Private Messaging in Contests
It’s ideal for contest holders to communicate concerns, questions and further instructions to contest participants they are considering to award. This can be accomplished through private messaging, which is a contest feature to get you the best possible entry.
On the contest page, find the entry whose designer you wish to talk to and click their username on it. You will be redirected to the designer's entry page.
On the lower part of the page is the Private Message Board. You can write your message on the text box. Don't worry. Only you and contest participant will be able to see your conversation. They will be notified when a message is sent to them.
If you wish to contact the contest participant immediately, you can start a chat with them instead. To start a chat conversation, hover your mouse over their entry and click Chat.
You can also start the chat conversation when you are viewing the entry in full. Just click Chat on the upper right side of the full view window.
Note: Do not ask for nor provide private contact information as it is against Freelancer.com's Terms and Conditions.
