Which do you prefer blind contest or public? I personally like the public so I can see my competition but of course that opens up to cheating and copying designs.

I prefer the blind design contests. I puts everyone on a level playing field and prevents the copying of your concept.

A contestholder can choose to unblind a contest at anytime, also if the contest is finished then you should be able to view the entries, What are the links to these contests you have a question about (providing the link assures we are talking about the same contest)

I prefer blind contest as long as the Contest Holder has a very good brief. Competition for me is second, participation is first.

I definitely agree with josephope...if the contest holder is not specific in the brief, or does not give a lot of feedback, then blind contests can be frustrating.

I agree. There was one occasion where the briefing was very vague and the CH keep eliminating everyone! Basically, no one had the slightest clue what he was looking for and he wasn't leaving much helpful feedback.

I prefer blind contests, for the obvious reason of more original works, but what I like the most is a nice, complete brief.

I prefer blind contest if the contest holder gives a clear brief and active in giving feedback with the design entries.

i would much like blind contest because some of the designer's are copying the concept of other designers and it is not fair... :-)
