Silver and Bronze medals replaced it with money tip

If the contests involved thousands instead of hundreds of dollars, it would encourage maximum effort on the part of the entire design community. As is, "Winner-Take All" is how it works in the real analog world (non-crowd source).

It would probably compensate pretty fast and there wouldn't be that bad feeling lingering around when you get so close and all you got for hard work was a few silvery/bronze pixels

If you din't, it is not always the amount of bad designer, I happened to see great designer unrated, so if it is a job for a CH really appreciable, but not winning, it would be nice to have just $5 for the work done for the time spent on the contest and to the effort and creativity.
The CH can select this option at the end at start of the contest annunced this possibility, if the ch select a winner but decide to select reward for 2nd 3rd place, on 200 $ can be divided:
190 $ for winner, 5$ and 5$ for 2nd and 3rd.
2nd and 3rd are not winner, so they can use the designs for other contest, they will be rewarded only for their good job.
I think that 50$ or 25$ is a lot for CH and for DC. Finally you pay 75$ more than before. Is not a lot to refund time, creativity and others things, but a lot to ensure a prize for all, in all contest.

Many give the CH the optional opportunity to award a "participation" award to the designers who did not win but who contributed well to the contest.
The number and amount to be determined by the CH, usually $20 each for the next two to three designers.
It takes some of the bitterness out of a losing effort on a big project.

Maybe for Contest which is willing to pay for their logo more than the minimum amount.
It really depends on the CH but it would be something good if silver or bronze medal winners will have a motivation still
to work on other projects as well maybe next time they will win the gold but with all their hardwork
this is something in exchange. This idea of tipping to silver & bronze winners could encourage more designers.
