Announcing the Winner of our Logo Contest
The SAC is pleased to announce the winner of our logo contest, Santiago Morante! We narrowed the submissions down to five (which wasn't easy), and put the vote out publicly. We received about 100 votes in total, and it was quite a close race with so many great submissions. The winning design, as well as the second and third place winners, are shown below. Thank you all so much for taking the time to participate.
This was our first time running this sort of competition, so if you have any feedback for us on running the contest, voting, etc., please let us know.
