A PollUnit survey is a questionnaire in several steps. A step of the type »Submit rating« allows to upload images. So you can create multiple steps or sets of images in one survey and have them rated.More about surveys
Here the spotlight is on the photos. With a photo competition you create a voting gallery with a large number of pictures.More about contests
