Last updated: March 31, 2021
When you are ready to wrap up your photo contest, you will need to pick a winner. There are a few different ways you can pick winners for your photo contests with Gleam:
Randomly Picking Winners
If you would like to pick a winner for your photo contest at random all you need to do is go to the Winners tab of your campaign and click Draw Winners.
If the winner you drew doesn't meet your photo contest's eligibility requirements you can easily re-pick the winner by clicking Winner in the Status column and selecting Re-pick win.
Manually Picking Winners
If you are judging your photo contest based on merit or skill, you will likely want to manually pick the best submission as your winner.
All you need to do is find your winning submission in the Actions tab of your campaign and select Make Winner in the Status column.
Picking Winners From a Popular Vote
You can also pick winners for your photo contests by letting your audience vote for their favourite submissions and choosing the photo with the most votes as your winner.
Then, you'll manually pick the winner from the Actions tab.
In order to do this you will need to display your submissions in a Gallery and allow users to vote on them. You can learn everything you need to know about running photo voting contests right here.
Once your photo voting contests has closed, sort your Gallery by Most Popular to find the submission with the most votes, match the submission in the Actions tab of your campaign and select Make Winner in the Status column.
