Funny there are too many bitter contestants here. Welcome to crowd sourcing and learn how to accept defeat. Read the brief and you'll have greater chance to win. The rounded square with a "letter" is a standard web 2.0 social icon not just a facebook icon. Google "social icon" and you'll see.
and I have to add this - freelancer.com is joke also. 400 items in contest?? you hardly get any sicker copmetition than this. Good luck to you all who have free time to spend it in this worthless contests. Sadly I don't. Fuck this page
Yup, #161 is the same font used by Joe Kral for Facebook, It is custom made Klavika Bold which is also a commercial font. The 5 stared #225 and #226 . If the contest holder wants the icon version, I'm ready to generate one for him. I did'nt put it up coz the designs looked better poised the way it was. (In the full mode)
Does anybody know how to hide contests in the dashboard? There are many contests "pending" during weeks (like this scam) and is useless tho have them in the dashboard.
P.S. I don´t know why it says "guaranteed" in so many contests, clearly the only guaranteed thing is that they laugh at our face for free.
First, I want to thank you for the comments.
Second, about colors...If you believe me, I didn't pay attention to "Preferred colours" section at all, until few moments ago. And I was always wondering how contest holders never mention any specific colors?! :) I never looked to the right, huge mistake....but I always wrote in PM that he can suggest color changes.
Thank you once again on positive comments about the logo, and thank you for hint about colors.
If you read through the FAQ's, under "How long do I have to choose a winning design?" it says........
"You can choose a winner at any time when the contest is active and 14 days after the contest ends. If you don't select a winner in those 14 days the contest is locked and you can no longer choose a winner. Note: If your contest was guaranteed the prize money will be automatically shared between freelancers. If you need help choosing a winner, get your friends to help you by creating a poll for them to vote on up to 8 designs!"
I'm not sure how it works as far as an individual who submitted multiple designs. There were 398 submissions and prize money of $290.
