Don't understand what you say in #6 design to award him this contest. Nither professional look nor professional colors. But all dull colors. Plz. don't mind but i have a humble request from you. You should consult a few more people in your group or your relatives before choosing a best design. Because the design you have chosen not looking good at all. I think still u have time to take openion from your close peoples.
I don't understand on which basis you have provided feedback to designers. I have created very clean with best color combinations and looks good to eyes. But you give me 3 star well that is totally depends on you. But i would like to know one thing that did you finalize that first design or there is scope for other designs too? I see both #6 & #4 have put Uncategorized section next to main image, is it the main reason for making them 1st & 2nd?
If you see my design you will find scope for every thing like place for advertisement/ social networking icons etc.
If you suggest me i can make my design more perfect as per your requirement.
