You may have noticed that Solar Voyager has a simple "paintbrush" icon associated with it, which is visible in certain browsers:



Here is the icon in an enlarged view:



We've had this icon for a long time -- In order to get an attractive new site icon for Solar Voyager, I've decided to have a contest.  The winner will have the honor of having his or her design become a part of the Solar Voyager website!

To enter, simply create a design that fits in a 16-by-16-pixel image and upload it in a reply to this post as a GIF, JPEG or PNG image.  You may also want to upload a 64-by-64-pixel version (as I did above) so that the design can be seen easier by people reading the topic.

The deadline for entries is midnight, September 30, 2008.  A blue-ribbon panel (the Solar Voyager Administration staff!) will judge all entries and pick one that reflects Solar Voyager's focus on space art.  We'll have the winning entry announced by October 5.

Creating a good 16-pixel-square icon will be challenging!  Good luck!

Alright, I've finally got something that I think is good enough. There's a big difference between making favicons and space scenes.





Here's hoping!
