What is a Design Contest?

A Design Contest is a lesser design competition. It means design contests has lesser participants, lesser prizes, and less qualified designers in comparison to design competitions. Contemporary design contests are organized through design contest platforms, which provides the required functionality for designers to participate easily. Organizers provide a creative brief, which explains the aims of the contests. Designers read the brief and submit their designs. Design Contests are very price efficient for getting a varied number of submissions. By organizing a design contest, you could get 50 to 100 design submissions, for a very competitive price, however the quality of designs can sometimes be questionable. Design contests do not create brand visibility, nor add any value to brands, because in often cases, the way they are organized could be considered unrespectful for designers, especially in competitions where designers could see each others works. Organizing a design contest is suggested for companies who wish to receive dozens to hundreds of design proposals in a relatively short amount of time. BuySellDesign will help you setup a design contest at the right platform. A List of design contest platforms are listed at designcompetition.com

What is a Design Competition?

A Design Competition is an event to collect designs. A Design Competition starts with a call for submissions, different then a contest, a competition has a jury, a good prize or trophy, and winning a competition is considered prestigious. The very first Design Competitions were organized for procurement reasons, however today there are more than twenty-five business models for organizing design competitions, companies rarely organize competitions for procurement, but mostly for the other models. Some of these models are brand visibility creation, hr-programs and talent acquisition and discovery, innovation and idea collection, co-innovation, product-customization, trend generation, statistical analysis of end user requirements, marketing, and others. Design competitions usually have a prize or incentive to attract designers, and create positive impacts for the organizers. The number of participants can range between hundreds to several thousands, depending on the competition brief. While some compatitions target designers, others might target end-users, clients and customers, for such design competitions there exists specific platforms at disposal for helping the non-designers to design using configurator tools.
