At 99designs, quality and trust within our design community are of the utmost importance. As a way to motivate new and emerging designers to improve their skill sets, we set limits on contest participation.
Therefore, designers are limited to 10 contests per month until 99designs has reviewed their portfolio, onsite performance and professionalism to determine the limit can be lifted. After the limitation is lifted, designers may enter as many contests as they’d like.
The current limit for designers is 10 contests in any 28 day period. Each of these 10 contests is on a rolling counter, meaning the contests don't all "reset" at once.
It may help to think in terms of these as 10 open "slots". 28 days after you have used one of your slots, it will become available again. This method is used to avoid a rush at the end of a calendar month.
Contest limitation is based on how well a designer performs on the following criteria:
