How to create a competition

This article describes the procedure for creating a new photo contest. In addition to creating the contest and its container page, events must be created on the calendar. These events are usually:

  • Dates the contest is open to members for entry
  • Dates the contest is open to the Jury if it is a Division competition
  • Dates the contest is open to members for Popular Vote
  • Date and location of the meeting where the results are revealed, and images discussed.

This procedure only steps through the process of creating a contest. This procedure does not explain how to create these events.
