Woobox now makes it incredibly simple to run a Photo Contest that integrates with Instagram posts.  You choose a specific hashtag, and photos posted with that hashtag will automatically be entered into your Photo Contest!

LUNA’s Cheer Card Contest

March 6, 2013

For LUNA’s Cheer Card Contest, fans can submit their best “cheers” to be voted on by other fans. The contest application automatically converts a user’s text entry into a cheer card image using the background and font LUNA supplied.  The cheer card then goes into a voting gallery where fans can vote for their favorites.  The winning cheer card slogans will be printed onto actual cheer cards to line one mile of the Nike Women Half Marathon in Washington, D.C. and cheer on the runners.

Vine Video Contests with Hashtag Entry now at Woobox

February 15, 2013

We think Vine is perfect for Video Contests so we’ve added Vine support for Woobox Video Contests with the ability to enter via hashtag!
We find our customers’ most engaging video contests have loads of short length video entries.  This lets fans and followers check out many entries in a session and encourages more entries.  Twitter’s Vine is perfect for Video Contests for this very reason.
Have you heard of Vine yet?  It’s a new way of recording videos via an iOS device (support for other devices is surely coming soon) and sharing them.  Users have six seconds to record their video – starting and pausing as they choose.  Once ready, it’ll loop and repeat when played.  Vines can easily be shared …
