Find an Opportunity
Once you have an account, you can search through the list of project opportunities to submit to.
Navigate to the Discover Opportunities page. You can see a list of available opportunities, ordered by how soon the deadline will expire.
1. Opportunity search bar
You can search for specific projects here, either by project name or organization name.
2. Show by tags
Tags are assigned to projects by the organizer. Click here to display all the available tags. Select a tag to limit the view to only the opportunities you are interested in.
3. Filter options
You can further refine your search with the following filters.
Following - Filter the view to show only the organizations you are following.

4. Open opportunities
All of the opportunities accepting submissions are listed, sorted by deadline.
5. Submission fee

Follow an Organization
Click the flag icon next to the organization name to follow all opportunities created by that organization.
Submit an application
By clicking an opportunity, a new window will open that has all of the details of the project.
When you are ready to begin your application, click Submit in the upper right of the screen.
Filling out the application
Each project you submit to will have a different set of questions. Any questions marked with an asterisk ( * ) are required, and you will not be able to finish your submission without answering them.
Save an application
If you want to save your application so you can complete it later, click the Save Draft button at the bottom of the application. You can access the saved draft from the control panel at the top of the screen.
Verify your email address
Once you have signed up for a project, you will receive an email requesting verification. This step keeps communications secure and prevents fraudulent submissions. If your email is not verified, you will not be able to submit to the project.
