Awards Candy


What is Awards Candy?

Can I upload non award-winning work to my Awards Candy portfolio?

Yes you may but only work that has been recognized by an established creative award show will carry a blue ribbon. Every award-winning piece of work upload to your Awards Candy portfolio is vetted against various award show databases to ensure its authenticity. To upload non awarded work please select the “Portfolio” option from the Awards Show menu. If a particular Portfolio piece of work is later awarded then update the details and we’ll continue the vetting process.

How long does it take to verify my work?

A few days at most.

What is beta?

Beta or beta testing is the second phase of software testing in which a sampling of the intended audience tries the product out. (That would be you!)

Technical issues?

Please email and we will assist you as soon as possible. Below are a few common problems and the solutions.

• The embed media function is not working.

The embed media function only works with embedded code. This is not the same as your videos URL link. To get your videos embedded code on YouTube or Vimeo, please search for the “Share” button and select the “Embed” option. Copy and paste the embed code into the Embed Media text box and click “Embed”
