Overview of Contest Phases

How your contest will progress

Your contest will run in three phases: Blind, Finalists, and Selection.

As the field narrows to your favorite designers, they will put in more time and effort to deliver the logo that you have in your mind, heart, or gut.

Blind Phase

The objective of the Blind Phase is to explore as many logo concepts as possible. All designers can submit, however, they cannot see each others' logos. We've made it Blind to increase the variety of initial ideas.

Some designers are going to follow what you've put in your Brief and some are going to do their own thing.

The Blind Phase lasts for 4 days.

Finalists Phase

The objective of the Finalists Phase is to work with the Finalists designers for more personalized attention and dedicated service. The Five Finalists designers are based on how you rank your logos.

Logos become visible to all LogoTournament designers.

The Finalist Phase lasts for 3 days.

Selection Phase

The objective of the Selection phase is to work with your favourite designer to finalize your logo with minor revisions and to select a winning logo.

The Selection Phase lasts between 0 to 7 days.


When you have chosen your logo, the designer will upload the final files.  After you download the files you can approve them so the designer can receive their payment.
Once your contest starts the contest portion and other phases are sequential - weekends are included. 

Note: Open Phase

There is sometimes an "Open" phase which only occurs if a contests requires an extension after the Blind phase has completed.
