Thanks for the feedback. We have already approached a design agency and they have created some designs for us. We want the best logo possible hence why we are exploring all our options with the competition. It is also a way for our members, who we rely on as a not-for-profit organisation, to be involved.
Some very iconic images - for instance Steve Jobs in the Apple logo - have been created by amateur designers and students.

Speaking of.. this is a great quote from Steve Jobs about working with the great Paul Rand on the NeXT logo:
"I asked him if he would come up with a few options. And he said, “No. I will solve your problem for you. And you will pay me. And you don’t have to use the solution. If you want options, go talk to other people. But I’ll solve your problem for you the best way I know how. And you use it or not. That’s up to you. You’re the client. But you pay me.” And there was a clarity about the relationship that was refreshing."
