My entry for Powell’s Books tote bag design contest.
You can read more eloquent arguments against these types of contests here and all over the internet if you search for it. I do believe there are exceptions and art contests that aren’t exploitative. Powell’s argument that they have three designers on staff doesn’t make this $500 gift card contest one of them. If you read the rules of submission this contest is clearly not meant for amateurs either.
