You can extend your contest at any time given these conditions:
- Your contest is open.
- Your contest is pending but not locked.
If you meet one of the two requirements mentioned above, follow these steps to extend your contest:
1. Click Upgrade Contest on your contest page.
2. Tick Extend.
3. Select how many days you want to extend your contest. Available options are 3, 5, 7, 14 or 21 days.
4. Click Upgrade Contest.
The options, which are dependent on how many days you want to extend, are priced differently. The indicated fees are percentages based on the contest prize. Here’s the breakdown:
- 3 days - 15% of current prize
- 5 days - 20% of current prize
- 7 days - 30% of current prize
- 14 days - 40% of current prize
- 21 days - 50% of current prize
Half of your Extend fee will be added to the overall contest prize to reward the dedicated freelancers who have submitted entries from the start. Your contest will also be automatically upgraded to a Guaranteed Contest if you choose to extend.
