Here at Hatchwise we take pride in the quality of our designs and do our very best to ensure that each design is 100% original and the creative’s own concept.
In order to monitor contests we have a “report” feature on entries allowing creatives to report designs found violating our Creative Guidelines.
How To Report A Design
To report a design please click on the “report/flag” icon located on the design:
Select from the following options the reason that you are reporting the design (be as detailed as possible):
Once you have reported the design you can view it in Design Court. To visit Design Court you will need to click on the arrow located next to your username in your account:
How To Use Design Court
In Design Court you can see reported designs, review the reason they were reported and then vote on whether you think they are Guilty or Not Guilty.
Once a reported case is reviewed and resolved the design will be removed from Design Court.
