After awarding a winner, you can still choose to buy from the existing entry pool. The bought entry will be marked as a runner-up.
To do this:
- Go to your contest page.
- Hover over the entry that you wish to buy, and select Buy.
- Click Buy Now on the prompt that will appear. You should have sufficient account balance or a verified payment method to successfully buy the entry.
Similar with the contest winner, bought entries will undergo the Contest Handover for the transfer of the entry’s ownership.
Note: The contest prize that you initially set when you started the contest is for the contest winner only; it cannot be divided among the winner and the runners-up. You will have to pay separately for the runners-up.
Completing the Handover with runners-up will not enable the feedback option. It will only be available between you and the winner.
