Design Contests (Working for Free?)

    I’m in the middle of the road on this just hard to join either side. If I was busy with paid work I would doubt I’d even take a second look at working for free. If being unemployed I would do anything to get exposure and build up my portfolio and experience the job market. This reminds me of stock trading, when I first started out I did trades of very low amounts with expecting very little gain or loss I did this to build up my portfolio and get experience in such a large market. A very great post once again, sorry I missed the last few posts but I never got an email notice. Grrrr, lol

      I understand your point, to each their own. I suppose if you are looking at it as “practice” instead of “work” then it could be a bit different as well. Despite it not being worth any money, it could be an exercise to help you build your skills and techniques.

      That’s strange that the e-mail never sent out, I’ll have to look into that. But no need to apologize!

      I know ugh, I had a spam filter plugin before to get rid of all of those but it made my website very slow. I’m going to have to try and find another one. I only have a Facebook account for personal purposes. You can follow my Instagram: @ashrobertsondesign or Twitter: @ashleytr accounts though.
