How to use Contest Builder

Prerequisites: Professional or Business subscription.

From the dashboard, click on Create a contest
Or use the keyboard shortcut by pressing the letter C
Let the Contest Builder home page guide you
Set up and add all your contest information
Or use a template from a previous contest to save time
Preview your contest before scheduling it
Click on Create contest when finished
Or save it as a draft for later review

What's next?

That's it, you've done your part, fantastic! ✨

Now we'll publish your contest and all other configured publications in due course. Entries will be collected as they come in, and you'll be able to see them in real time from your contest's Entries page, as well as statistics from the Statistics page.

When the closing date of your contest is reached, the collection of entries will stop immediately and you'll be able to do the draw (if it hasn't been configured to be done automatically). The process is exactly the same as for the Quick Draw.
