AppFuse Logo Contest - win an iPod

I need a logo for AppFuse. I don't care if it has the name "AppFuse" in it or if it's just an icon sort-of-thing. I'm primarily looking to replace the default icon on - but good project logos are always cool. Hopefully it will imply what AppFuse is (a jumpstart kit for java webapps), but I'm more keen on a good-looking design that anything. I'll buy the winner an iPod mini. If you have a logo you'd like to submit, please upload it to my wiki using the "Attach File..." link at the bottom of the page.

Update: Wow - there's already 8 entries in 24 hours! Sweet! I think I'll end the contest next Thursday, (the 24th) and announce a winner on Friday evening.

I'd love to have one done by the 25th of June. Of course, I'll probably leave it open until I get one I like. If I get a bunch of 'em, then I'll set a deadline.

Pimeto - I'm looking for a logo for my open-source AppFuse project. AppFuse is used to kickstart the creation of new webapps in Java. The real power in it is that it vastly accelerates the beginning of a webapp project. Hope that helps. If not, maybe someone else has a better description. ;0)

You could also checkout the existing entries.

Any thoughts on the entries so far? How many times can one enter??? Surprising number of entries in only 24 hours. You should go to or places like that and post your contest in a few forums. You'll get more artiste's than programmers like your average blog reader is...

Good idea Gerry - I just submitted a new submission at If you know of other good spots - let me know or feel free to post it yourself. ;-)

Well, I could tell you tons of places to post the contest, but since I'm going to win, it's really a moot point....
