One good thing has come out of the furore over Auckland Super City: Auckland will be getting a new logo.

Aucklanders now have only one week to submit their entries to the ATA and be in to win the $10,000 prize and to have their logo emblazoned on everything from letterheads to the front of the Auckland Council building.
Bob Harvey, who is on the panel of judges said there have been many interesting entries. I wonder if he has seen this one which I got sent yesterday:
