The April cS Award and the March cS Award Winners! admin | April 2nd, 2013

Back in 2011, we announced a monthly cS Award to honor quality work by designers and writers in the crowdSPRING community.

The April cS Award

No matter your creative endeavor, it’s always a good idea to constantly add dynamic and fresh pieces to your portfolio. You may have noticed that portfolios on crowdSPRING got a recent refresh and are now better than ever. We’d even be so bold as to say its just as wonderful as everything else available on the web. We especially love to see Creatives add fun and quality entries to their profiles on crowdSPRING. In fact… we think you guys should be rewarded for it! April’s cS Award will be “Best New Portfolio.” As an added bonus, we’re going to let you guys vote on who you want to win.

Here’s the scoop on how to participate:

1. You must be an active creative.

2. You must upload at lease 5 new entries to your cS portfolio during the month of April.

3. You do not need to win a project to be eligible for the April cS award.

We’ll choose the 5 -10 finalists that we like the best and put them up for a community vote. The three portfolios that get the most votes will be declared the winners!

Good luck, everyone!

And now…. the March cS Award Winners….

The March cS award offered 3 awards to Creatives who created the most interesting and engaging advertising campaign to help Congress with its abysmal approval ratings. We were really impressed with the creative chops we saw displayed by everyone who participated. Now, if only we could get Congress to actually take your advice…


Award #1 goes to AmeriPaddy  who has been a member of our community since November 2010 and has participated in 70 projects. If you think the name AmeriPaddy is familiar, you are right: Sean was also a winner in the December cS awards! He currently lives in Guatemala but is originally from the U.S. You can view Sean’s stellar project here.





Award #2 was given to netizenjane, who is from the U.S. and has been a crowdSPRING Creative since January 2012. Michelle has participated in 137 projects and has won 10 of those. She specializes in creative and marketing strategy, with over 14 years of experience. Take a look at her winning campaign here.





And last, but certainly not least, balgoe gets Award #3! Jonas is from Germany and joined crowdSPRING in March 2010. He has participated in 20 projects. Be sure to take a little time and browse through his project here.






Thanks to everyone who participated – we love your work and we love having you here as crowdSPRING Creatives!





From many minds, the perfect design. Post your project today and let the crowd wow you!
