 (Mac)
• 1 copy of Zuma (Mac)
• 1 PopCap gaming mug
