Good idea, but . . .
By ,

Don't think I like the idea of a program automatically sending out emails or messages to others just because I did something (such as joining a contest, like this app does). Sounds a lot like spamming to me.

This plugin is not free. It guides you through all the steps to create a contest then asks you to pick a paid plan starting at 29$.

While paid-for plugins can be great, hiding the fact that users have to pay to make any kind of use of this one is simply a way of fooling people.

Has potential
By , for WP 3.4.2

While this has potential, in its current version there are too many issues. The implementation within WordPress required two tech support calls and nearly 90 minutes of my time. Not as easy as represented.

The user interface for the contest is quite poor. The photos layout 3 across on a page, with far too much white space on the right. The photos are small. They are displayed 6 at a time and then the user has to hit a "Load More" button to see more photos. We currently have 48 photos and it is already unwieldy.

You can see an enlarged photo by clicking on it, but only one at a time. There is no slideshow feature, so if you want to look at all of the photos, you have to click on them one at a time, go back to the full list, and click again. VERY poor user interface.

I have just learned that there is no way to export the photos entered, other than saving them one by one. This in itself is a deal breaker.

Great idea, poorly executed.
