New Photo Contest Goes Live

A new photo contest, entitled "A Single Drop of Water," has just launched using the new Votridea Contest Platform that I helped create. The contest is sponsored by Statement Arts, a New York charity that promotes education in the arts for disadvantaged youths. Check out the contest now. They're offering real cash prizes!

Submissions and community voting for this contest closed right before Christmas, and the judging is going on right now. Despite the fact that it cost money to enter the contest, there were 175 photo submissions.

During the contest, more than 2100 people logged into the platform using Facebook, allowing them to vote and comment on entries. Note that all entries could be freely viewed — logging in was only required if people want to participate by voting or commenting. More than 5600 votes were cast, augmented by almost 1000 comments. Truly a great social media event for Statement Arts.
