    Idle curiosity - but how can the winner announcement claim the work was done in 4 days? This contest has been open for a whole 4 weeks - and we're not including the award pending period after closing either....

      I freely confess - I find myself wondering if, in practice, the three people who entered and who kept their entries in actually understood the conditions of entry. It's going to be illuminating, finding out....

    The longer your comments go unanswered, the more evident it seems to me that those who run this site decided to conduct a nasty experiment to see how far they could push the boundaries of what is possible to 'scam' from the participants. I also don't hesitate for a second in saying, if this contest had been successful (for them) then those terms would have been gradually rolled out across the site. Like I suppose happens frequently across many a workplace, however, is untalented 'middlemen' justify their usefulness by plundering all they can from the Artists (of all forms) who make this site possible! The mere fact your comments remain ignored is indicative of the sleazy malpractice being explored.

      When you entered this Contest, Darren - you didn't mean to hand the Contest Holder the rights of your work, unpaid - did you...? And - of course - the answer's, you DIDN'T. As soon as you realised the possibility existed, you withdrew. Same for every other entrant - the chap who thought he was entering a logo contest notwithstanding, obviously. The point is - when you entered - you did so under the presumption you were simply entering a Standard Competition. There was no ACTUAL intent on your part whatsoever to VOLUNTARILY surrender to Freelancer the Rights this competitions NON-STANDARD TERMS claim. And THAT'S the problem. You didn't actually want to hand anyone the rights to your work WITHOUT payment first, period.

      NOBODY DOES - nobody working through here, knowingly and VOLUNTARILY would. We're not individuals - we're BUSINESSES - this is a BUSINESS PLATFORM. There is no scenario where anyone can credibly argue in Court anything to the contrary, therefore - the likelihood that ANYONE using this platform would knowingly just hand another party all rights on what we - as BUSINESS ENTITIES - are here expressly to sell - is a non-sense. Can you imagine the field-day even a 1st year intern would have ripping apart the amateur-hour rubbish attempted here in this context. Better yet - imagine the suit Freelancer becomes liable for were OTHER PARTIES successful in such endevour hosting a Rights Grabbing Contest VIA this platform...? I'm almost tempted to just leave the buggers to it, seriously...

    Well, It's been a further few days, now - still no clarification on any of the issues raised, I see. Hope you're not ill or anything. It's just, the contest process still appears to be stalled. One additional thing that is concerning me, though. Aside from the chap that mistakenly submitted an entry thinking they were taking part in a logo contest - your other entrants all WITHDREW their work AFTER realising the terms you've placed - at the very bottom of the brief, under the heading GET SOME BUZZ FOR YOUR WORK - were real, let alone noticing they were there. It's a bit of a counter intuitive place to put the terms, don't you think? Especial considering they're clearly VERY important...

      Your brief contains a number of very distinct headings. RULES, for example - considerably further up the page. One might intuitively expect to see some mention of the terms you've imposed residing somewhere under that heading. Equally - considering these terms are obviously very important (given the fact they still apply, despite their clearly negative impact on entries) one might consider it equally as intuitive to include them under their own - distinct - heading of IMPORTANT. That way, the 90% or so of people who work through here for whom English is only a second language may have the chance of realising the fact that something very important, something that impacts on their REGULAR RIGHTS, is actually present in what otherwise appears as just a typical - your rights-are-yours-until-paid for - contest. As one EXPECTS to most usually find hosted on this platform.

      The simple fact of the matter is - the terms you've imposed assigning the entrants rights on their work to Freelancer without payment ARE NOT TYPICAL TERMS for regular Contests usually ALLOWED on this platform - and yet you haven't done anything to draw attention to the fact they're here, let alone apply. The term OBFUSCATION, kind of springs to mind. How genuinely is what you've done with the terms of entry in this competition any different from what Facebook have done with it's users and their privacy rights? You've published your terms under a completely unrelated heading right at the bottom of the brief. Any possibility of making them more prominent and easier for people to notice, please - or at least can you proffer some reasonable explanation as to why not...?

    Hello again. One can't help but notice, the entire competition process here appears to have ground to a complete stand still and - as has been more than adequately stated already - the reason for that remains the Rights Grabbing terms you've elected to attach and keep as part of the brief you've set. There's clearly a very easy fix to the issue - remove the unfair terms - nobody has any reason not to submit work. It's all very simple.... So, may we enquire - exactly why is this lack of any form of forward progress going on...?

