UPDATE EDIT 6/05/2020
WON MY FIRST CONTEST, $300 BUCKS!
Guess you could say I’m professional now
As a newbie with no wins and 86% I have to disagree @Edukar
And you can bet I dang sure earned that Tier A status amongst all you seasoned winners and old timers.
It’s not as easy to achieve as you imply.
This link talks about how % is based on more than just good ratings…
Making CH’s ratings a part of what determines score isn’t such an absurd thing. This is, after all, about the CHs and what they think.
I work with CHs, clarify briefs, constantly check for updates and feedback, enter contests daily, so on. I earn those good ratings through work, communication, connection.
Is this not how you gained Tier A status and/or won contests?
You see, I could have the same sentiment as you toward winning portfolios and say that you oldtimers have low % and hardly no good ratings yet you all still win! lol
It balances out.
You said ratings do not indicate the greatness of creativity, yet later go on to say that the number of wins DO. This is contradicting, and unfair. Good ratings are determined and given by CHs, and so are the wins. We both earned what we have in the same way.
Now that you have a win, you want to make % and contest accessibility catered to winners only? That would feel really unfair if all you seasoned creatives and multi-time winners had seniority over me just because you’ve won before. That sounds like an unnecessary hierarchy.
I’m of the opinion and experience that % is calculated fairly, and wins do not equal professionalism.
I look up to all you seasoned winners and can’t wait til I’m in that bracket myself.
