The FreeCAD Project Asso­ci­a­tion (FPA)‘s Mis­sion is to sup­port and pro­tect the FreeCAD project. As an orga­ni­za­tion inde­pen­dent of the com­mu­ni­ty FreeCAD project, the FPA would like to have a logo that is visu­al­ly dis­tinct. To that end, we’ve launched a con­test on the FreeCAD Forum to design our logo. We are hop­ing that not only will this con­test yield a great-look­ing logo for the FPA, but it will serve as a tri­al run for this sort of devel­op­ment process. There are many things in FreeCAD, from its logo to the default back­ground col­or, that might ben­e­fit from hav­ing a selec­tion process in place where com­mu­ni­ty mem­bers can both sub­mit ideas and par­tic­i­pate in the selec­tion, and where no indi­vid­ual Main­tain­er has to make the deci­sion to merge on their own.

Did I men­tion there are prizes? As part of the selec­tion process, the design­ers of the logos that make it to the final vote will each receive a FreeCAD t‑shirt, and the design­er of the final logo will receive an hon­o­rar­i­um of $100 US as a thank you for putting in the time to help us bet­ter dis­tin­guish the FPA from FreeCAD itself.
