Contest - Upgrades
Can I increase the prize I'm offering?
Yes, you can increase the contest prize as long as you have sufficient funds.
Can I make my Private Contest public?
Unfortunately it’s not possible to make a Private contest public. Some designers specifically enter private contests because their designs are “protected” by being inaccessible to search engines and users who are not logged in.
Can I remove my contest from search engines?
Yes. You can hide your contest from search engines at any time by upgrading it to a Private contest! Only users logged in to Freelancer can see it!
How do I upgrade my contest?
Just select an upgrade feature while creating your contest or click "Edit Contest" to upgrade once it's active:
What is a Featured contest?
It’s an affordable and easy way for you to attract designers by having it prominently displayed on the home page.
What is a Guaranteed Contest?
A Guaranteed contest attracts more designs by committing to select a winner and awarding the prize money.
What is a Private contest?
A Private contest is an optional upgrade you can use to prevent your contest from being found on Internet search engines. We recommend using it when confidentiality is essential.
What is a Sealed Contest? Why are the other contest entries hidden?
A Sealed contest is an optional upgrade you can use to ensure designers submit original contest entries. Whereas a normal contest enables designers to view all the submitted designs, a Sealed contest means only you, the contest holder, can see all the entries.
What is a Top Contest?
Top Contest automatically invites top freelancers to join your contest. This ensures that you get high quality entries from experienced freelancers.
You can upgrade Top Contest on "Promote Contest" section while creating your contest or click “Upgrade Contest” once it’s published.
What is an Urgent Contest?
An Urgent Contest is an optional upgrade you can use to complete your contest in 1-2 days. It is automatically upgraded to Guaranteed to make sure you get fast results and get your favorite entry sooner.
You can upgrade by selecting URGENT above "Promote Contest" section while creating your contest.
