WD WEB Company recently released PhotoScramble, innovative fundraising photo contest software, to the public (
). The software allows businesses, organizations & individuals to craft their own photo contests with 4 levels of service ranging from free to paid premium levels. At all levels, hosts are able to define their own contest guidelines, prizes, and generate traffic & buzz around their brand or cause. Photographers or “contestants” can enter to win prizes or build buzz around their work.
At the premium level, hosts have the option of charging an entry and/or voting fee which can go toward non-profit fundraising goals, 50/50 prize raffles or other organizational needs. At the top paid level, hosts have the option of selling ad space on their individual contest pages to sponsors via cpc or cpm methods. Tools to aid in spreading contests include social sharing options, contest badges and a contest widget.
PhotoScramble is the brainchild of WD WEB Company co-founder & CEO Michael Connors. The software is expected to generate significant buzz in the non-profit, media and small business sector. It also excellent potential in the education sector as a fundraising vehicle as well as promotional tool for online publications and radio stations. Future plans include a white label level of service as well as digital print lab integration so that photographers can offer and site visitors can purchase photos and photo products. The main child of WD WEB to this point has been MorePhotos(
), an online shopping cart/proofing system for pro photographers.
