This doesn't infringe against the T&Cs so I'll keep the thread up (for now), but in all honesty that prize is really lacking – having your work "seen across Europe" is no substitute for being fairly compensated for your time and effort. We can't pay our bills with exposure, and as such the submissions you get are likely to be lacking.

I'd strongly urge you to reconsider the 'prize' to improve the quality of the designs you get.

Exposure is part of the pay anyway - it doesn't matter if it's exposed to 1 or 1,000,000 ...

A prize stipulates it's a competition, and I'm very much against this in the graphic design arena. This isn't a game we play, it's not a playground, there are no prizes. It's a wage, it's a job, it's a family, it's a mortgage, it's everything anyone else in a job has.

Why do people think "prizes" are worth "logos" - it's just insulting.

I thought last year the argument as to why these type of competitions are accepted was that students may want to enter for the exposure and the work for their portfolios, whilst having a 'chance of winning a prize'. And that 'you don't have to enter' etc. etc.

I am totally against these type of competitions for the very reasons stated above.
