What is a Private Contest?
Are you concerned about the confidentiality of your contest? By upgrading to Private, your contest will be hidden from all the search engines. Only the users logged in to our site will be able to view the contest. This upgrade costs $25 USD.
You can upgrade your contest while starting it and even after it is posted.
On the Start a Contest page
On the Start a Contest page page, tick Private from the list of contest upgrades.
On the Upgrades tab of your contest page
1. Go to the Upgrades tab on your contest page.
2. Tick the Private upgrade.
3. Click Upgrade Contest once done.
Once you upgrade a contest as Private, you will not be able to make it public on your end anymore. This is why we always advise contest holders to check everything before posting a contest.
