  • Ensure your contest title clearly describes and promotes your contest.

  • Consider increasing the prize money or upgrading the contest to Guaranteed, which encourages more freelancers to submit better quality entries.

  • Take advantage of other available upgrade options to level up your contest. For example, the Top Contest attracts high-quality entries by inviting top freelancers to join your contest.

  • Don’t wait for participants! Use your social networks to spread the word and bring the competition to you. Post a short message and your contest link on your blog, Facebook or any other social networking site you use.

  • Ask your network of friends to do the same.

  • Tweet about your design contest and include a short link to it. Ask your followers to retweet it.

  • Check out other active contests similar to yours that have lots of entries. Read their design briefs, contest titles and check the contest details for more ideas.
