Unlimited, Custom Contests

WP CONTEST PRO allows you to create and run unlimited contests. Contest settings allow you to :

  • Turn contests on or off
  • Restrict submissions to users registered as contestants, or open to any logged in user. When you install the plugin a “Contestant” user role is created automatically.
  • Set an entry fee, or make your contest free to enter
  • Set a max number of entries for your contest
  • Create and customize submission fields (you can create as many as you like!)
  • Create unlimited entry categories
  • Set a max upload limit

Charge for entries

With WP CONTEST PRO you can monetize your contests and charge contestants per submission. When creating your contest simply set the cost per entry.

 

In the plugin’s settings you will enter your PayPal key to connect your account. And if you’re not ready to go live, simply create a PayPal Sandbox app and enter those in the test key fields in settings.

 

Contestants will automatically be directed to PayPal after they enter their submission(s), and be charged for each of their entries.

Entry Elimination & Voting Contest Plugin

In addition to a traditional voting round, with WP CONTEST PRO you can also include a preliminary elimination round.

 

In an elimination round judges can simply vote “Yes”, “Maybe” or “No”, and you are able to set the minimum number of “No” votes required to eliminate a submission.

 

If an entry is eliminated it will not be included in the voting round that comes next.

 

As the admin, you can customize voting criteria. Create unlimited criteria (e.g. for a photography contest these might be “Lighting” and “Composition”) and your judges will vote on a 1-10 scale for each criteria.

 

For example, if you have 10 criteria the max score an entry can receive is 100.

 

As the admin you can track which judges have voted and what their votes are.

Shortcodes

Add contest elements to your site through shortcodes! Use contest IDs (contest_id="") to run multiple contests on your site. You can read more about shortcodes in the plugin’s documentation.

Entry Form
[wpc_entry_form contest_id=""]

 

Add entry forms to any page. If a user is not logged in they will be prompted to login or register before submitting an entry.

Elimination Round (Judges Only)
[wpc_elimination_round contest_id=""]

 

If you’re running an elimination round for your contest, this shortcode will display entries to judges and allow them to vote “Yes”, “Maybe” and “No” for each entry.

Voting Round (Judges Only)
[wpc_voting_round contest_id=""]

 

Including this shortcode on a page will display entries to judges and allow them to set a 1-10 score for each of your criteria. They can also edit their vote and record a reason for the change.

Judge Dashboard (Judges Only)
[wpc_judge_dash contest_id=""]

 

The judge’s dashboard displays all entries to a contest, their status (e.g. did they pass the elimination round, etc) and their score.

Entry Search
[wpc_search_by_entry]

 

This allows anyone to search entries by contest, contestant name and/or category. You can keep this page behind a login if you don’t want any site visitor to be able to search for entries.

Contestant Dashboard Contestants Only
[wpc_user_dash contest_id=""]

 

This shortcode displays the logged in contestant’s entries, their status and score. Users can also download a PDF of each entry in case they must also submit a physical version of the entry (e.g. they must include prints for a photography contest) and need a label.

Flexible Entry Types

With WP CONTEST PRO you don’t have to limit contestants to only .jpg entries! As the admin you can allow contestants to submit any file type or link to their entry. This is great for web design or film contests.

Admin Features

Contestants and judges don’t get to have all the fun! As the admin you can create contests, view submissions and see voting in real time.

 

But most importantly we’ve made setting up contests super simple. In just a couple steps you can configure your contest and add shortcodes to your pages.
