The number of designs you'll receive depends on a number of factors:
- Size of the prize. Money is strongly correlated with the number of entries.
- Contest holder engagement. A contest holder who is actively providing feedback will receive far more entries than a passive contest holder.
- Budget Type. A Professional or Elite contest is going to attract a lot more attention than a budget contest.
- Type of Designs. Designs like logos are relatively simple to create compared to brochures and websites. They see higher submission numbers as a result.
When the right factors align we have seen contests receive 800+ entries while on average, a contest receives ~125.
