How to Create a Code Contest:

  2. Follow the directions on this video and blog post until you reach the ‘Add more entry methods’ step. Choose ‘code entry.’

3. Choose to have contestants enter one code to enter, or set-up multiple codes. If you choose to use multiple codes, you will upload them in a CSV format.

4. We’ve provided a template that you can quickly download and use to enter your contest codes.

  • Code_word: Codes can be up to 250 characters and are not case sensitive. Combine numbers, letters and/or words. 
  • Single_use: This will make the keyword available for just one person.   Please enter 0 for allowing multiple people to enter your code and 1 if you want just one person to use it.
  • Points_per_entry: If you enter 0 here we will use the number of entry points you set up for the entry method.  You can change this number to whatever you like if you want to override the number of entry points you set up for this entry method.
