First, check that the image does not exceed the maximum size of 10MB, that it is the right format which is either JPEG (.jpeg, .jpg) or PNG (.png)and that the file name contains only letters or numbers and no other characters. Once you’ve checked that these things are in order, try to upload your images again. If you’re still having trouble after this, contact our support staff at support@nftcreativeawards.com

How will I know if you have received my entry?

You should receive a confirmation email from us shortly after you submit and pay for your work. If you do not receive an email, please verify that your email is correct in our records by logging into the member’s “Home” section and selecting “Profile” that leads to “Edit Profile”.  In addition, if you are using spam-blocking software, please add “nftcreativeawards.com” to your list of approved recipients. If, after doing both of these things, you do not receive an email, please log into the member’s “Home” section, and click on “History” to view your submission status and make sure that all your entries have been paid for.

What is the “History” feature of the member’s “Home” section and how do I use it?
