This is an idea for a new style of redesign competition here on DF. For few next weeks in January there will be some pilot rounds and then we'll see... Competitions will take place every week since 4th Jan 2016 (mo-su). The main rule is a free entry for every user, so no pre-signing, no participant lists before competition, etc. How it works? On Mondays I'll put a crest for redesign, then you've got 7 days to enter a contest.
Posting a project (ONLY ONE per user) = entering, and everyone can enter. You can do it one week, and pass on another, so you only enter if you like to. Deadline would always be su/mo midnight and after that I'll put a board/list with every entry. That's when voting begins - for 5 days (mo-fr) anyone can cast a vote for his/hers favourite concept (the rules here are: 1user=1vote and you CANNOT vote on your own redesign).
Winning project will be named "Redesign of the week X", and then we'go again, next monday=next crest to redesign, so new competition every week! For everyone! And I'm always open for your ideas how to improve it. Let's get ready!
START - MONDAY, JAN 4 [UPDATE] We will continue this competition in February and I hope for the next months of 2016. Through first few week we develop some more rules which are: no changing a project during an entry phase, and no posting other than competition version (even in public gallery, you can do it after phase deadline there). More things you need to know from now on: we've got a schedule for a few next weeks which looks like that - W6 Non-european team, W7 European team, W8 Football federation, W9 European team, W10 YOUR CHOICE, W11 European team... then similar, from the beginning (this is kind of 6 events loop). Also a new thing is that you can choose a team for redesign for one of the contests from time to time. How to do it? Make your proposition in a private message before "DF choice" competition begins and I'll choose (maybe by draw, maybe in some other way, don't know yet) one of proposed clubs.
