This article explores the result announcements' weight on the quality score for a design competition.

Assigning a Quality Score for Design Competitions - Results

Abstract: A Good design competition should announce results. Before the results are announced, a date should be communicated; a good design award would announce the results at the given date. In addition to the results announcement, several statistics such as the number of participants and submissions shall be communicated; so that entrants can understand what it means to be a winner in this competition; did everyone win or was it one in a million.. Furthermore, the best design competitions would announce the results earlier to winners, giving them a time to work on patenting or other issues. A good competition would also release a press release for announcing winners and provide a URL with all the winners.

This is the only criteria that is about post-competition results.

Please note that for the Results score other information such as gala night, trophies etc are not discussed in this section as they are discussed in detail in other sections.
