It is so very frustrating to work really hard on a contrast and have it cancelled further down the line.
I have a suggestion on these contests that are not guaranteed:
SquadHelp refuse to accept them all together ( Think of the creatives. The energy and time spent on these, and it’s not always that one realises the contest isn’t guaranteed before participating in ) Or
Charge a cancellation fee like we have in the hotel industry in case of cancellations within a specified period of time, or no-shows. This fee can go into splits once a contest is abandoned. And I think this is as win win situation all round.
What do you other creatives think?
Thank you for listening SquadHelp
