Gallery Options

The Gallery element in your Photo/Video Contest displays the content submitted to your campaign, but this element also has features and options that you may want to change:

In the Settings tab, you can access gallery options under the Gallery header.

UGC settings tab

UGC settings - gallery area

Under Gallery Visibility, you can adjust the gallery page’s dates, and set it as the default landing page.

Upload Visibility

In the Upload Visibility panel, you can enable Manual Approval, prevent submissions from being visible via share before they’re approved, or hide submissions until the max vote count is reached.

Layout Options

The Layout Options section allows you to choose how the gallery is sorted, how many entries display per page, and how the submitter’s name will display (if at all).

Settings - layout options

*Names must be entered into the “First and Last Name” field in the Form to display in the gallery. Hashtag submissions from Twitter and Facebook will display the entrant’s username. Instagram no longer allow access to usernames, so those will not be pulled into your campaign or be displayed on the submission.

Show Vote Counts

If voting is enabled, you can choose to show or hide the total votes on the public gallery under Show Vote Counts.

Twitter Share Message

In the Design section on the Gallery page, click on the Gallery Element to select it, or the “Gallery” section on the left.

Twitter gallery share message

Here you can customize the tweet you want to be shared from the submission on the gallery page. The code you see in the field should not be deleted as that will display the unique URL leading back to that entrant’s submission on your gallery page. Usually, something like “I just entered this awesome photo contest! Click here to vote for me: {{media.gallery_url}}!” works best.
