Do contest holders set gold silver and bronze winners or is it automatic

That is a blind contest, once it is completely finalized you will see your medal. for silver or bronze...... Silver and bronze medals are auto picked based on the ratings in a contest. This is why some contests have several silver or several bronze, ties are awarded medals also. So any contest with rating will have medals awarded, if blind you will not see them until the contest is completely finalized
by completely finalized do you mean after they have paid their winning designer? They have selected a winner already.

SO if ch has rated 3 designs 96 and 2 designs 93 you end up with 3 silver and 2 bronze winners in that contest. The ch rates but the site is programmed to award the silver and bronze, that is what I meant by auto pick

So look at it this way if the entries are rated in a contest there will always be silver and bronze, if no ratings then no medals other than gold. YES we strongly encourage and talk the contestholders about rating and feedback : )

Let set this example:
Infiniti Beverage Group (IBG)
All other designs are rated, still there is only gold medal - is it because rating points are not over 90, 96, 98 or there is another reason?
Also, we have a thread here on forum about this, and I thought I understood everything, and as well haven't noticed someone mentioned that.
I'm tired now, hardly can read... Sharie, if you catch a time, please advise.
Good night or good day to all!

Thank you and we will get this taken care of as soon as they search through the programming strings to find the bug or hiccup!

Since the contest was BLIND (but not hidden), there is (1) gold winner picked by CH, and if CH didn't award silver and bronze, DC auto picks those based on rated entries. So, there should be (4) silvers awarded and (2) bronzes awarded once the contest has been totally finalized (meaning the CH has approved and finalized all source files provided from the winning designer).
So basically any BLIND contest that has ratings and has been awarded a gold by the CH, should ALSO have silver(s) and bronze(s) awarded to next highest rated designs. Either chosen by CH or if the CH doesn't choose, then they are auto-picked by DC.
Is this correct? Is this something new?

If gold, silver(s) and bronze(s) are awarded, the award will show up at the top of winning designers profile page, but the ACTUAL design will not show up on the designers's profile page - is this correct?

If gold, silver(s) and bronze(s) are awarded, the award will show up at the top of each designer's profile pages, but the ACTUAL design will not show up on the designers's profile page - is this correct?

You will not see these in contests marked hidden.... they are added to your total but you will not see these entries gold,silver,bronze for contests that are marked hidden
With blind contests you will see the medals once the contest has completely finalized meaning payment sent to winning designer.

Should there not be bronze(s) awarded since it was a blind (but not hidden) contest? The next highest ratings were tied at 90 points by 4 designs #165, #90, #83 and #78. Why would those entries not receive bronzes?

I think there is another bug. Here is the recent contest with gold only:
