Open Call Contestant

Some contests are "Open Call", meaning any journalist is eligible to enter including freelancers and certain trades people. If the contest you want to enter has sent you an "Open Call for Entries", this is the account for you!

Your Open Call account is special!

Open Call is different from how you may have made entries in the past. Now, you establish your account with BetterBNC, then are eligible to enter multiple contests using a simple request/permission system.

Any journalist can establish an Open Call account on BetterBNC!

If you are not sure, please contact your Contest Organization or BetterBNC through our contact page.
