What are contests? What are the rules of the contests?
The rules are very simple. Contest holders launch a competition and publish a brief, i.e. contest?s directives, give their expectations, the prize for the winner and the deadline.
When you enter our Service you can see a list of competitions here. If there is any that interests you - read it?s brief carefully, check all the details such as deadlines etc. If the prize is attractive to you and you think that you are able to submit your work on time - do not wait, join the contest.
You can submit your completed work by clicking ?take part in the contest?
You can upload all the source files. The contest holder as well as other designers can access only the preview of your work, which is secured with a watermark. The contest holder cannot access your source files until your creation wins the competition.
After uploading your work, it is moderated and goes through quality control process. We check whether it fulfills our technical and aesthetic criteria. If your work passed the moderation and quality control process, it will appear on the website in the ?contests? section. If there is something wrong with the creation, you will be quickly informed about the reason via e-mail.
When uploading your work, you have to decide whether you want, in case you do not win the contest, your creation to appear in the Marketplace for sale. If you wish to do it, you will be asked to upload your work with all the contest holder?s materials and signs removed. You also will have a price for which you want your creation to be sold at (the price will not be visible before the contest ends. If you do these, the preview of your work will appear in the Marketplace after the winner is awarded. Only the designer of the creation can access source files in the Marketplace. You can always change the price or remove your work from the Marketplace anytime you want (this needs to be done in the instance where you sell your creation outside the platform).
Participating in a contest, you have to be aware that you cannot remove your work from it. Submitting your creation is making a trade agreement (in terms of Civil Code). Before you join a competition, make sure your work does not break the Regulations and you are the owner of its copyrights.
