Airsoft Ohio 2007 Shoulder Patch Design Contest!!

Hello all!

As many of you have been reading in other threads, Airsoft Ohio is looking for ways to be able to move to a better server in the near future, as well as to improve the forums and offer more to you, it's members. Unfortunately, as some things in life are not free, money is required to begin these changes.

To begin this process, Airsoft Ohio is looking for your help! Discussions have begun to center around having new Airsoft Ohio patches for the 2007 airsoft season. The patches will be made available during the spring of 2007 at the first of what we hope will become an annual Airsoft Ohio fund-raising event. We also hope to conduct future contests and have a yearly patch for Airsoft Ohio!

Airsoft Ohio is looking for talented artists to submit their ideas for a worthy patch. People can send in their submissions any time from now until December 15th, 2006. At that time, AO Staff and Moderators will choose 15-20 of the best entries that YOU, Airsoft Ohio's members, will vote for. Obviously, the patch with the most votes wins! After a patch is selected, it will go into production and will be available at the above mentioned Airsoft Ohio fund-raising event, with extra patches being available on a first come, first serve basis until they are gone. This will be a unique, one-time patch for the 2007 airsoft season and will show others that you proudly support Airsoft Ohio when you wear your patch on your airsoft uniform!

Your reward as the contest winner? One free patch, One free entrance into the 2007 Fund Raising Event, a Custom Rank on Airsoft Ohio, and the pride and renown of being selected to have your work immortalized in Airsoft Ohio's history. Sorry, but the $250,000 dollar reward is not available this season due to budgetary limitations.

All patch submissions MUST include, but are not limited to, the following:
  • Either an outline of the state of Ohio or The State of Ohio Flag.
  • The words "Airsoft Ohio"
  • The year "2007"
  • The words "Leadership - Safety - Knowledge"

The patch is preferred to be a subdued patch, so please limit your use of bright colors. The color minimum is the standard black and olive green that have been used in previous AO patches. You may add additional colors at your discretion. There are no shape requirements though entrees are expected to be relatively standard. Some standard patch shape examples are listed here (Thanks to Gertrude for finding this image!):


We will not accept any submissions that are in any way suggestive, obscene, vulgar, offensive, or which in any other way do not convey the ideals of Airsoft Ohio.
