[[!meta title="Tails launches a logo contest"]]
On the 29th of April, we will release Tails 1.0. This will be an important symbolic milestone about 5 years after our [[first public releases|news/version_0.2]].
We want to have a great logo by then to give Tails the visual impact it deserves. The [image](https://tails.net/lib/tails-logo-round.png) and banner we have been using so far don't really do the job anymore...
So we're starting a contest for designers to create a logo for Tails. We have already brainstormed on the idea, and received some great proposals [[!tails_ticket 5797 desc="in the past"]]. Still, we had a hard time making our collective mind on a single proposal, and wanted to give more people a chance.
Free licence, compatible with GPL3+.
Source in SVG format.
An image with an approximate 1:1 ratio, like the [onion logo](https://media.torproject.org/image/www-images/onion.jpg).
Plus the same image along with the "Tails" word either:
merged with the image as in the [Tor logo](https://media.torproject.org/image/www-images/tor-logo.jpg);
on the side of the image.
The "Tails" name must be spelled with an uppercase "T" only, and lowercase "ails".
The image should convey the ideas behind Tails: secrecy, privacy, anonymity, mystery, simplicity (Tails is ready-to-use).
The logo has to be a bit serious, but not sad.
Until now we reuse the colors from Tor (green and purple), but this can be changed.
We cannot reuse directly the Tor or Debian logo, but evoking it is ok (use Tor colors, or evoking the Debian swirl).
The image should be suited to print on nice stickers that people want to have on their computers, and on t-shirts that people are happy to wear.
Make sure that the fonts that you use are compatible with GPL3+. To be on the safe side, use [fonts available in Debian main](http://pkg-fonts.alioth.debian.org/review/debian-font-review.html), otherwise we will ask you to prove their compatibility with GPL3+.
Complementary materials
As the logo will be used in quite different places, we encourage you to submit complementary materials. These are not strict requirements but will help us evaluate your proposal better. Besides, if your logo is chosen, we will need them anyway before we are able to put it to use publicly.
