Mystery entry to PACE competition: pants or prize-worthy?

Following not for profit organisation PACE launching a competition to create a new logo as part of its rebrand as the Birmingham Publicity Association (BPA), one entry has left an impression.

The design was put forward by a mysterious ‘Mr X’ – although frequent commenter on The Drum Mr X has vehemently denied that it was him.

Unfortunately, the competition is only open to design students and professionals living in the West Midlands area (and we're not sure that genitals make a great logo), so if the phantom Mr X is not unmasked The Drum isn’t sure that the talented entry will be able to make the shortlist. We have some ‘golden rules’ of our own: in fact, we have heard that PACE chairman Steve Price is very much like The X Factor’s Louis Walsh.

If you think you can create a better - preferably non-penis related - logo, enter the competition for the chance to win a year’s free membership of the BPA, entry into the 2012 Cream Midlands Awards, a year’s subscription to The Drum, and an iPad.

For more information on the competition and details on how to enter, see our original article.
