  1. Liz- can you confirm how many designs we can submit?
    In the contest rules it says “submit at least 1”, so I’m assuming we can enter more than one right? Like 1 design for each category I guess. Thanks!

  2. Hi Christina!
    I have submitted a couple, you do one each time and select the category, include the link etc. The ‘Submit at least one’ is a bit misleading I’m not why its written! I mean, you can’t submit less than one right? haha!

  3. Have the winners of this design challenge been announced and I missed it? I’d love to see the winning entries!
