For awards that rely on public voting on entries, Award Force has a “people’s choice” voting option, also known as "audience choice". Add a new dimension to your awards, opening up judging to give everybody the vote.
You control the rules
Configuration options are virtually limitless. Limit the number of votes per person. Control vote-rigging by requiring voters to register with a valid email address. Or leave it open for all, for maximum voter participation.
Encourage entrants to engage their social networks to vote for their entry, in turn generating visibility, recognition and scale for your awards. Everybody wins.
Combine VIP judging and voting
Get creative and combine public voting with VIP judging. e.g. have the public vote for the shortlist in a category then VIPs score to select finalists and the winner. Or the other way around. Or have the audience and VIPs choose their own winners for the same category!
