My main aim with Stardoll's Next Top Graphic Designer is to create a fun and exciting competition where graphic artists can improve and do better, with the help of the judges critique. This is why I feel as though the whole elimination process is slightly unhelpful. Someone may be eliminated in task one for "being the worst" but this doesn't give them a chance to improve. I know that it's a competition and all, but I definitely think there's ways to work around that.
My concept is to make NO eliminations. Every contestant will send in their graphics and the judges will critique them. They however will give me a score but it will not be revealed. Nobody will be eliminated but the people will know where to improve. If someone fails to complete a task then they are able to do the next week but will not get the scoring they could have got on the previous one which will set them back.
At the end a total score for everyone will be added up and then a big grand finale will be staged with a countdown until the winner.
I really want to try this, but what do you think?
Any queries just comment below.
(There will still be top photos and judging but no elimination until the end)
