How To Select A Winner
You can select a winner while your contest is active or within 30 days of the close of your contest.
On your Entries tab, go to the Entry that you would like to select as the winner of your contest. In the Actions drop down, click on the Select Winner option. You will be asked for a confirmation. Once you confirm, the winner will be immediately selected.
Note: Once a winner has been selected, it can not be changed.
Can I Register Multiple Domain Names From A Contest?
Every entry submitted to your contest is owned by the person who originally created it until it is paid for. You automatically own the entry that you select as the winner. If you intend to use other entries from the contest, you must compensate the contestants who submitted the entry.
In case of naming contests, if you want to register additional domain names from your contest (or use the name or domain in any other way), you can do so as long as you pay a minimum $100 bonus to the contestants who came up with the names.
For example, if you register 2 additional domain names (in addition to the winning entry) from a contest, you must pay the minimum bonus to each creative for the additional names/domains that you are using.
Minimum Bonus Policy For Receiving IP Rights for Non-Winning Submissions
Naming Contest - $100
Tagline Contest - $100
Logo and all other design contests - $100
Important: If you register a domain, please send a bonus to the creative immediately in order to avoid any interruption in your contest. This bonus will be refunded back to you if you select the same name as the winner of your contest. If you pick a different winner, the bonus will be kept by the creative as compensation for their submission. Failure to send a bonus for registered domains will result in a temporary suspension of the contest until the Creative receives the bonus amount.
How to send a bonus
You can send a bonus to a creative the same way you selected a winner. On your Entries tab, go to the Entry that you would like to select as a bonus. In the Actions drop down, click on the Send Bonus option. A popup window will ask for your payment information.
