The ranking system orders by: Golds, Silvers, Bronze, and Finalists. Golds are the initial sorting criteria, with silvers, bronzes, and finalists being the tie breakers. (Similar the the Olympic system)

We are currently experimenting with Diamond contests which have the largest prize available and are only available to hand-picked "Diamond" designers.
We are promoting these to clients as a higher priced contest with a smaller amount of entries, but with an emphasis on high quality and well thought out designs.
Diamond designers are currently selected currently based on:
- A portfolio with a unique and curated Top selections
- A portfolio that in general avoids generics and cliches
- Making the Staff Picks
- Professional communication, and the ability to handle a rude client with grace
"I hate the fact that I wasn't picked"
The current staff preferred Design aesthetic might not match up with your style, and that's ok. This affects a handful of contests per week, and so far is showing to increase the average prizes of non-Diamond contests.
This is an experiment
The Diamond contests are an experiment, and the selection process, or the process itself is entirely likely to change.
Monday - Friday
9am - 5pm Pacific Time (PST)
