What is an Entry?
In a Faceoff, Poll, Quiz or other contest formats, you can submit your own options/candidates/questions, which can be part of the contest. This is known as an entry. These can be in the form of images, text or video.
Do I get prize points if I create an entry? How many points do I get per entry?
You don’t get any prize points if you create/add an entry, but the fact that you played a part in making it more fun is what counts. If that doesn’t make you happy here’s what will – some of our contests also have prizes for the best entry! Now isn’t that a good enough reason for you?
Can I delete an entry after creating it?
No, entries once submitted cannot be deleted as other users vote for or against these entries and their points depend on it.
When will the contest that I created be visible on the website?
Entries and contests created by users are moderated for the safety and security of the site. A contest created by a user will be visible on the site immediately after it’s been approved by our moderators.
Can I upload my own videos on the website for any contest?
Yes you can. In fact you can also add videos directly from YouTube by just entering the URL of the video.
What hardware/software or other resources are essential to create an entry?
You’ll obviously need a PC.
Windows 95 or latest.
Internet Explorer 5 or above OR Mozilla Firefox.
A 266 mhz processor or better.
32 MB RAM or more.

How do I tell people about my contest?
Go to the contest that you have created and then click on the “Share contest” option. Enter the required details in the pop up window and click on “Send”. Your friend will receive an invitation by email.
Can I edit my own contest?
Contests once created cannot be edited. You can, however, add more entries to your contest whenever you feel like.
Can I pull down an entry that I don’t like?
No, you cannot delete an entry that you don’t like.
Can I create a practice entry?
No, you can’t create a practice entry but we don’t think you’ll ever need to. Creating a contest on Contests2win is as simple as a walk in the park.
Will I be informed by email when an entry has been added to my contest or when my contest goes live?
Yes, you will certainly be informed via email as soon as your contest goes live.
Can others add entries to my contest?
Others can add entries to your contest only if you want them to. You have to specify this while creating your contest. The interface has an option to allow this or not.
