The ability to submit entries to a contest is based upon two factors:

a) Your overall Percentile Ranking Score

b) Your Ratings on current contest

Here are the specific rules for number of entries allowed per contest:

  • Creatives with Percentile Ranking Score of 60% or below: 2 active entries (4 total including withdrawn entries)
  • Creatives with Percentile Ranking Score between 60% and 65%: 3 active entries (5 total including withdrawn entries)
  • Creatives with Percentile Ranking Score between 65% and 70% : 5 active entries (10 total including withdrawn entries)
  • Creatives with  Percentile Ranking Score between 70% and 75%: 10 active entries (15 total including withdrawn entries)
  • Creatives with  Percentile Ranking Score between 75% and 80%: 15 active entries (20 total including withdrawn entries)
  • Creatives with  Percentile Ranking Score between 80% and 85%: 20 active entries (30 total including withdrawn entries)
  • Creatives with  Percentile Ranking Score between 85% and 90%: 25 active entries (35 total including withdrawn entries)
  • Creatives with  Percentile Ranking Score greater than 90%: No Entry Limits

In addition, if you receive one high rating in the current contest, you will be allowed to submit bonus 10 entries.

If you receive more than one high ratings in the current contest, you will no longer have any entry limits in that contest. 

Some examples to illustrate this: 

Example 1: You have a Percentile Ranking Score of 92%. You can submit unlimited entries in a contest. However please keep in mind that if you submit an excessive amount of entries without receiving high ratings, your percentile score may drop below 90%.

Example 2: You have a Percentile Ranking Score of 77%, and you receive one “LIKE IT” ratings on current contest. You will be allowed to submit a total of 20 entries in the current contest (10 based on your Percentile Ranking Score, and 10 bonus based upon your current contest rating).

Example 3: You have a Percentile Ranking Score of 83%, and you have not received any high ratings on current contest so far. You will be allowed to submit a total of 15 entries in the current contest.

Example 4: You have a Percentile Ranking Score of 78%, and you receive two “LOVE IT” ratings on current contest. You will be allowed to submit unlimited number of entries in the current contest.

Notes:

  • If your quality score falls below an acceptable threshold as a result of submitting too many entries per contest, we might further restrict your account. 
  • If you are a new user, and have participated in less than 10 contests, you will be allowed to submit 5 or 10 entries based upon your submission ratings. We do not calculate the Percentile Ranking Score until you have participated in at least 10 contests
  • If you were featured in the Leaderboard for the previous month, you will be entitled to a minimum of 25 entries for the current month.
  • You can see your Percentile Ranking Score on the “Submit Entry” or on your public profile page.
