We use Visual Pursuits for our competitions.
Your images will be uploaded to this website, our judges are able to view, score and critique the images from this website. Results, including scores and critiques, are also available through the website.
We have been using this for the past year and it has worked great, especially with the pandemic.
You will need to request a free account by emailing email@example.com
The video that explains this process is here, https://edcenter.softwarepursuits.com/visualpursuits/ViewVideo.aspx?V=7c71f1f1-6f47-452e-bf6b-159dc8fd4439
We suggest doing this ASAP. Although this competition management system works great, it does have a learning curve to it.
Vicki Douglas can assist with questions you have about Visual Pursuits or any other questions. Her contact information is firstname.lastname@example.org.
This competition was closed on the 11th. The 18th was the date WRPS had to get them to them to Erie Shores.
There was some built in cushion time in case we had to choose 25 photos.
Erie Shores changed final submission date was changed to March 16. I apologize for the delay in notification. I was on vacation when then email was sent. I saw it on Sunday night and my first reaction was to send a request for an extension. On Monday, while I was flying back from my trip, I received notification they would not offer an extension.
I didn't get home until 8:00 PM Monday night. We had 25 photos so I submitted those.
I apologize for the miscommunication on my end, unfortunately Erie Shores changed this without much notice.
In addition, there will not be a viewing this year because of the Coronavirus.
