the idea was not that ffmpeg developers submit logos but that non
developers do who dont have to decide between doing this or doing that
for ffmpeg.

yes, also there still are several per month (not per season) logos
for some autumn/winter months from herve. And i remember thilo wanted
to draw some for random other non season occasions.

IMHO doing another seasonal logo contest is a bad idea. We have
many seasonal logos already that we can use and i imagine it must
dead boring for artists to draw the same thing again as a submission.

instead i would suggest we add a simple link somewhere where people
can submit logos about any theme they like and at any time they like
(trac is the obvious submission method here)

and we then just put the logos up on the right occasions, ommiting
inappropriate ones
