Under normal circumstances we require you to select a winner within 7 days of the contest ending. If an unexpected situation arises that makes this difficult please let us know.
Most clients have a very good idea of who the winner is before the contest ends, so in most cases, the selection deadline is trivial. We allow a one time, 3 day extension of the contest if you need more time or additional entries from the community.
If you have chosen and confirmed a winner but forgot to approve the funds to be sent to the winner, LogoTournament will wait 7 days, after which the funds will be approved by staff.
If a winner has not been selected within 2 weeks of the contest ending (still in Judging phase), we will do a final follow-up by email. If there is no response, LogoTournament Support will select a winner and distribute the prize based on existing ranking, existing CH comments and/or community feedback. This policy is rarely initiated but is in place to maintain a high level of Designer confidence and participation in our community. Thank you for understanding this policy.
