Pictured Category Competition
There are a couple of plugins that allow to associate images with categories. The plugins mostly use the words “image” and not “logo” or “picture”.
Free Plugin “category images”
One plugin is called category images. It can set images for taxonomies like categories and tags.
However, to show the images, the PHP code has to be modified.
There is no direct integration in to wizards or archives. People are interested in the plugin, so there is a long discussion on the author’s explanation page.
The plugin has 50000+ installs
Paid plugin Category Featured Image
Envato offers the following features for $7, it is mostly concerned with thumbnails for posts (other plugin) and a category-specific override.

Apart from the excerpt, we will able to show for each post:

2. “Type Category Widget”:
For each post/page we will able to show either
There is no special treatment of the first post for widgets.
3. Type “Category Archive”
Nikolay proposed the following for each post in the archive.
My comment on this was that the blog admin should be able to decide if we wants this functionality. Hence an option if to show or not.
