    Maybe Nordeus should pick the winners and then request all creation-data be given to them in the future. (lets say psd files, everything used)
    Usually no one will take action if it is an isolated case, however if it is proven that copyrighted material is being used regularly and sold for profit there are many small steps that can be taken before full legal action would have to be called in (with associated costs, of course)

    First of all, a series of complaints from you - the users - should alert the company to awareness that they are not doing enough to prevent illegal activity taking place. Let me be clear that the illegal activity is not just people using those images in a forum competition, but actually then selling those images on for profit

    Secondly, if people on here have the will to, the copyright holders or the companies who sell the images for (one time) use would be contacted to let them know what is happening

    Then, those individuals/companies have a series of actions to take. Their first step would be to let Nordeus know they are using their images illegally. Their second step would be to issues a cease and desist letter (this is not an expensive step). Thirdly, they would appeal to Google, Facebook, Apple and others citing a breach of DMCA in an attempt to get the forum, T11 site and the app banned from those engines and market places

    It's only the final step of pursuing legal action in court that actually has a significant cost (other than time)

    Any freelance individual can follow the same steps if their copyright is breached

    Although my design wasn't selected. Did my design come under the "80% stolen copyrighted designs " ?? can't be as I drew it all in paint, which means it was "pure ****". If so seems abit unfair, but guess I'll try harder.

    Is there anyway of finding out where I went wrong, please?

    That's one forum users opinion, don't take it to heart. Probably got a bit of a superiority complex because they won a competition. If it was with the same logo they have as an avatar, my view is it's not a great design

    But that's the thing with design, it's totally subjective. So don't worry too much about what others think (whether bad or good), just keep practicing until you can create something you like

    And if it helps, Vincent Van Gogh was ridiculed in his time for the art he created. He's probably the most revered painter in history now

    i could design an eagle from scratch but i used that to save time since everyone use stock images and since it's not against the rules of the competition. (and not only this competition. i could use the exact same eagle as a large company logo and i wouldnt have any legal issues)
    on the other hand, of course, if you make a rip-off a copyrighted logo and people are buying just because its related to a real football team logo (for example) you ll have copyright issues. that's the difference between stock images and copyrighted logos. this eagle is not a brand or anything.
    nordeus should reward original designs if you ask me but that's another topic

    maybe because you used an actual image (copy pasted as well) as knight and not a vector with 2 or 3 colors as the rules of the competition require...?

    Maybe T11 can do a copyright complaint thread right after the competition thread closes before they pick winners. I'm not sure if everything would be covered but i'm sure it would help.

    The color limit rule is confusing though. Some entries have more than two in an element.
