Attract more experienced designers with a higher prize

Each contest package includes the “prize amount” that the creative who you select as a winner gets in exchange for transferring the rights and delivering final files (minus any commission charged to the creative by Hatchwise).

The higher the prize the more entries and participating creatives you can expect your contest to get.



All Design and Naming Contests come with our Money Back Guarantee. 

Got questions? We've got answers!

We have pricing for all budgets, higher priced Business Naming contest packages come with a larger prize for the winning designer, which typically results in higher participation by more skilled creatives. View the pricing for all types of contests here.

Contests run for ten days, during which time you will receive entries and can request revisions. If you need work done more quickly our rush upgrade gets you results in 48 hours and usually results in more entries than a comparable 10 day contest. You can always extend your contest once it ends if you want to see more entries or want to request changes to an existing entry.​

Yes! Once you award your naming contest winner, you have the option to purchase any of the other submissions as Additional Entries. This works well if you have multiple businesses that you would like to have similar names for. 

If you see naming concepts that you like, but want to see other versions of the same concept feel free to ask the creative to enter more suggestions! While they are not required to, most are more than happy to follow your instructions and submit more business name ideas.

Absolutely! The winning creative will transfer the rights to your new business name to you when they upload the text files, after you award your contest winner. As always, Hatchwise is the middle man, facilitating the transaction between you and the creative. We recommend checking our new name for copyright purposes before awarding it the contest winner. 

Each of the creatives retains the full rights to their contest entries unless you select it as the winner or purchase it as an additional entry. Once you award a winner and they upload the final files they are transferring the full rights to the creative material over to you, as the client. You then own the full rights to the work and are welcome to use it however you wish.  The only rights that Hatchwise and the submitting creative retain are the rights to display it in their/our portfolio and marketing material as examples of work done.

All About Company Naming Contests

A Small Name With A Big Impact

When you’re an entrepreneur, you’re thinking about the big picture. Your audience, your services, your future — focusing on these factors is integral to a successful business. But one small thing may stand in the way of your success: your company name. Naming your company may seem simple, but a name has to check many boxes for a company to flourish. It can’t be too long, too short, too hard to pronounce, too confusing, too common. The list goes on! However, there’s no professional “Company Namer” on your payroll, so how do you choose?

Why Choose A Naming Contest?

Company naming contests allow you to work with dozens of creatives simultaneously. These experienced namers will bring you the best, most creative, and box-checking name options to choose from. You can decide how many unique names you’d like to pick from, set parameters on language, and give us whatever ideas you’d like to incorporate. Our writers, designers, and thinkers will have a chance to win a cash prize if you pick their name – it’s a win-win!

Hatchwise Can Find Your Name – Today!

At Hatchwise, our talented community of creatives has already brainstormed thousands of company names for our many satisfied customers – and we’re ready to start on yours today. We take the information you give us and turn it into original, creative, and professional names for your company. We’re confident in the quality of our work and back it with a money-back guarantee. While focusing on the big picture, Hatchwise will ensure your company name gets you a head start on success.

Crowdsource Your Business Name?

Hatchwise’s business name contests give you access to several name ideas from an incredible group of marketing and naming experts worldwide.

As your chosen company naming service, we ensure you’ll get several options to find the right fit.

Collaborative Contests with Professional Quality

Hatchwise has a community of thousands of talented, global writers using the platform from every walk of life.

We also rank them- Bronze, Silver, and Gold- so you can see who’s truly dedicated to the work. Gold creatives want to be here, are regularly active, and are featured. These tools ensure all the ideas you receive are high quality.

Still, everyone participating in your business naming contest is a naming expert.

Plus, you can communicate your style and needs in the intuitive brief. If you love working with a particular person, you can! We’ll give you the winner’s contact information when you want to work with them again.

A Wide Range of Features

We can help with other naming services as well. You can, of course, use us for your business name contest or brand name competition, but we also offer product naming contests, slogan contests, and logo design contests.

Whatever your startup needs, we can help you with it.

You’ll also find a ton of extras to get your contest noticed and produce great results, including making it private, creating a 48-hour rush contest, starting a highlighted or featured contest, including a designer email blast, and making it a blind contest.

With all your creative needs, a crowdsourced business naming contest can be an excellent way to get dozens of ideas until you find the perfect one.

Amazing Business Name Ideas in 4 Simple Steps

Write a Brief

It all starts with your brief. Our intuitive brief structure makes it easy for you to give your business naming experts the information they need to get their creative juices flowing. Our creatives will give you the best results when you provide plenty of information about what you like and dislike, including keywords you’d like and dislike, the tone you’re going for, and even if you’re a fan of puns.

Creatives Get Brainstorming

Once you’ve filled out your brief, which takes a few minutes, you’ll start receiving ideas in just a few hours. You’ll quickly see great business name ideas tailored to your objectives from creatives across the site. Whatever plan you choose, you’re sure to get the minimum number of ideas and then some. You can sit back and relax as the name contest submissions come in.

Browse and Evaluate Names

You can go through suggestions as they come in, give feedback on things you’d love or would do differently, and get closer to narrowing down your favorite ideas until the time comes to pick a winner. You can request as many revisions as you want. While the creatives are not obligated to make revisions to their entries, most are happy to do so. Your feedback tells them the direction new entries should take as people refine their submissions and new ideas come in.

Pick the Winning Name

Once the contest concludes, it’s your time to choose a winner. The prize amount will come from your plan and go right to the creative who suggested the great name. Once the business name contest is over, and you’ve found the perfect moniker, why try out our product, slogan, or logo design contests to complete your brand identity package?
