Contest - Payment



Do I have to pay to enter?

No, contest entry is free for designers.


The contest holder has paid to organise a contest and strongly encourages you to participate!

How much does a contest cost for freelancers?

Submitting entries to a contest is free for all the participants. 

If you are the winning freelancer, contest fees will be charged when the prize money is released to your account after the Contest Handover. The freelancer contest fee is 10% of the prize amount or $5.00 USD, whichever is greater.

When do I get paid?

Designers, the prize money is released once the contest holder accepts your submitted design files and completes the Contest Handover.  

Can I choose the currency I get paid in?

No, you can be paid only in the currency in which the contest is listed.

How can I be sure I'll get paid after completing the design handover?
