Currently, active contests are filtered $0-100, $100-200, $200-300, and > $300. The contests which are listed as $100, $200, and $300 are listed in two different categories. The problem is if I want to see only contests that are listed for $200, I can’t. If I choose the $100-200 category, the $100 contests are listed as well. And if I chose the $200-300 category, the $300 are mixed in too. So, as a result of the current category parameters, one cannot see only the $200 contests. Maybe the category parameters need to be adjusted. Possibly something like $0-100, $101-200, $201-300, and > $301.
I can guess that we all have our own methods of deciding on which contests to enter. But when there are as many as there have been, I usually start at >$300 and work my way down. This works fine until I finish that group and move on to the $200-300 group. All of the contest I previously looked over, the > $300, are also listed in this group too.
I guess it’s a good problem to have, so many contests. But the way the filtering works, it’s wasting time. And if only 500 creatives waste 10 minutes a day re-reading briefs, that’s over 80 hours of wasted time daily. The more productive creatives are, the more names submitted, the more likely the CH will find that winning name sooner, reducing the possibility for multiple extensions and abandoned contests.
