Watchers are designers who subscribe themselves to ‘watch’ various contests. It’s mostly a tool used by designers to keep track of contests they are interested in, but any registered user can watch a contest. By watching a contest, you’re kept up to date about what’s happening, as it happens.When watching contests, you’ll receive the same email notifications that participants do.
This tool is the easiest way to stay informed about what's going on in any currently running design contest. For contest holders, this is a helpful indicator as to how many designers are potentially working on a design submission. While you can’t actually see who is watching, posting a public announcement in the messages section of your contest will go out to watchers, as well as all participants in your contest.