      Hello, Jesus - yeah. The Big Data issue associated with Facebook is definitely a thing, peoples privacy rights have been legally circumvented and personal information concerning them is being compiled and sold without the individuals realization and full knowing consent. I DO HAVE TO WARN YOU THOUGH - by entering work in THIS contest - you will be agreeing to hand the Contest Holder the right to both USE and SELL your work WITHOUT themselves having to pay you anything for it. It's called RIGHTS GRABBING. For people for whom English isn't a first language it's a practice every bit as bad as the Facebook privacy issue. Possibly worse, given the cynicism involved. Read the LAST PARAGRAPH of the Contest Holder's brief before doing anything. If you must enter - WATERMARK your work clearly ALL RIGHTS RESERVED, copyright yourself. Don't rely on Exif meta-data alone. My best to you, S : )

    Glad you brought attention to this issue. When I entered, after reading the terms laid out, I thought 'surely' they couldn't mean unrestricted access to entry and 'possibly' all material in a users freelancer portfolio? The irony of the contest and its subject surely can't have been missed on those hosting this contest/site. Certainly, I think it best I withdraw until the matter is clarified.

      Good man - my apologies to you, as well. I really liked your entry, Darren. Hopefully this get's resolved. Shouldn't really be an issue. Proper protocol when raising an issue with a CH is to, first raise it and - if, after reasonable time - no response or indication that any form of response appears forth coming - to report the contest to Support. I suggest everyone do that. They pick it up from there. Just keep an eye out for anyone who hasn't read, clue them in. Hopefully everything's back on track presently. My regards, D/ LOVE you're avatar. Very Scarfe - can see this contest being right up your street.... : )

      PS - just re-read your post. Don't worry - no. The terms specified ONLY attempt to grant the competition organizer a non-exclusive license to both use and sell on the rights on anything you enter in this competition. Your folio work is entirely your own. You still retain all rights on your submission as well, it has to be said - but the process employed here attempts to grant Freelancer and it's affiliates (specifically) a PERPETUAL license to use it equally - as well as - sell on the right to allow other people to use. All without paying you a single penny for such license, your compliance to these terms assumed, simply through submission. So yes, withdrawal is probably safest - but your folio work is fine. Don't worry about that. There's no claim to any of that here. Sorry, the other day when I read was Sunday - I'm the cook. My best, S : )

    Alright. Let me try another tack, here - Freelancer (first and foremost) is a brokerage. In the context of competitions operated via this platform your business operates on the basis that - people wanting work done pay Freelancer to host a competition to get idea's in - the self-employed person who produces the work the Contest Holder wants from that process signs over their IP to Freelancer who (in exchange) handover the money the CH puts up, naturally less Freelancers cut. We all know where we stand. Imagine though how this situation HERE impacts on Freelancers business if EVERYONE hosting a contest on this platform can just add any old rights-grabbing clause they want - where is Freelancers brokerage business, then...?

      If a Contest Holder can just help themselves to the property rights of the self-employed people who work via this platform - I trust here you see the problem. If anyone should immediately be seeing it, that entity should be Freelancer. The impact of Right's-Grabbing practices being adopted here, for us freelance-workers, is primarily that of inconvenience. Instead of working via a platform we all - by preference - prefer, we simply have no choice other than to work through platforms which prohibit Rights-Grabbing practicies and uphold the property rights of the users working via that platform. This contest, a simple point in case.

      Allow this particular feline out the bag - allow any Tom, Dick or Harriet hosting a contest via THIS platform to indulge in the practice of what is, fundamentally, nothing more than unethical, legitimized property theft - where does that leave Freelancers business....? You're no longer left with anything you can sell. I trust I make my case, and that - by deed - that case continues to be amply demonstrated. Please - if you wouldn't mind - loose the Rights-Grabbing clause attached to your brief. Thank you for your consideration. My apologies for the wordage. I'm British.... S : )

By submitting your entry, you agree that Freelancer and its affiliates get an unlimited in time, non-exclusive, transferable, sub-licensable, royalty-free, worldwide license to use your IP content at any stage during and after the Contest duration." - Forgive the observation, but the term quoted above appears to be allowing you (Freelancer) the right to just simply use any work submitted and sell it on without proffering payment to the entrant. Any chance of walking us through what I - surely - must NOT be picking up correctly on there, or is the appraisal (in practice) correct? Curious minds and all that....

      : )... You're not wrong, Indrek - on both scores. Sorry for being wordy - but the people who posted this contest ARE native English speakers and they also know perfectly well what they're doing adding a rights appropriation clause to this - it isn't legal. ALL work submitted for consideration in any contest hosted on any freelance platform remains the property of its creator UNTIL such time the works creator is in receipt of PAYMENT for the work they have produced. I'm not sure if this contest is serious or simply testing weather or not we actually pay attention. I'm hoping it's the latter. Until we know one way or the other can I suggest no one enter anything until such time as the terms highlighted have been removed. If one MUST - make sure the entry is WATERMARKED, copyright to yourself and specify "ALL RIGHTS RESERVED"
