Award 2nd and 3rd places, all contests should be guaranteed

Designers spend their lives to create for 99designs, so they deserve be awarded for 2nd and 3rd places.

All contests should be guaranteed as there no work without payment, designers are not a "crowd" or "herd", we are humans and deserve payment for our hard work.

        If all contests are guaranteed, this will reduce the contest holders only to those who have the skills and time to find from portfolios if designers are capable of creating the needed designs. But such contest holders most likely will not use 99designs because they can find a designer themselves and most likely will cost them less than using 99designs. I think 99desings will go out of business if they restrict all contests to guaranteed.

        There are contests with no guaranty because there are designers who are willing to take the risk. If you are unhappy about this you should blame the designers and not 99designs. And I don’t see why 99designs should restrict this, it brings more business, advertising “happy or money back” sounds great and it connects designers who are willing to take the risk with contest holders who are not sure if it is worth it. When this doesn’t work it is the designers who lose because the offering is overwhelmingly higher than the demand. If there were much more clients than designers it would have been the other way around but unfortunately for designers it is not.

        Regarding the 2th and 3th award, as a percentage of the price, if implemented, this will attract more designers who are often 2th and 3th place and will discourage the participation of designers who are more often winners. Which means the overall quality at 99designs may get lower.

        strongly agree, all contests are guaranteed payment should get 2nd and 3rd in the final round, the designer who has entered the final round is also working hard to achieve what they want by CH.

        Nobody is forcing anyone to submit work here, if it's not worth it, then don't enter the contests.

        I think when you uploade a design for a CH to view it should have some sort of 99designs watermark with the users screenname inside

        You're right. There are some other websites where some contest holders are posting a contest that isn't guaranteed, then after they get the results they can still use a logo by simply copying and pasting it or using a snipping tool, but they never pay for it. Designers aren't in this to for nothing.

        If they don't guarantee the contests, they won't get as many submissions either.

        There has been on instance when I was told that I was going to be chosen by a contest holder, but the CH chose another design after I had went and printed a comp at Office Max like they requested. Never again CHs. Don't tell someone you're going to pick their design, then don't do it.

        will be honored if this 99design resolve problems, so far 99design it's been a huge advantage.

        i agree but the decision comes from 99designs team so that no one has doubt about the result
