Ich nutze das Plugin seit 4 Jahren für einen Wettbewerb und schätze die vielfältigen Einstellungen. Das Plugin wird regelmäßig erweitert und bei Fragen hat man neben dem Supportforum auch einen sehr schnellen und persönlich Support vom Entwickler. Das gefällt mir sehr gut und gibt mir Sicherheit in meinen Wettbewerbsprojekten. Klare Empfehlung von mir.

ITIl Plugin “Contest Gallery” soddisfa tutti i requisiti necessari ad un plugin di questo genere, il tutto unito ad una veste grafica bella e versatile. Utilizzando questo plugin per il Concorso Fotografico promosso da un mio cliente (una Amministrazione Comunale) ho ricevuto numerosi apprezzamenti (anche dallo stesso Sindaco). L’intero sistema di gestione del backend, pur perfettibile, è tra i migliori e più moderni che ho potuto riscontrare e soprattutto molto versatile. L’assistenza clienti è rapida ed efficiente. Nel complesso, 5 stelle sono più che meritate.ENThe “Contest Gallery” Plugin satisfies all the requirements necessary for a plugin of this kind, all combined with a beautiful and versatile graphic design. Using this plugin for the Photo Competition promoted by one of my clients (a Municipal Administration) I received numerous compliments (even from the Mayor of the Municipality). The entire backend management system, although perfectible, is among the best and most modern that I have come across and above all very versatile. Customer support is fast and efficient. Overall, 5 stars are more than deserved.

We are experiencing problems with the plugin on our website. We have paid for the pro version which is supposed to entitle you to technical support.Well, since it is giving us problems with both browsers, Wasiliy Strecker, one of its developers, tells us that the problem is a code error by the Google and Microsoft developers.Yes, the solution that Wasily gives us to the problem is that we change browsers because he has no problems with his code. The problem with the code is with Google and Microsoft.I’m really still trying to assimilate this person’s response.Remember friends, if you experience problems with the plugin, the problem is with the Chrome and Edge developers who don’t know what they are doing.

This plugin works great. And the customer support is excellent. This photo contest plugin is more versatile than others for enabling you to run the contest how you want — whether photo submitters get to see all the others? who gets to vote ? what photos are visible to the public?

Thank you so much to the developer for your quick and continuous efforts to enhance the functionality of the plugin. The best plugin with all the features required for a photo contest or photo exhibition. My client’s requirement was very well taken care of by the plugin and the suggestions for improvements were made available within 48 hours. Thank you once again.
May 21, 2023
I used this many years ago for a small Photo club. Now I am using it for a 100+ club and it is just great. Support is quick, sometimes like prayer, the answer is no but it doesn’t usually matter. Couldn’t recommend this more
