If you’re not getting entries to your design contest, ask yourself these questions.
Is my contest attractive to designers?
Designers in our community are less likely to enter a contest which isn’t guaranteed or offers only the minimum prize so, consider increasing the prize on offer to attract more designers.
Am I giving lots of detailed feedback?
Designers love feedback. Your brief acts as a starting point, but your feedback is vital for designers to create a design you love. Keep on top of feedback: archive designs and eliminate designers that don’t interest you, and leave comments and ratings for designers who do.
Is my design brief or requirement too complex?
The more complex your design contest is, the longer you may have to wait for entries to start appearing. Designers can start to knock up simple logo designs within a day, but complex web page designs may take at least a couple of days to start appearing.If your requirements are complex, it’ll take designers longer to meet them.
Am I answering all questions which are being asked?
Make sure you also answer questions in the Announcements area of your contest under 'Messages' tab. Also check that your brief is clearly written, and that you’re asking for only one category of design.
