Calling all members & friends!!

The WGA will be producing a 2010 WGA Geocoin for sale to all members and the general public. The sale of this coin will help raise funds to operate the WGA.

As with past WGA Geocoins we are going to turn the design of our coin over to the members and friends of the WGA!

Please try to draw up an idea (even with a pen or pencil is okay) to submit. All ideas/designs will be considered. We will be able to work with the vendor to make the final artwork ready for minting the coin, so we're just looking for a great design idea. Feel free to take a picture of your design if done with pen/pencil/colored pencils/crayons or scan it with a scanner. Your submission does not need to be drawn with a computer graphics program.

The design development and submission period will last 5 weeks ending on 4/16/2010 at 11:59PM. The winning design will be chosen by a public vote which will be open for voting for 2 weeks.

Please feel free to discuss and work out the details of your design ideas on the following ideas Forum thread: http://www.wi-geocaching.com/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&t=10622

Prizes
The winning design as voted on by the WGA membership and friends will be awarded (2) 2010 WGA Geocoins and (1) 2005 Limited Edition WGA Geocoin. The 2005 LE WGA Geocoin is a beautiful 2-tone metal finish and is an extremely limited geocoin. Only a small handful of people own this coin.

How to Enter
Once you feel your design is complete, please submit it via email to geocoin2010<at>wi<dash>geocaching<dot>com. (please replace the portions within < >'s with what you are reading -- this is done to prevent spam) All submissions will be posted to the following public contest submission thread: http://www.wi-geocaching.com/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&t=10623

Contest Rules:
- Open to all who wish to submit a design, including WGA friends, family of WGA members, WGA members, WGA BOD, and Coin Committee Members
- Multiple designs may be submitted per entrant.
- A unique design may only be submitted by a single entrant. No sharing of submissions please.

Design Requirements:
- The coin shape must be easily recognized as the State of Wisconsin
- The coin design must contain "WGA" or "Wisconsin Geocaching Association" somewhere on the design
- The coin design must be original and free of any copyright restrictions.
- The coin design must contain “Trackable on Geocaching.com" or “Track on Geocaching.com” and an area for the tracking number. This can be added later to the design but room should be allowed for it on the coin.

-- Updated 4/8/10 to change the contest submission deadline to 4/16.

There are a few nice designs posted in the "idea" thread. Take a look and post your comments.

Even if you only have a concept, feel free to post it. I'm sure one of the more artistic members would be happy to turn your idea into a design.

Unless I've missed it somewhere else, I have not seen how the winning design (or when) will be chosen.

My opinion is that submission 2 from March 29th is an awesome design that illustrates all the counties in Wisconsin to geocache in with recreational activities on the back - and is a real collectable type design. I couldn't imagine a more popular coin given the way some collect them.

Also, I think the coin would be even more appealing with a band at the bottom as in Submission 3 for the WGA logo keeping the front clean with only the counties on it... but again, if designs are final & a matter of selecting one - #2 would be my pick to buy a few of. Very Happy

The Referendum to vote for your favorite design is now available!

http://www.wi-geocaching.com/modules.php?name=Referendums

The voting period will be open until 11:59pm on May 4th.

These design concepts were submitted by WGA members and friends over the past 2 months.

** When voting, keep in mind that most of these are concepts, not finished art. Vote for the concept you like best.

The 2010 Geocoin Committee will work with the chosen coin vendor to finalize the winning design concept for minting.

I think that there should be a separate sticky announcement for this. I never saw it until it was posted in the Thread Stealer's. Coin Vote Now Open!
