The client starts a contests in three steps (here):
1. A client first chooses which type of design he needs, subdivided into four categories: Graphic design, web design, social media and app design, and textual design
2. Then the client adds a clear description of the contest. The more information the designer has, the better. The client can also add a number of attachments here. For example existing material, examples of a style he likes or images for inspiration. In addition, the client has the possibility to add an English briefing here (for non-english clients).
3. The last step is to determine the price. Here the client also chooses the duration of the contest, whether the contest is guaranteed or not, and whether the contest is public, semi-closed or closed.

As soon as the contest has started, designers are automatically notified. They can now get started and submit their designs. The client follows the competition and gives feedback on the submissions. Constructive feedback is essential to motivate designers and help them to work in the right direction.
When the contest period has expired, the closing of the contest takes place through an automated process.
The client receives an invitation to choose a winner. The winning designer is then notified and receives a request to transfer the files via Brandsupply to the client. That is also the moment at which the intellectual property is transferred.
If the client cannot pick a winner yet, he has the option to extend the contest by one week.
Brandsupply has a No cure No pay clause, so the client is not obliged to choose a winner. This does not apply to a guaranteed competition.
