Special Prizes are our way of telling the community what we are looking for in a challenge. Special Prizes are different for each challenge, so be sure to read them carefully. The list is found in the Challenge Description pdf. The designs that best fill those descriptions will be selected to win a Special Prize, receive a higher prize payment and be featured in a blog post (along with any runners up).
Special Prizes are selected from among the winning designs (both Top-rated and Editors Picks) and are announced a few weeks after the winners.
