Create an Entry

Enter the contest by selecting a category and creating an entry directly from the category page. This will take you to the page builder tool where you can add images, videos, text and other widgets.

During this step, you will also be asked to add a title, description and thumbnail image. You can edit this at any point, but it's good to be prepared.

Add Progress to your Entry Page

Every time you make some good progress on your entry you should create an update. This will allow members to see how the entry is coming along, offer advice and give you a bit of encouragement.
