Bring your memories back to life with a Photo Restoration Contest

We preserve our most precious memories in photographs. Unfortunately, those printed images are subject to the ravages of time just like their subjects. It is heartbreaking to watch your treasured memories deteriorate as they become faded, yellowed, or damaged by water or heat. A Hatchwise photo restoration contest is an easy way to breathe new life into your old photos for one affordable price. Submit an original image, provide any special instructions, set your price, and let dozens of talented photo editors send you their best restoration work.

Common questions

What does it cost?
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.​

You can run any type of design or naming contest on Hatchwise, if we do not have a specific category for your design contest please use the Custom Graphic Design category. We do not allow contests that contain any of the following: anything that may be: construed as obscene, pornographic, illegal or offensive in any way.

Yes! You can award a winner whenever you want.
You get one (1) completed entry per contest. If you need different versions of the completed entry (black and white, different tag lines etc…) you can hire the winning creative to do it after the contest is over (you get their contact details with the completed entry). If you need a entry designed for more than one company, or need more than one entry for the same company you would need to run more than one contest. Creatives have the option when submitting their entry to your contest to allow you to buy their entry once you have awarded a first place winner. Additional designs cost $100 each if available after your contest ends. All of the designs that you do not award or purchase remain the sole property of the submitting creative(s).

Absolutely! When filling out your contest brief, or at any time while your contest is active you can add images to the brief for the creatives to use as a reference when creating design concepts.

After you award your contest winner you can purchase any of the other available entries as “Additional Designs”. The option to purchase them will appear directly under the entry, and you may buy as many as you like.
