I might consider using this approach if I was working with a group of
students; have them submit their efforts for class credit, feedback
and some insight into how work is evaluated and selected, then pay the
"winner" full market fee for the use of his or her design. But I'd be
embarrassed to have my name or company associated with this as a means
of obtaining work from professionals with experience and credentials.
Unless maybe I had $100,000 to award as the "grand prize" and a couple
of dozen pallets of techie toys to hand out as "thanks for entering"
prizes.
