    Thanks @Azur, generally a refreshing look I have to admit, though #51 is very similar to what @galalogo submitted at #16. Also, they still very much focus on the RSS symbol only and as I mentioned a few times incorporating the logo is perfectly fine, using it as sole foundation for the icon is not so much desired.

    Thanks for the continuous submission, @galalogo, I certainly appreciate it. But I can't help sensing a certain random nature. How is this icon supposed to related to news or a news reader or information? It reminds me of a balloon or maybe something bee-hive related, but I wouldn't immediately connect with aforementioned setting.

    Again, thanks a lot for that entry, but I wouldn't mind some context :)

    #42 the lower part of the design incorporates the meaning of news/RSS and the upper part is an arrow which overall says that its the best place for an RSS read.

    I just noticed that my entries 58 and 59 are similar to an earlier entry by Kraman. I will respectfully withdraw them from consideration.

    • #57: @DianaGyms, thanks. Takes certainly a different approach but it reminds me of a cable (charging related or similar)
    • #58 & #59: @Altruist Design, thank you. Not bad but your remark regarding the similarities and the withdrawal is duly noted
    • #60: @logoexpert, not bad actually.
    • #61: @logoexpert, thanks but a bit the same issue as mentioned in #45. The speech bubble would rather suggest a chat application.
    • #62: @galalogo, thank you but could you elaborate on the intended meaning? Seems like an arrow or a rocket.
    • #63: @Azur, thank you, generally trying to stay away from the bird concept but this one is actually not bad.
    • #64: @kraman.157, thanks. Not bad as a concept, but it gives somewhat of a signalling impression.
    • #68: @galalogo, thank you too, but I am still a bit unsure how it would relate to RSS :)
    • #70: @Altruist Design, thanks again,

    The contest will finish in a bit more than 24 hours and a winner should be announced shortly thereafter as well as whether the winning entry will be eventually used (on which the payout of course depends).

    There are quite a few great entries here (you can clearly tell the talent) but I do have to admit I haven't completely fallen in love with one particular entry yet, so it will be a very tough call and there is still plenty of chances for entries (I know, I must be a designer's nightmare :))

    Just to provide already some preliminary feedback on the top contenders so far.
    These are for now probably the closest ones to "top contenders", but a final decision will of course only be made once the contest has finished
    • #26
    • #52
    • #58 (still would require tweaking because of mentioned similarities)
    • #60
    • #63

    @kraman.157, my apologies for missing them out.

    #67 is covered by #66, so I will only cover #66. The concept is actually not bad, as I do recognise the connection between the (which I presume it should should symbolise) and the news reading part and if you looks carefully one will also notice the RSS symbol.

    The only thing is, the eye concept makes me think more of something surveillance related. At the same time, as the whole symbol uses the RSS symbol style, that part somewhat blends in and disappears.

    Concept not bad, maybe a bit too abstract and a tad too line-y

    Thank you @galalogo

    The contest will finish in about seven hours, so please get any last minute submissions in before that. A winner (and the eventual usage decision) will be announced within 24 hours after the contest finished.
