Mobilizing Votes for the Photo Contest

Mobilizing Votes for the Photo Contest

A big thank you to all the organizations that submitted photos to GlobalGiving’s Photo Contest! Our outside judge, Bud Force  is currently choosing the finalists; we can’t wait to see the results!

Katie Meyler from More than Me Foundation  (the winner of GlobalGiving’s past two Photo Contests) hosted an insightful and energetic webinar on July 18, 2012.  Katie shared tips on getting supporters excited to vote for your photos.

If you weren’t able to attend the webinar you can find some of Katie’s tips below.

Mobilizing Voters

  • Think outside of the box! Instead of solely using e-mail to contact prior supporters build your network by getting potential supporters involved in person.  Go to a coffee shop with your lap top and ask people to vote right then and there.
  • Identify enthusiastic staff members or volunteers who feel comfortable talking to potential supporters and getting them to vote for your project’s photo. This is a great volunteer opportunity!
  • Use social media.  Even though voting will not take place on Facebook, you can still send your Facebook connections the link to the Photo Contest on the GlobalGiving site.

Finalists will be notified by July 30, 2012! Get excited to mobilize!
