Zuger SEEfest Photo Contest

OVERVIEW

Zuger SEEfest is a celebration of the beauty of Zug and its people.  A fun event that brings us all together to enjoy the scenery, the shows, the music and most important, each other's company.  This is the exact theme for this photo contest: capturing moments of fun, togetherness, celebration. The Zuger SEEFest Photo Contest and the rewards are offered by the Zug Sports Organization, the ones who organized the Zuger SEEfest, as well as the Zug Sports Festival coming up on July 27th, 2019. 

What to submit?  Anything that speaks to you.  Anything memorable for you and your loved ones.  Anything that made you feel proud, happy, fortunate, excited, impressed.  Focus on the feeling, the moment, the energy.  There is beauty in everything.

WHAT'S NEW

I got feedback on the first super successful photo contest.  So I am adding this new feature:
The sponsor of the contest will judge and decide on the best photo and offer an extra reward.  This is in addition to the winners with the most votes.  Therefore two ways to win, through the votes and through the sponsor.


REWARDS

Winner no 1. Most votes.

Bluetooth LED Glasses - Display Messages, Animation, Drawings! It is the biggest trend these days all over Facebook and Instagram. This will be sent to you via Amazon.

Winner no 2. Second highest number of votes.

Bluetooth LED Hat - Display Messages, Animation, Beats! The black hat that can complement your style and spark new connections. This will be sent to you via Gearbest. You can see a review of this on YouTube.

Winner no 3. Third highest number of votes.

A full bag with Zug Sports merchandise: bag, hoodie, t-shirt, and towel. You cannot buy elsewhere and there are designated for the very few in the canton. This will be handed over to you in Zug.


Bonus Reward.

The sponsor of the contest will choose one photo that they like, regardless of votes, and they will offer an extra bag of Zug Sports goodies: bag hoodie, t-shirt, and towel. So even if you do not think you can get the most votes, it is still worth participating, because there is a chance there is something in your photo that the organizers will like.

For the first 3 rewards, I will apply the same principle as with previous ones. The one with the most votes chooses first any of the 3 rewards, the one with the second number of votes chooses next and so on. Now matter what you win, one is for sure. You will be the center of attention where you wear any of these.


MORE Q&A

How do I upload my photo?
On Desktop it is obvious: it says "UPLOAD PHOTO". On Mobile, you have to click on the MENU Tab with the 3 little parallel lines (Under the Zug Photo Contest title). From there it is easier than ordering a Starbucks coffee.

How do you know that the photo is from the Zuger SEEfest?
I do not.  You do.  And that is all that matters.  Since I started zug.rocks, trust has been the basis of our interaction.  And this will not change now, not ever.

Does it have to be a brand new photo never published before?
No.  Just pick one from your IG, FB, PI or your childhood album.

How many votes can I give?
One per photo per 24 hours.  But you can vote for several photos and you can come 24 hours later and vote again.  Because there are always new photos to appreciate.

Can it be a Zug photo I’ve taken with my phone?
As long as it is of good quality.  Why?  Because this way there are more chances to get votes from other than your own friends.

What info about myself do I have to provide as a participant and as a voter?
The bare minimum.  For participants, your photo and an email so I can contact you at some point.  Plus your facebook and/or Instagram, so I can give you credit in social media.  For voters, nothing.  I am not collecting emails, phone numbers or other PII.  No mass communications.  Not into sending you or selling you stuff.  You come to my stuff when you find something interesting.  Already thousands of you do that, without me having to be annoying.

Why are you asking for my facebook and Instagram?
So I can tag you when I share your photos after the end of the contest.  Unless you do not want, so do not provide them.  It is all about you.

How will you choose the winners?
You will choose the winners.  By the number of unique votes per photo.  And I will have to live with that.  And I like it this way.

I have submitted two photos.  Can I win two rewards?
No. However submitting 2 photos gives you more chances to win, because the voters and the judges might like more one of your photos.  Your best photo (with the most likes) will count.  Let's make more people happy.

What will you do with my photo?
All or some of the below.  If you have an issue with any of the below, pls flag it:
- include it in videos that will summarize the contest
- share it in social media, always giving you credit
- potentially include it in an e-book or actual book with Zug or Zuger SEEfest photos.

What if my question was not answered?
Email me or message me or catch me downtown (downtown used loosely for Zug).  I will do my best to answer it.  I respond to all comments anywhere.  If your question is too difficult for me, then I will forward to God, who I have on Twitter.  After that, you are on your own.
