You can use Polygon to prepare tasks (i.e. statement, inputs, outputs, and so on...), but you cannot upload the resulting "task package" to Codeforces, unless you're a Codeforces administrator.

If you want to set up a Codeforces Round, you must first ask to a Codeforces admin.

Another option is the gym, where you can create a contest if you're at least yellow-rated (rating  ≥ 1900).

Another option (if you just want to have a contest, and don't require it to be on Codeforces) is to install the CMS software on a server, and then import tasks "packaged" using Polygon.

UPD: It seems that I've missed an important Codeforces update, it's now possible to create a mashup contest (where you can add tasks either from the Codeforces archive or from scratch, using Polygon). It seems exactly what you want to do, except that the resulting contest is not public (you have to create a group of people and then add the contest to the group).

Read here to know how to include Polygon tasks to a mashup contest.

    wil93, do you know if there is a way to let participants practice mashup contest problems that were added via Polygon after the contest is over?

    I've created a mashup contest with original problems I designed in polygon, then offered the contest to my group. Now that the contest is finished they would like to practice the problems they didn't solve. How can I give them access to those problems?

    I thought that it would be like a regular contest, where the problem go into the gym afterwards. But I cannot see them there, and I also cannot add problems to the gym myself.

    (I have tried to use the option "-> to practice", but that does not provide the option to practice, but rather it moves a participant's attempt from the scoreboard, erasing their times.)

      Can't they just submit code to the contest problems (inside the contest — if the time is up, it will be "out of competition" submissions)?
