Mention logo competition sites to established, in work designers and they will probably tell you how they are taking work from their plate. They lower design standards and can’t offer clients the full design service that they need.

On the other hand they provide a great platform for new, upcoming designers to cut their teeth. It’s also a great way to build a portfolio and you can earn a bit of money.

You can check out 2 such sites at LogoSauce and 99designs.

As for taking work from the table of traditional designers I think there is room for both. Logo competitions can never provide the service that a full web design agency can and there are, I believe, plenty of clients who what these benefits.
