If you've recently won a design contest (congrats!), you will enter the Design Handover stage. This is where you transfer copyright for the design to the client and upload your original design files.
Once you’ve done that, the client will confirm they have received what they expected, and we’ll transfer the prize award to your account in the form of 99designs credits (also called "earnings").
Once you’ve received the earnings, you can request a payout using one of our payment providers. This can take up to 10 working days (not including public holidays or weekends), depending on the payment method you choose.
