This may be a common issue but, since I’m new here, I wanted to see if anyone has any advice.
I’ve entered about a dozen contests. In most cases, the contest holders have viewed my entries but not rated them. Not even a “No Thanks.” In one case, the contest ended without the CH even viewing them. Without any kind of feedback, it’s difficult to add and withdraw entries. I’m not complaining they don’t like my entries. I word in Marketing and PR so I can take rejection. I’m complaining they’re not giving even the smallest amount of feedback. Or in some case, not even seeing them.
This kind of holds that entry hostage for being used in someone else’s contest. If I used the entry in multiple contests, what happens if one CH who hasn’t rated the entry suddenly makes it a winner. Do the same entries in other contests get automatically withdrawn at the point?
I’d love to see a mechanism whereby CH’s are prodded, reminded or even required to rate every entry in timely manner.
