Here is an excerpt from the 'client help' section of the site:

Once the contest has ended the Contest Holder will have 7 days to select the winning designer in the Judging Phase.
You choose your Winner in this phase or get any final revisions from the #1 Designer. Arrange in advance for your decision makers to be available within the time frame of the Judging phase.
The site will not automatically choose a winner during this time. During the Judging phase, you may still get revisions from multiple Designers, move ranks and provide feedback as during the Open Phase. You may contact them via Private Message so they know you want revisions; rank as #1 the Designer from whom you want revisions first. When the Designer's revisions are complete, repeat the process with other Designers. Only the #1 ranked Designer may submit revisions in the Judging phase. If you require work with more Designers, please email Support to request more time in Top 5 Phase.
Please use the Judging phase to get your final revisions, not the Wrap Up.
Select a Winner
1. You will need to make sure the top (3) spots are held by different Designers and that a minimum of (10) designs are ranked. This is done to spread out the site points designated by the site as a reward for the Designers' participating in your contest.
2. Then you can Select a Winner. You will need to confirm the ranking twice to close the contest. Once you select a winner there is no turning back. Make sure you or your representatives know this.

Sorry, I forgot the contest is still in 'Top 5' mode...

Here is info regarding 'Top 5' mode:

In this phase the field is narrowed to allow to work your five favorite designers, which can be changed at anytime. Limiting submissions to the top 5 designers ensures more personalized attention and dedicated service. A designer is much more likely to go the distance with you if they are only competing with four others, instead of dozens and dozens.
"Top 5" means your Top 5 designers, not necessarily your top five designs.
"Top 5" mode allows you rank many designs but only the top five designers can submit.
You can rank your top five designers at any time during the contest in addition to the "Top 5" phase. You can get revisions to current entries in this phase or request totally new ideas from them - they can also submit new ideas by themselves.
Example: You rank the 1st designer in the top five, then four more of his designs in the #2-5 rank. Then, you rank the 2nd designer in the #7 rank with a few of his designs etc. You can rank multiple designs but only the top five ranked designers will be able to submit.
You can move ranks around during the Top 5 Phase and bring back 'not interested' designs if you wish.
The "Top 5" phase will last for 2 days, and once complete will move to the "Judging" phase.
