How do I create an account?
Click here to find the "create account" form. Fill in your name, contact information, and email and password, and you're set! When you sign up, you'll be logged in automatically and can start creating your entries right away.
Where do I go to submit entries?
When you first log into your account, you'll see a "Start a new entry" form. Simply choose which category you want to enter, give your entry a title, and click the "Start" button. In the form that loads, you will find all the information you need in order to submit an entry to your selected category. You don't have to complete your entry all in one sitting. Hit the "Save" button any time, and come back to it later.
When you're finished, tap the "Add to cart" button at the bottom of the entry form. Your entries are considered "officially entered" once payment for your entry fees has been received.
How do I pay online?
We never store your credit card information on the website. Payment is processed by Stripe. Tap the "Pay" button, and a Stripe form will pop into your screen where you can fill in your credit card information and process the payment.
Option: You could click the "Remember me" checkbox to allow Stripe to remember your payment information so that you don't have to fill in out next time. In this case, Stripe will ask for your mobile number and will confirm with a text message the next time you use Stripe, saving you the hassle of typing in your card information over and over.
What if I'm not able to pay online with a credit card?
No problem! At checkout, click the "Invoice me" button instead of the "Pay" button. This will send an email to use automatically informing us that you'd like to pay by invoice instead. You'll receive an email, too, as a record of your invoice request. Once we've received your payment, your entries will be available to our judges.
Can I make changes to my entry after I've submitted it?
Yes, you can continue to edit your entries until the submission deadline has passed. After the deadline, you will be able to view your entries, but the editing controls will be disabled.
Do I need any kind of special software to make my entries?
This awards system is entirely web-based. You can create your entries on your phone, iPad, laptop, or any computer. All you need is a browser.
How do you protect my information?
Your account is protected by industry-leading 4096-bit encryption, sensitive information (such as any personal information you enter into you account) is stored as encrypted values, and the entire system is backed up every day.
