Clipart, Yes or No?

"It's best to create all your graphics yourself, but sometimes you just can't avoid using clipart."
Is this statement implying that it is not against the rules to use Clipart (and/or Stock Photos, Stock Designs) in non-logo designs on DesignContest.com?

It wouldn't make sense to redraw twitter icon for each website that you create
But we strictly forbid any use of clipart in logo design contests whether or not the license allows it. Logos must be entirely created by yourself.

It is absurd ... spending the time searching for the use of it ... even in the "blind" contests ... the Contest Holder will be the first and the only one to blindness ...

those tutorials are not clipart per 'se but if used in a logo it is still considered art you didn't create yourself.
ALL logo contests are required to have 100% your own original art . Do not use little bits of art of someone else's or parts of tutorials or those free downloads and it doesn't matter if you have purchased those logo makers or 500,000 cliparts cd type programs. If you didn't create the art it is not yours to sell. The contestholder is paying for original art, art that they can copyright and trademark.

Sharie, please explain us how this happen? I guess you had a discussion over it... I don't care much what CH said about it, I care what DC team said about it and what actions did you take... if there were any.

No body can see a person with fast working and fast increment of the level. I have read all the terms and condition but How DC provide Infraction Point, it never defined. So this is really partial.

I can't agree with "most of designers" are using clip-art. Check for example top designers like JJYepez, Morabira, R. Renato, Eximius, and many others in our community.
Beside of breaking the rule and playing with intellectual rights, clip-art is cheap! Clip-art is not (or rarely) used in logo design. Clip-art is making graphic designers profession underestimated - graphic design is not a factory, it is not industrial thing like many commercial graphic-photo stock sites are representing... it should be sophisticated and valuable mind and skill creative game as it actually is, no matter how good or bad we are.
Like I wrote on some other thread - it is not every day we are seeing for example mammoth, elephant, Liberty statue, London skyline, wind surfer, etc... of course we will take a look at the photos or other images, and then process and bring it on our own.
