Judging should be done by an appropriate panel for each category.
Amount of “likes” only indicates size of the designer’s network, not quality.

Hello J. Michael,

Thank you for your feedback. We have considered this and the contest is meant to be a fun way to get exposure, but we may implement some changes in the future.

I agree with the comment. In the past persons with very inferior creations win over people with real talent. I have mostly quit voting on anything because it doesn’t matter compared to persons with a big Facebook network. It takes all the fun out of it.

Hello Benjamin,

Thank you for bringing feedback to our contests. They are meant to be a fun way of practicing your skills and exposing your personal brand. We will bring your feedback to the social team however.

Have a good day!
