at www.DesignContest.net besides guaranteed contests we have community contests section where we run contests for our designers to have fun and practice their skills. We would like to have our t-shirts sent to the winners of the contests. You can be the sponsor and what you will get:
1. a message about your company and your services (including your url) in the contest's thread that will stay forever on the forums.
2. a message about your company in the newsletter about the contest sent to over 3000 of our members.
Thanks Rax. Not to stray too far off the topic, but I find most people don't consider it the top reason they signed up but definitely appreciate receiving the cards.
As sponsor of the last contest, I felt it appropriate to offer some hosting to the top 3 and honorable mention to sweeten the deal. Next time I sponsor, I plan on giving at least a gift card to the winner, then perhaps free hosting or other prizes to other winners. And I really do plan on sponsoring another contest there, without a doubt. If they'll have me
It was also a business card design contest, and to be honest I consider myself lucky now having a pool of talent to consider contacting next time I (or somebody I do business with) is in need of cards.
PlexiHosting, I was very happy to have you as a sponsor! You were great at giving feedback about the entries and I will be definitely happy to continue cooperation with you!
As for commercial projects (like business card or other graphics for you or your partners) it works best if you launch a contest in our "cash prizes" section.
to all: speaking about the number of entries it depends. And depends first of all on your feedback to the entries. PlexiHosting did a great job encouraging designers to take part in his contest. As for the number of views, we have over 3000 members and most of them will see the contest and your ad as it will be send out in the newsletter.
