Contest: Brochure Design
Prize: US$108 (for each winner)
Behind the Scene
Monarch Risk Management needed a brochure done within 7 days. The brochure was to be distributed at a convention on the 8th day. With too little time to scout for a local company that might be able to deliver the required material, the company turned to Freelancer.com. Unlike others who opted to simply list the project and select from the bidders, it chose to do a brochure design contest.
“We had never used Freelancer.com before this contest,” said office administrator Connie Trynovich. “If we used the ‘project listing’ we would have to award the project without seeing what the graphic designers could do for us given our budget. We liked the idea of being able to have multiple entries to choose from, yet stay within our budget.”
Connie credits chatting with a Freelancer support staff as a very big help in making the contest process easier to do. “Since the process and the website were new to us, we were pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to learn all the nuances of the contest procedures. The chat and help emails are priceless,” she says. “The ability to privately message the designers was also extremely helpful in tweaking the details on each brochure we wanted to pursue.”
With such good entries, the company ended up with two winners. “We liked two of them so much that we awarded two prizes.”
