When a contest is locked, all its entries are hidden, and a message from a 99designs staff member will be displayed in place of any comments.
99designs may lock a contest if:
- it violates our customer and or community guidelines
- the customer hasn’t declared a winner two weeks after the end of their contest
- there’s some other issue with the contest
The contest’s entries and comments still exist — they’ve just been hidden while we contact the contest holder.
