What happens when the contest gets closed but no winner was determined? Does that mean they didnt want anything?

What contest?

If it is a non guaranteed contest then nothing can be done about that. The contest holder may have decided they didn't like anything that was in that contest, who knows.

Does anyone follow up on these folks that don't choose a winner and see what they eventually use as their logo? I feel like it would be easy to give a logo design to a designer of theirs and have them recreate it.

We do the best we can. The prepaid contests the contest will go into poll mode but the non pre paid just ends as a dead contest. This happens and not much can be done about it

You shouldn't be mad about it when no designs get chosen, you don't have to participate non-guaranteed designs.

Is the contest holder allowed to end a contest earlier than the previously announced time?

we can see tag on some contest says "Featured" (what does it mean?)
we can see $ sign on every contest says "Prepaid" (does it mean the contest is guaranteed??)
when do we know that it is not guaranteed??

Thank you for the information. =)

we do not have guaranteed contest. All of our contests are prepaid but they are not guaranteed to choose a winner.

"Featured" (what does it mean?) is a paid upgrade the client chooses to help the contest stand out to you the designer, makes the contest more prominent and also shows designers the contest is a little more serious and put up a little more money to attract designers

we have a refund policy. The contest has to meet certain specific criteria.

If the contest goes past 5th week of no contact the contest is considered abandoned.

I think there still an unanswered question;
"Is the contest holder allowed to end a contest earlier than the previously announced time? "
Can somebody make sure what the answer of this question?

One more question from me:
When a CH said that he needs three logos, does he means that there will be 3 winners or that he expect the winner to create three kinds of logos? Can he possible to ask more than 1 logo in one contest?

can it be possible, when the project is abandoned, the designer with highest rate could get the bigger share of the prize?

Dear Admin...
I think there's should be a reward (for the hardwork) for designers who has followed a contest, even if it's just a "penny". it might be based on the rating given by CH, the more rating the more reward will achieved. hence, the CH is obliged to rate all designs, although they don't choose one of them in the end of the contest.
in this case, the CH is given two options of payment; 1. The CH pay all amounts of fee if they choose a winner. 2. they pay 60% of it (as it's commonly use as DP) if the CH don't choose a winner.
My last suggestion is please, do appreciate all designers!
best regards.
