As a freelance designer I have been posting designs to this worst ever site and what they do is to remove your designs when you receive high ratings.

A few of our real estate agent clients have used DesignContest.com in the past, with very positive results. When I reached out to them to discuss becoming an affiliate partner, Sharie responded promptly with more information than I even requested, and a step by step guide for our clients. Excellent service all the way around.

Scam ! Totally fake contest and content .. Understand my words which is 100% true and proven but nobody talks .. even the 5 stars rates are mostly fake ! Let me tell you how this website works .. They have less traffic and contests holders by the times .. so what they can do ? what they did ? They created accounts and started fake contests (guaranteed / no guaranteed) so what can happen ? designers start working hours and hours doing their best to make a living or win a contest .. then the Fake contests holder just disappear .. with no feed back or payments .. or maybe just little feedback to make it looks legit .. then designers had to enter the long endless cycle of voting system to win a contests .. let me say or copy how they deal abandoned contests and how they consider a contest abandoned :
A contestholder has 30 days to decide what to do with their contest once it goes expired. If the contest stays expired past 30 days it is considered abandoned. Sometimes a client will Abandoned a contest on purpose other times Life gets in the way and the contest was forgotten about.. There are many reasons why a contest will become abandoned.
It's said 30 days right ? If there's any option I can upload screenshots of abandoned contests for 3 , 4 or even 6 months ! after hard working the designers had to wait months to know the results ! let me tell you why .. first of all they misuse designers by creating these fake contests so they start getting too much traffic and trust for both designers and contests holders .. so maybe there will be one or two legit contests monthly which by the time will be much money they can pay for the voted abandoned contest ! that's why they can't stick to the rules the put ! they don't respect designers anyone talks about this in the forums they ban him for a month or delete his topic and maybe he'll lose his account ! Look how dirty designcontest team is ! and if they replied they tell you that the clients return after months and say they've stole his money .. so the rules are fake ? and all you care about is the contestholders ? while your whole website worth nothing without good designers ! telling them not to speak in this topic and work on another contest lol ! I know great designers there who entered more than 10 contests and all of them are expired and abandoned !! If any designers from there saw my review will relate .. so please both clients and designers don't waste your time or money there it's a fake and not respectful platform to do your business .. and I'll do my best to make this end even suing them and reporting them to search engines and marking it as scam.

+ nice portfolio page solution with behance connection and a possibility to upload own files.
- Very little contests in comparison to other sites,
- jam-packed submissions page making the contest page look crowded,
- poor client-designer communication solutions (on default comments posted with designs are visible to all designers, who feel free to steal it, rework it, tweak it, you name it)
- endless winner selection time (I mean, a month, two months, as long as you want). This is highly irritating to a designer.

Be Careful cheating by fake designers.
Please attention for real designers,dont submit your contest into open contest,
so many cheaters are there,
they just wait and see the highest rating given from owner of the contest ,and they submit similar designs like yours.
and maybe more better than yours , and bumpthey won the contest..
i just care about many designers,they spent a lot time,and their day to think about their idea.
its so suck when cheating by fake designers.
i just give bad comment into fake designer,and leave protest to fake designerand i got my infraction..(greatlol.)
i think this site didnt think about real designers privacy and their ideas.
if this site care,,this site need to protect from cheaters and make all the contest hide by one to another.
dont show up the submissions,just owner can see it..
enjoy your day

I ran over 10 contest with them . In my last 2 contests I never received email stating that I am loosing the deadline for refund frame. They are doing best the keep money and not to refund you ! There is better websites than them that will not keep your money.

Having my logo created by one of the many talented designers that submit to Design Contest was a fantastic experience. I received over 200 designs and had a difficult time deciding on the final winner, because I received so many great designs. I have already recommended the site to some other people that I know are looking to have designs created. Everyone involved was professional and handled things quickly..
I need a little help with the process, contacted support through the phone and live chat, The support team is absolutely wonderful. Support was patient and very helpful! Gave me step by step instructions on the whole process from starting my contest to choosing my winner. I highly recommend this website to anyone needing any type of design. I will use designcontest.com again and again!

This website is the best! This site has different levels of designers from beginners to to very seasoned designers. My contest had over 300 entries,I paid $275.00 and had my first entries within a couple of hrs.The hardest thing was choosing my new logo, but in the end I have a new logo and it is now being made in to our new marquee sign. I had No problem receiving my design files and even have an AI and eps file for my print company and sign company. I can work directly with my winning designer or any designer I want with an option called a one on one project.
The staff at designcontest.com is wonderful, extremely helpful. I used the help phone several times when starting my contest and as my contest was ending, the support staff helped me with writing my brief, advised me on how to get the most out of my contest, they walked me through how to give feedback and rate my contest entries as well as why it is important to have this interaction with the designers in my contest. The advice they gave me was top notch! These people know what they are doing. I will be using designcontest.com for all my design needs,
I have used other sites like 99 designs but found those sites very hard to work with and the designers constantly used clipart and designs form other designers. The staff on the other sites do not even come close to the staff at designcontest.com. If you ever need ANY design work go to designcontest.com, The site is easy to use as well.

I have used this companies services 3 times and all 3 times were great! If you need logos or webdesign done this is perfect to get some good stuff for a good price.
What you do is you post a job like, "Business Logo with cool graphics and a new spin on this concept" for example, post a price you want to pay and people will try to win the job. As people post their concepts you can tell them what you like or don't like and have them make changes or try something new. The part I really like is being able to pick from like 100 designs and choosing a winner. If you go to a designer you are usually stuck to 2 or 3 concepts for a price.
I have used them for 2 logos and 1 mascot character.
Also the customer service is great, they called me to make sure it was really me and my company, asked if I needed help setting up the job or had any questions. I wasn't expecting that at all but was a great feature!
