I think with PayPal they only have to have your email address.
Whether entering a logo design contest is a good idea or not is another question ...

Always be wary of people want your bank details up front, especially if you have to pay to enter.

A similar posting on Deviant Art had a prize of $50 and a 1st October deadline. Also one post here has been removed.

A similar posting on Storm-Artists had a 1st October Deadline with the prize of $150 + royalties!

See DOMC's comments below. It's a shame their wording sounded so like a scam, which it seems not to be, just naivety.

I joined the website to check it out.
No financial info required.
Apparently mentioned for the purpose of doing business.
Contest was posted to the DOMC forum a few hours before being posted here.
DOMC consists of eight musical artists and thirty two members including the newest member - me.
The folks running the show are Very young. Perhaps a bit in experienced. Perhaps not. Looks like a few college aged friends found a talent for computer generated music and are making a business of it.

Current name DOMC was announced Jan 31, 2011

Today we say good bye to Baek Ji Sound Corps and welcome Dream Orbit Music Corps! We here at DOMC are the same composers, plus 2 more to the team. We still will give you quality music so stay tuned for what's to come. Thanks for the support!"


I have dug around on the web enough now to say this looks legit. There is a long history of the same people promoting themselves in a consistent fashion.

No guarantee of course but they do look legit to me.

We aren't out for anyone's money. I understand that using a paypal account may seem odd, but that is the safest and surest way we can think of efficiently giving the money to the winner.

Also, we have to be willing to start somewhere:

No one knows us, so we have to begin building a level of trust with those on and off the net.

Hopefully more people will become interested. We are excited about the types of artwork we will receive and be able to pick from!

And Coram9, we had the deadline set for the beginning of October, but nobody joined. We had a meeting a couple of weekends ago and agreed on extending the deadline to January 2nd (since many college students will be on winter leave, and people may have a bit more free time to work on submissions). The initial prize was in fact $50, but we received many complaints. Realizing that the prize money was indeed too low, we increased it to $150.

We are really trying to put ourselves out there, so I do hope more of you will enter the contest.
