3. The source file in vector format (.ai) is required.

4. The logo shall have a monochrome, contour, and inverse version. 

5. The logo shall represent the following keywords: technology, global problems, community.

6. The color palette is at the author's discretion;

Dear Participants,
You created very good logos, that way our experts are still choosing the winners. I apologize for the delay.

Hey everyone,

I've realised that the link to my submission is wrong, it redirects to one file instead of the project's folder.
I've sent an email to support in order to fix that. In the meantime, you can check my proposition here: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0BxNeHF2oyHvfU3lYaDNOTnNZNU0

Amazing project BlockStars, I hope you'll find a logo that suits you!
