Over the past few years, I've been contacted by a few organizations asking if CompetitionSuite allowed online submissions. The organizations were typically looking for a way to upload a photo, a piece of art, or a business proposal that could be judged online. I had turned most away, apologizing that CompetitionSuite was really designed for in-person events.
I'm delighted to announce that CompetitionSuite now allows you to accept Online Submissions!
I've tried to make the process as simple and as familiar as possible for organizations that already utilize CompetitionSuite. You can set up an event as you normally would, then you can configure what Submissions you'd like to accept, and when those submissions "close." You can collect video, audio, images, and documents, and you're not restricted to only 1 submission. If you want to receive a video from the press box and a video of the pit, you can! You can read about the setup process on the CompetitionSuite Help web site.
The process for groups is even more straightforward. They can log in to their group, go to Upcoming Events, and (assuming they are registered) they can upload the appropriate files from their computer. If any problems arise while processing the submissions, we'll send them a message letting them know.
Please reach out to me if you have any questions/suggestions for Submissions or anything else in CompetitionSuite.
