What Daisy said is good advice.You have to just move on to current contests and let closed contests run their course. Something eventually will happen with them.
Please be aware too that even if you are shortlisted, does not necessarily mean you will win.If you are here long enough,you will find that until or unless the contest is awarded…it is anyone’s win.I have several times been the only love it/shortlisting/high rating in a contest, and still lost to someone else.I have also had the opposite happen, where I was not shortlisted or high rated and still won.
So this is kind of a waiting game and you have to be willing to just let it play out.
It’s often a hard gig.There are no guaranteed wins, and you can work really hard here and not have it pay off. But in the end, you have to decide if its worth your time and effort to take a chance.
