    What idiot wrote the above? Maybe you should hold a contest for a proof reader too.

    I like how they make it harder to want to submit even though it's only 200 for a logo they can use whenever they want. You have to connect via some app via Facebook?

    oh man, can't wait for the rest of the forum to get in on this

    200 bucks. For a logo. With all rights granted. PUH-LEEZE.

    Do you people have any idea how much a designer can make on a legitimate corporate ID job? Do you know how silly your 200 dollars look in the real world?

    Exploitative rip-off contest ahoy!

    hah, love #12 and 13.
    ...and #11... Apparently by merely entering you transfer all rights. Which means they could go ahead and use your work for free without even giving you a prize. Wonderful.

    I think the OP is poking fun at these things, but I hate that god damn shit. It is strange to me that artists actually do that. On reddit somebody was holding a contest for 200$ whereby the artists had to paint a portrait of the couple. I said I am interested, but not in a contest format. I got 350$ prepaid before I did anything and the contest was closed. The greatest and only way to do work.

    So, I'm guessing you'll HAVE to take my entry since nobody else seems to be participating, even though it's obviously made in ten minutes, right?

    Easiest 200 bucks ever made lolol

    Angry

    Can we make a shit-list/black-list of these jokers somewhere? With any kind of rip-off too (like unpaid wages, even if you're an employee not a contractor/freelance.).

    This is great! So let me get this straight. I get the "chance" (up to you guys) to get $200.00 for art that would normally be worth $500 to $1000.00? Wow you guys are so very generous.

    I value my design skills alot more than $200 chief! I'll give you an idea for $200, but I'll design it and execute it for 100 billion dollars! For that you get the logo, the type, the whole damn thing!

    Actually, for a professionally designed logo and the rights to use it, you could easily go up at least one order of magnitude.

    For 200$ you get your company name typed on wathever #1 item on dafont is for the keyword "videogames"

    But you should probably pay the 200 $ upfront before receiving the 72 dpi png. file though.

    Well I did come across someone offering $15 for a "professional logo".. (Good thing it's not a spec work but the pay is crap)

    And a bunch of artist reply and submit their portfolio to that.. Are you kidding me?? And the one chosen only gets $15. :/
