WomStreet has just made their online contest hosting platform open to anyone. An online contest enables any person or organization to simultaneously crowd-source content, engage with their community, and promote their cause. The host puts up a prize, users submit their entry, and their community votes on their favorite. WomStreet contests are very interactive and tend to go viral because participants are incentivized to share to social media channels in exchange for extra votes â€“ giving them more decision making power.
The new contest creation feature allows anyone to create and monitor a contest using an intuitive contest management dashboard. Every contest can then be accessed through a unique hyperlink. In order to be featured on the homepage, users have to submit a request that must be approved by the WomStreet staff.
