The higher the prize the more entries you can expect
Attract more experienced creatives 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. 


We have pricing for all budgets, higher priced 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.​

Everybody here works very hard, even if you think a submitted entry is the most disgusting thing you have ever seen in your life there is still a good chance that someone took quite a bit of time on it so politely tell them why you don’t like it. There is never any reason to be rude. Life is short, let’s make it as pleasant as possible for everybody.
Even though our money back guarantee (when applicable) often means that you do not have to pick a winner if you don’t want to please don’t run a contest unless you are actively planning on selecting a winner. The prize amount versus the amount of work that is done per contest is very reasonable, and by selecting a winner and paying the prize for your contest you are showing your appreciation for all of the hard work that has been done for you.
Although only original artwork is allowed to be submitted to creative contests on Hatchwise, and we remove anything that is flagged as being unoriginal, because of the fact that all of the creatives that participate  are independent contractors and do not work directly for us Hatchwise is simply the middleman in your contest and makes no claims whatsoever as to the originality of any of the entries that are submitted. You should do your own research and consult with a trademark attorney before using any creative material in trade or business. This applies to any creative agency and not just the creatives here at Hatchwise.
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.
“Wow- you delivered even more than I expected. Great service and experience!”


All About Domain Naming Contests

Tired of finding out all the creative domain names you want for your business are already licensed? It’s getting harder and harder to find domain names that are well thought-out, efficient, fitting, creative, AND unregistered. But a company without a memorable domain name is doomed to roam the outer edges of the internet forever. It can be almost impossible to cut through the noise of the products, companies, and services that are competing for customer attention on the world wide web. But if you want to have a fighting chance at getting your company some visibility, you need, first and foremost, a creative domain name. Something that will stick in people’s heads when they read it in online or on a subway ad. Getting people to your website is half the battle, and once you choose your domain name, you can’t go back, so you’ll want to make sure it’s the best one money can buy.

That’s where Hatchwise comes in. We source dozens of creatives from all backgrounds and ask them to brainstorm a custom domain name for your business that fits all of your creative criteria. It’s really quite simple: you fill out a short creative brief describing your company and what you want your name to encapsulate, and then you choose from three different levels of pricing available—bronze, silver, and gold. The succeeding increase in price for each package means more entries and more prize money for the winning creative, who will give you the rights to their creative material upon being selected, minus any commission collected by Hatchwise. There are also custom pricing packages available.

Hatchwise uses crowdsourced creativity to deliver the best possible results to you, our clients. For a reasonable fee, you get to sit back, relax, and watch dozens of creatives come up with clever and fitting names for your domain, and your hardest job is going through all of the excellent choices to find the best one! The perfect domain name for your business is out there waiting to be created. Let us help you capture the creativity that will result in a memorable and fitting name for your enterprise.


We’re passionate about every single creative project on Hatchwise being the best it can possibly be. If you need help or have questions we’re here for you! Our support team is responsive, helpful, and has all the answers.

“Wow- you delivered even more than I expected. Great service and experience!”
