Another reason condorcet voting is nice is that there is no need to group
"similar" items together. Condorcet voting eliminates the "spoiler
candidate" effect, so having N almost identical entries won't adversely
affect that "group" (by spreading out the votes for that "group" among more
"sub-entries" than for "groups" with only one entry in it).

So actually I don't understand whey the logos are grouped at all, they could
all just be listed individually, and then people can put them all at the
same rank ("make tie" in the interface) if they don't care which one of the
group they want, or they can differentiate between them if they like. You
could possibly name them "60 a", "60 b" etc. to indicate that they are
similar, but there's no reason not to allow people to differentiate between
them if tehy so choose.
