Contest - Choosing a design
Can I divide my contest prize to multiple winners?
No, you need to award the full amount displayed as contest prize to one winner. However, you can select runner-up winners by buying non-winning entries for the amount specified by the entry owners.
For example, you award your contest prize of $50 USD to one designer but you found another design that you like. Just locate the entry from your contest page and click on the Buy button for the amount that they have given to get the design. Learn more about contest runner-ups here.
