How long do design contests take, and what's involved?

Design contests work over several rounds, with a total of 7 days* in the qualifying round and final round where designers can submit and refine designs. If you find something you like sooner, you can select your finalists or award a winner early too, without having to wait until the end of the round.

*Website and app design contests have 6 days in the qualifying round, and 5 days in the final round. Contests with multiple deliverables (such as Logo & Business Card and Logo & Brand Identity Pack) have 10 days to finalize files in the handover. 


Pro Tips

  • You can see where you are in the process and how much time you have left by hovering over the timeline below the title of your contest. Timeline_screenshot_for_support_article.png
  • Want a design quicker? Reduce the rounds by running a fast-tracked contest. If you need more time, you can also apply an extension to give designers more time to submit and tweak designs.
  • If you are having issues following the contest timeline, feel free to contact our Support Team to discuss some flexible alternatives.
