We reserve the right, but are not obliged, to stop/cancel a contest, posting/entry and/or transaction and/or to refuse access to this website or services as a result of violating one or more restrictions named in point 2.

Also we reserve the right to pay out to a winning designer, 4 weeks after the contest ended, if the client is not reachable via phone or email, even if he did not confirm the final receival of the design documents. 


(I) Brandsupply. This is an online market place for creative services, where the client can place a project and designer can post their designs/proposals via online upload. Clients can choose a winner when the contest period is up. Brandsupply acts only as facilitating party. 

(II) Postings. Users are responsible for all contents placed/posted on our site and resulting consequences.  

(III) End of contest. After the contest period is up, the client has the possibility to choose a winner. By doing this, the award and the success fee becomes due. 

Client agrees to choose a winner and inform Brandsupply within 7 days after the contest period is up. Has a winner been chosen by the client, he or she is obliged to buy the design. The designer is obliged, in accordance with these terms & conditions, to provide the design. 

In a guaranteed contest the contest holder is obligated to choose a winner if a minimum of 15 designs were uploaded in the contest. This has to happen within 7 days after the contest has ended. If for any reason the contest holder can’t pick a winner in time the contest holder has to contact the Brandsupply Customer Service before the deadline. If that does not happen the Brandsupply Team reserves its right to choose a winner.

(IV) Tax and accountability. Each user is independently responsible for tax allegation  and compliances of other legal obligations. 


A membership with Brandsupply is free of charge. Clients pay a placement fee for publishing the contest. If the clients picks a winner at the end of a contest, the previously self-determined award and a success fee becomes due. The placement and the success fee vary depending on the chosen package.

The “no cure, no pay” guarantee does not apply to a guaranteed contest since the contest holder pays the full amount (placement fee, award, success fee) up front and therefore guarantees the payment of the award and the selection of a winner.


Payment of placement fee becomes due immediately with creating the contest through one of our offered payment options. Brandsupply works together with a renowned Payment Service, in order to ensure all payments. As soon as the client chooses a winner, the self-determined price/award and the success fee become due.

In case it’s a guaranteed contest the contest holder has to pay the full amount (placement fee, award, success fee) before the placing the contest because the contest holder guarantees the payment of the award.


The user accepts that Brandsupply, its management and employees are not liable for the behaviour of other users, members or others and possible resulting consequences/damages. Brandsupply is not traditional auction website. We offer a platform to combine demand and supply in form of a contest. We are no party in the agreement between client and designers, except possible own contests. 

Although we are trying our best to offer a high-quality internet platform, we do not have control over all content and therefore do not guarantee for quality, security and legality of contests/creative services, information from/about members and/or other aspects in connection with this website and its service.   

Except for the payment of the success fee to us, neither users nor Brandsupply can be held responsible for delays or omissions or other standards because of strike, fire, natural disaster, telecommunication problems, hardware or internet trouble and/or other failure that lies out of Brandsupply’s influence.
