Just to be clear, this contest is for a serious alternative to the Windows 8 logo. To win the $300 prize, it must be a "serious" alternative to the Windows 8 logo.
However, since we all love a little fun, we figured we would also offer a $150 prize to the funniest logo. This will be a "separate" contest.
There will be public voting up shortly for both contests. You just have to give us a little time to go through all 700+ entries :)
Stay tuned and thanks everyone!
