Has anyone ever had success with a design contest?

    Most professional designers do not participate in design contests (ie. "spec work" or "speculative work") for 2 main reasons:

    • Only one person who participates will get paid, meaning everyone else is producing work for free
    • The contest organizer is less likely to get what they're looking for because there is little to no communication between them and the designer

    Have you ever had success with a design contest? Did you get exactly what you were looking for or was it just "close enough"?
