After all of your prizes have a submission selected as a winner on Devpost, you are ready to announce the winners to the world. See the Ending the judging period and selecting winners article for more details. Before hitting Publish, make sure the below messages are to your liking first:
Update to all participants
Add or edit the winner announcement in the Updates section. We suggest thanking participants and acknowledging all the work put into the submissions.
Message to winners
An automatic email will be sent to the winners once you announce winners on the platform.
You have the option to add a custom message to the winners from the Announce Winners tab before publishing the winners immediately or scheduling it for the future. We suggest adding prize fulfillment information or the next steps for the winners in this message.
Once you hit the Publish winners now button or once the date passes for your scheduled winner announcement, the Update and message to winners will be sent and your Project Gallery will be updated to show winner banners.
Congratulations on running a hackathon on Devpost! We hope you enjoyed using the platform.
