1.Communicating with Users

"Message & Inquiry" Function

During the entry period, users are able to send inquiries to the Event Organizer. You may read and respond to them from the "Message & Inquiry" page. The Event Organizer may also send messages to users who are following the project or have submitted an entry. This function can also be used to contact winners after results are announced.

When a new message has been received, a red circle will appear in the upper right hand corner of the menu.

B. Reading and Responding to Messages
