I’m a contest finalist! What does that mean?
If you are selected as a contest finalist, we will let you know by email.
So if you are a finalist, it means the customer’s so impressed by your work that they want your creation, want you to make a couple edits, or want to poll your sound among your peers and their colleagues.
When a customer selects finalists which means that the contest’s prize money will be awarded to one finalist. So the Final round is crunch time: your chance to do your absolute best or solicit support for your idea.
You will want to listen to the customer’s feedback and put everything you can into meeting their needs. By responding to their directions and discussing your designs with them, you will give yourself the best chance of winning the contest. Do not forget that you can also submit entirely new designs in the Final round.
So if inspiration strikes, do not hold back.
In most contests, the Final round lasts for 3 days. If you are a finalist, make sure you are around to refine designs and work with the customer during that time.
