Where will my competition or event banner be displayed?
Competition and event banners will be displayed on the homepage, in the sidebar of all subsequent competition or event pages, on the competitions or events landing pages, in dedicated dividers between articles and listings, as well as in the Daily newsletter. The Featured option also gets your banner up in Bustler's popular Weekly newsletter from the time of posting until the listing expires.

Can I purchase more advertising (additional days) if my original banner campaign has ended?
Yes, you can extend your campaign at any time after an original purchase is made.

Can I change the days of my banner campaign once it is confirmed?
