  Google Doodles Competition
google doodle competition winner 2005Google in the United Kingdom is holding a competition for British school kids to have their art featured on the Google UK homepage for a day. Kids between 4 and 18 are asked to create a logo that represents what it means to be British. They will also get to travel to Google offices in California to help Dennis Hwang design a logo for the Google homepage.
Previous doodles by Hwang have celebrated the birthday of Vincent van Gogh, Frank Lloyd Wright, and many more here.
I think the logos are rather cool. It shows that a multi-billion dollar company can remain a little quirky and not take everything so seriously.
Dennis Hwang, Google's Master Doodler, said: "British kids are already using Google as a research and education tool. Now we are giving them the chance to use our homepage to talk to the rest of the world about their country and its values. I'm hoping we'll see some extremely imaginative and expressive designs. We certainly did last year."

The Google designs are always so clever and well integrated. It'll be nice to see what comes of this competition. Too bad it's not for the over 18 crowd too :)
 
Yeah, I would like to see an over 18s competition. And the winner gets a link on the Google.com homepage for a day! (I cant imagine how many visitors you would get from it!).
The winners from 2005 are online.
 
sounds great that the competition is worldwide. but is there only one winner per contest? google is a very wealthy company and considering that google will be "winning" thousands of great design ideas for free, it would seem that google could be more generous with its reward!
 
one of my 8th grade students entered the
google doodles competition last year and in the recent southern calif. fires lost his house and all his art work. he was wondering if google might still have his original entry? does anyone know how i could find that out? please help....it would mean so much to this kid....thanks
