No, and here’s why. For your protection, and in order to release the prize money to the designer, both of you must legally transfer ownership of the design. The Design Handover enables you to do that easily.
What should the winning designer provide?
The design brief specifies the file types that need to be provided. Here’s a quick recap:
To use the design online on a website, as a banner or other advertising we recommend PSD and JPG file files.
To use the design for print as a letterhead, business card or for t-shirts we recommend AI and EPS formats.
How does the contest handover work?
Here's how the Contest Handover works:
First, the designer signs the IP Transfer Agreement and uploads the files to Freelancer.com
The contest holder then has 14 days to download, review and accept the files and sign the IP Transfer Agreement. The prize money is released to the freelancer when the contest holder accepts the files.
Note: If the contest holder does not review the files within 14 days of them being uploaded, the prize money will be automatically released to the freelancer.
How do I sign the IP Transfer Agreement?
To sign the IP Transfer Agreement, carefully review your details, then check the box beside ‘I agree to sign the IP Transfer Agreement’ and click “Sign Contract”.
Should I provide revisions after my design is selected as the winner?
Designers, we recommend trying to accommodate minor revisions requested by the contest holder, but anything else is up to you.
Should I email the contest holder my design when chosen as the winner?
No and here’s why. For your protection, and in order to release the prize money to you, you must legally transfer ownership of the design to the contest holder by completing the Design Handover. It’s the only way the prize money will be released to you and is easy to complete.
