Why is the contest holder taking so long to declare a winner?

Once a contest has ended, the contest holder has 21 days to choose a winner.

Sometimes, contest holders can have trouble choosing the winner. They may also need to present designs to clients or other stakeholders for review. In these cases, they may ask us to extend the time they have to choose the winner.

If a contest is extended, we’ll make a note of the extension in the contest’s comments.

Try to be patient. If the contest holder’s having trouble choosing a winner, it usually means the contest entries were outstanding. Well done!
