Uploading Content to your UGC Contest

If you are hosting a voting-only UGC contest or received a submission outside of the campaign’s entry methods, you can add the submission to the gallery from the campaign’s dashboard. Here’s how:

While managing the offer, click the Submissions tab. Then, simply click the “+ Add Submission” button:

Submissions tab - add submission

This will open a panel where you can add the content:

Add submission panel

You can then add a photo or video URL, a display name, and even a caption. Files up to 2MB can be uploaded. Videos must be entered using only a YouTube, Instagram, or Vimeo video URL.

You even have the option of adding a hashtag/post entry from Twitter or Instagram by clicking the “External Photo” radio button and entering the post URL:

Manually add social media submission

Once the content is added, click the “Save” button.

*If Manual-approval is enabled, you will still need to approve the submission.
