I would like to separate the photo contest categories into individual pages or as individual galleries, but have them all part of one contest. Can I do this or something similar, and how?
To clarify, I would like participants to see the photos in a single category, select their favorite, then move on to the next category. Each category contains 2-5 entries, and there are six categories.
we already planed a new feature which will make this very easy, but for now you need a little workaround.
You need to create a photo contest per page. Then you can link each contest / page via the description (first step) or a custom thank you page (advanced step). We also have a cloning feature which will help speed up this workaround.
Alternatively you could also create a survey. This could work if you only have voters and no photo submitters. Our survey allows you to add a »Submit rating« step. Here you can choose as rating object »Pictures, music or files«. Voters can then step through all categories. Voters can also open the images in a lightbox for a fullscreen view.
I would suggest that you try this out, since these two PollUnit types differ significantly in appearance.
Will do. Thanks Markus
