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.

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.

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.
