Yes my main concern is having tickets with generic names
(e.g. "summertime logo") which give no indication about when the
ticket can be considered "closed", and I tend to be pretty "puristic"
(pedantic?) when terminology is abused and leads to confusion.

Anyway I'm fine with whatever the logo/contest "maintainer" will
choose, provided that it is clear when a ticket should be considered
closed, thus avoiding to pollute the already large space of open

Also I wanted to stress the advantage of having a single ticket per
contest (trackability, single point of information, easier artifact
upload, etc.).
