First of all: the general rules to participate in the Monthly Contests are written in the Contest Rules, the purpose of this Tutorial is only to show you the right procedure to do that.
There are two ways you can participate in a Picture Contest:
- Submit a picture
- Vote a picture
Submit a picture
- To participate submit a picture, you will need a valid account here, on the GoMe website. The Registration procedure is easy and secure. Simply click here.
- Once you've registered (and logged in) you will be able to submit your picture to the Contest.
- To submit a picture click on the 'Create Content' link in the right-hand menu and select Image from the list of contents. Or simply click here.
- If there is no 'Image' link to select there may either be a problem with our system (in this case try to contact a Messenger) or the current Contest is over and we are in the voting phase (please check our calendar to know the deadlines for the Contests).
- In the Create Image page fill in the form to submit your picture:
- Title: this field is for the title of your image
- Picture Contest: in this field you must select the Category you wish to submit your image to. Please check the announcements (on our front page or in the GoMe Newspaper) to know the Category of the current Contest.
- Image: in this field you have to select the image you want to submit for the Contest. Once you did, click on the upload button to upload it. Remember that your image must respect the theme of the current Contest, the Contest Rules and the image requirements (Maximum Filesize: 2 MB,Allowed Extensions: jpg jpeg, png. Images must be larger than 640x480 pixels)
When you are finished click on the Save button to submit your Image for the Contest
Vote a picture
To vote a picture enter the Current Category by the right-hand menu and select the image you want to vote for. Once you are on the Image page you will see ten stars just under the picture. Select one of the ten marks to vote for the image.
If you want to undo your vote you can click on the Undo sign (the first before he stars). Beware: if you are not logged-in on our website you will be able to undo your vote only during same visit to the website; the next time you won't see your vote.
When the Contest is Complete
When the contest is closed, and the winner revealed to the public, on all the images of the Contest will be enabled comments. So everyone will be able to make comments on the images.
