Contest Who are the best contest holders?

Discussion in 'Design Contests' started by Spoiltdiva, Jun 15, 2019.

    It's high time we had a thread like this so that we can nominate our favorite contest holder. By doing this we can motivate all holders to do better.
    I feel at present that @evershawn has taken the lead here. Feel free to nominate or congratulate other contest holders who you feel deserve accolades and some recognition. Or you can simply agree with me.:)

    I may at some point in time in the near future start a thread pertaining to bad contest holders. Those who don't pay or those who post $5 contests etc.

    Actually, I nominate @Prune !! Although I didn’t win with him before but always gives feedbacks and appreciate all the designers and always shows respect and the most important he respects the deadlines not like others who says 48 h contests then lasts for weeks or forget it!!

    I totally agree with you. (I believe he is from Ireland) He is respectful to the designers and has a good attitude.

    Very good list, I don't think anyone could dispute that. I believe one day I will post a thread in which I will invite contest holders to nominate their favorite designers. I have a hunch your name would be on their list.;)

    There are a couple of names on your list that I'm not familiar with. But I will agree that finishing the contest is everything. I hate it when the thing closes and the winner is not announced. It always leaves me with the feeling that perhaps no one got paid, and the contest holder received the design for nothing.:oops:

    Great list, it's nice when contest holders receive credit like this. Are there any other designers who wish to give a shout out to worthy contest holders?
    P.S. There is one contest holder on your list who shall remain nameless that I don't care for. This member at times comes off like a drill sergeant barking orders to the designers. In fact it got so bad once that I felt compelled to chastise with a post. But at least this holder holds lots of contests, and does provide income to designers.

    If I'm not wrong I think you are talking about contest holder whose name starts with a "S" :)

    You are very smart.;) But let's not mention any names here. We don't want to insult any contest holders, in fact we need to encourage them. I've decided not to create a name and shame thread in the future. After all, in life we can catch more bees with honey than we can with vinegar.

    In truth I was wondering why this contest holder had been left out of the equation. He appears to be very considerate and respectful to the designers.

    Feel free to post a shout out to any other contest holders that you think deserve it at any time here on this thread. Perhaps those who are not mentioned will try harder by offering higher paid contests in the future.;)

    Is there going to be a winner, and how much does the winner get paid? :)

    The "winner"(s) will be our designers overall. I honestly believe that most contest holders will read this and be motivated to up their game as to the payoffs, and up their game as to offering respect to the designers.(most do)
    I just felt it was time to get the ball rolling in the right direction. (Don't tell anybody) but......I'm attempting to get 4 or 5 regular contest holders to stop being so miserly...shhhhhh!;)
