Competition

Is it possible to find out how many submissions were received?

Thanks!

    We should be able to. It's a public record. No reason for someone to have to make a FOI request. But to be honest I think there was a very low number of entries, maybe even fewer than 100. That's why there has been no mention.

    Hi Brian and David,

    We have released the number of designs submitted. I apologize for not posting it here in the discussions section. We received 178 designs. The United States Mint is very pleased with the outcome of the design competition. Judging the designs will be difficult based on the exceptional quality of submissions.

    Best of luck to all who submitted a design!

    Hi Leslie,

    Will there be any near end updates or progress reports such as "we've narrowed it down to 2 designs" or something like that? Also, will we be told which designs, though not the winning design, were most strongly liked by the judges overall? For the designers who entered, this would be helpful to know. Thanks.

    I do believe at one point it stated that the top 100 would be notified by email. Of course this might change since only 178 designs were submitted.

    Hi Louis and John,

    All semifinalists will go public on Challenge.gov. That means tthat those designs have made it through the suitability phase, round 1 judging, round 2 judging and round 3 judging. At this time, we do not know exactly how many designs will become semifinalists.

    Thanks Leslie. I'm assuming, because I did not find it in the rules that they wouldn't, that the finalist's designs will be made public? As a designer, I would love to see other's designs that made it through to the finalist's round. I hope that we will be able to see those top contending designs....I'm sure they are all creative and excellent.

    Thanks for the continued updates, Leslie!

    I'm sure looking forward to seeing all the other semi-finalist's designs as well! Hoping beyond hope I make it in!! :-)

    Hi Michael,

    Here's what the rules state about semi-finalists being notified, "Check your email on and around May 31..." That certainly doesn't rule out the next few days in which you may receive notification IMHO.

    Your design is very creative....don't give up hope yet.

    Perhaps Leslie can give us a hint of what day the semi-finalists will be notified so that the suspense doesn't get the better of the rest of us. :-)

    Hi Louis,

    I posted last night and this morning. All the semifinalists have been notified via email.

    Thanks Leslie, I did not see notice of this in the discussions on Challenge.gov..

    Will the semi-finalist's designs be made public at some point?
