If a contest is not awarded within 14 days of the contest ending, the prize money will be used to sponsor one of our charity/non-profit design contest. The contest will be private and only the designers in the original (non-awarded) contest will be able to participate. We believe that if our designers put in hard work to create designs for the original abandoned contest, they should get an exclusive chance to earn the sought after prize. We also do this to help non-profit organizations, schools and charities with their design needs. We enable them to get world class design without the associated cost. Everybody wins!
