Recently we have received questions and comments from few creatives about the policy regarding submission of names that have previously won, or names that have been shared by CH in their own brief. Here’s an updated policy on these issues:
- Names already shared by CH in their brief
You are no longer allowed to submit names that have already been shared by CH in their brief. We believe it is not fair to win a contest by simply submitting the same name that the CH has already thought of. Any submission of such names going forward can lead to potential action such as account suspension.
2. Previously Won Names
If a name has won previously, you are allowed to submit it. However please use your best judgement in submitting the name, especially if the contest is from the same industry. When a CH selects a winner, we will now show them a warning that this name has previously won on Squadhelp. If they still decide to select that name as a winner, they would be doing it with full awareness that the name has previously won on Squadhelp. Instead of us blocking these kind of submissions, we prefer to offer full transparency to the CH, so they can determine whether or not they want to use that name.
Please note, however, that we do not endorse blatant copying of other creatives’ winning names. If someone is found to be engaging in this kind of behavior on multiple instances, we reserve the right to limit their ability to participate in future contests.
