We have begun allowing new creatives to participate in our contest platform in a controlled manner.
In order to control the number of new participants, the new creatives are required to pay a one time fee of $5 to get access to the contest platform. These fees are used to cover the cost of additional screening that is required to ensure a good fit with our naming contests. The fees are fully refundable if the creatives do not wish to continue after initial screening and contest participation.
We will monitor this for some time and may make additional changes in the signup and screening requirements as needed.
