How can I know if any of the entries to my contest are stolen?

As a contest holder, the onus is on you to take reasonable steps to check that the winning design in your contest is original and won’t land you in hot water. We recommend that you take the following steps in the latter stages of your contest:

  1. Listen to the designers in your contest: They can be some of your best helpers in identifying copied or unoriginal designs. They’re the design experts, after all!
  2. Search for similar designs: To confirm the originality of your top designs, it’s a good idea to use image search sites such as TinEyeGoogle Images or PicScout.

We take copyright infringement very seriously here at 110Designs, so if you discover that someone has stolen a design let us know and we’ll look into it ASAP.
