Subject Re: Logo Contest Update - The Final Days
Date Fri, 30 Sep 2005 15:17:58 GMT
Based on the criteria below I think the following images meet the 

Entry # 2   URL:
Entry # 3   URL:
Entry # 4   URL:
Entry # 9   URL:
Entry # 12  URL:
Entry # 13  URL:
Entry # 14  URL:
Entry # 15  URL:
Entry # 16  URL:

Links that need to be discussed:
These entries use a headdress (which is a bunch of feathers).
Entry # 7   URL:
Entry # 10  URL:
Entry # 11  URL:

My personal preference on these is that they should be allowable.  I 
prefer to judge based on merit.  I think these are tastefully done.  We 
need a ruling of the PRC on these.

Links that are not compatible with the parameters established below:
Entry # 6   URL:
Entry # 16  URL:

Links that no longer are functional and could not be verified:
Entry # 5   URL:
Entry # 8   URL:
