Photo Contest Facebook App is a very sophisticated application for organising photography contests or contests with graphic works. I originally created the application for my own needs. As a photographer with considerable experience in organising contests, I knew exactly how such a contest should work and what tools the administrator needs to prevent vote frauds. In this respect, contests are brought to perfection. Only one vote can be made for a single photo and voting after the end of the competition is impossible. Voting does not take place via the Like button as is often the case elsewhere. An application with this feature risks removal by Facebook’s developers. I organised several contests before offering the contest here at Codecanyon.net and things went perfectly well.
