I need another moderator to look at the latest infraction points I have received. It states I copied an idea when my design is completely original. If you look at the 2 entries they are different concepts. It also states the other entry was the first to use a palm tree, my design uses palm trees in a different way. I would think the use of a palm tree would not be locked down by the first designer to use it. Please take another look.

sorry this is not incorrect, palm trees were not requested so they become unique for the first designer to use the idea

Hi sharie, thanks for responding. I do not understand how that can be the case. The customer requested a surf theme. To me this would include all surf/beach type items. The palm tree was not even used the same way, dont see how that is copying.

I don't understand why I am singled out when there are plenty of other designs by multiple designers who are using palm trees. In fact theirs are much closer to the top rated design than mine was. Doesn't seem like a fair playing field to me.

The creation of my design had nothing to do with any of the other designs already posted. I could understand if the designs were similar, but to say since one designer used a COMMON element in their design, they own that, really limits the creativity of the other designers.

You were not singled out, many other designers in this contest have same infraction. palm trees are unique and not thought of with surfing, waves and surf boards are though of. No one started using palm trees until after the first designers entries started getting the high ratings. There are many ways to create a design for this contest without using a palm tree

Again thanks for the feedback. It is real hard to say who thinks of what when brainstorming. Which is why I say the client is limited by this type of rule. I simply sat down, drew a tooth and figured out a way to create it using negative space. Palm trees were the best fit for my idea. So for me to receive an infraction and told I am copying others and to be original was a real slap in the face. I am fairly new, so I will take this as lesson learned. Thanks again.

Infraction points have a set date to expire, some expire in  6 months some will never expire, this depends on the severity of the infraction

Hi,

 

I just received an infraction of 20 points. I cannot find any detailed information. Contest holder just asked brain correlate with the heart symbol. So i created the logo with geometric brain shape and heart symbol by using negative space. Mostly all of them are using that type only. But i am the only one using brain in geometric shapes. But now my designs are deleted from the contest. This is not a copy of other designers. So 

how can I get my designs active. Please take another look. 
 
Thanks

How can I Challenge the report.

 Hi there

 

Your email should say  "Copying entry 25 with using the heart in brain as negative space "

 

There is mothing to challenge, the negative space heart is an idea that is unique to the first designer that used this in this contest. You can't take another desingers idea and go with it, you have to come up with your own ideas

 

Thank you
