How do I create a voting only contest?
There are times when you may want to run a contest without allowing entrants to upload entries. In these cases, you may want to upload the entries yourself.
To stop anyone from uploading entries you can simply set the upload start and end dates to be sometime in the past.
Select “Manage” for the specific contest and navigate to the Settings tab.
Navigate down to the upload start and end periods.
Set the date to a time in the past. Users to the contest site will now not be able to enter new entries to public.
