Hey Kelsey, There may be some confusion-- The Design-A-Day SpoonChallenge is just for the month of March. This particular structure is not replacing the weekly contests. It is just happening in between during the transition period. Every so often, we hold a series called a SpoonChallenge (http://blog.spoonflower.com/spoonchallenge/) where our community can choose to follow along with daily content delivered to their inbox. You may choose to participate or not, and you can follow along at your own pace should you choose. The month long contest structure in its new form will officially begin in April. Yes, you will technically have less chances to get into the top 10, but more time to hone your design and the prizes will be more robust and hopefully will make a bigger impact. Thanks and we appreciate your feedback.
