How do I let my entrants/judges download documents?

When configuring your entry form it may be necessary for an entrant to download a document or file in order to successfully apply. To make a document available for download there are several services you can use and link from your program. These services include Google documents, DropboxScribd, or even your own website among others.  

Important: make sure the hosted document is publicly accessible otherwise your users will not be able to see it. You can easily check if a document is publicly accessible by attempting to open the link in an incognito or private browser window.

You can quickly link an externally-hosted document in any content block by using the create link button shown below.
