Preparations for the openSUSE.Asia Summit are rolling. As we are busy prepping ourselves for this big event, we realized that we need a logo for our very own Summit. Following tradition, we are back with the logo contest. We are looking for a logo which best reflects openSUSE and its community in Asia. The contest is open now and ends on 19 September **__2015**. We will send a “Geeko Mystery Box” as an appreciation for the best logo designed.

The Rules of the Contest are as follows:

We will accept only SVG format for original design.

Both color and monochrome(black and white) version are required as part of your submission.

The elements of your design should reflect the openSUSE community in Asia.
