Step #2: Add Design Elements (Legacy)

This Article Is For:

  • All users who have 'Promotions' permissions
  • This is applicable to all SoCast Themes

Requirements:

  • If you have transitioned to SoCast via Promosuite you will not have access to the contesting feature. Please reach out to Promosuite for details.

The Contest 'Design' tab is used to upload assets and apply customizations. Optimal contest designs typically achieve a balance between striking and simple. The title and ‘header Image’ usually set the contest theme, and it is recommended that the same designs are applied to all content promoting it. The description should be colourful but concise, make a clear offer, and highlight what’s unique or exciting about the event. Ensure that all background and text colours are brand-appropriate and legible. Custom entry fields can be used to gather additional qualifying information, such as a song title for a pop idol contest.
