Those logo contest sites are very exploitive, they work because many people in poorer countries are willing to work for free. I really hope ehvato does not get involved in anything like that.

Most of them are exploitative, but I believe Worth1000 is different in that it is primarily a site where artists compete just for the fun and/or ego-trip of accumulating large “trophy” collections (no cash prizes – just credits which can be used to enter paid contests).

The corporate logo contests section not only just gives members a chance of a cash prize too but also provides a methods by which members can win site credits (which are awarded to the voted winner, not the client pick) without paying to enter the contest.

That’s how I got started there, won a few site credits in a corporate contest and started entering paid contests in other sections without having to buy credits .. ( and happily won a few cash prizes along the way by having a few of my entries selected by the sponsoring clients :) )

Why would a business use a stock logo? Does that not just defeat the purpose of having a logo in the first place (ie. Branding), I used to design logos for a pretty big advertising company and had one job where the guy was desperate for a new logo after he found his stock logo was also being used by a dildo-seller.

so on worth1000 you first need to do even more free work just to enter paid contest? seems worse than even the most exploitive sites.. or maybe I’m missing the attraction\point..

I guess you’re just missing the attraction. :)
