Your contest page is where all the information pertaining to your contest is stored.
The Top Bar holds all the basic information about your contest, as well as a few actions.
- Contest Type indicates the package you chose for your contest: Budget, Pro, or Elite. Clicking on Add Winner will allow you to add multiple prizes of equal value so you may purchase and receive design files for more than one design.
- Time Remaining indicates the amount of time left until the contest closes. Clicking here will allow you to either extend the contest or end it early. Contests can be extended once by purchasing a 5 day extension.
- Entries is a count of the number of submissions received. Click here and you can purchase upgrades that will make your contest stand out, increase participation so you will receive more entries. You can highlight your contest, feature it, send out an Elite email, or add multiple bonus prizes of $50 each.

- Share allows you to share your contest page with your social networks. Get feedback, invite designers you know to compete, or share because you think HiretheWorld is an great service.
- Settings is where you can choose to make your contest "Private", meaning it will be hidden from search engines, our marketing materials, designers sign a non-disclosure agreement to participate, and will show up everywhere on the site as a "Private contest". You may also choose to make your contest blind to receive more original entries.
- Last Rated indicates the last time you logged in and provided feedback to designers. You’ll want to keep this number low to show designers you are engaged in this contest.
