Hi – 

I wanted to drop a quick note to let you know that we’re now accepting registrations for animal shelters and other humane groups that want to run a photo contest fundraiser this summer with  GoGo Photo Contest.

What is GoGo Photo Contest?

GoGo Photo Contest is an online platform that allows your organization to run a donate-to-vote photo contest fundraiser. Your constituents submit pictures of their pets to a customized site created just for your organization and make a donation to get votes for their pet. The entrants in your contest will share their entries via email and social media with their friends and family. Their friends receive an invite via email, Facebook, and Twitter to donate $1 per vote on their friend's entry. At the end of your voting period, the entries with the most votes will win the contest and whatever prizes you determine ahead of time.

Can I view an example of a GoGo Photo Contest Fundraiser?

Why run a photo contest fundraiser with GoGo Photo Contest?

Raise Funds in a Fun and Creative Way - Unlike traditional fundraising campaigns that rely heavily on emotional appeals and direct mail, GoGo Photo Contest provides a way for your constituents to give to your organization, have fun in the process and win a great prize when the contest is over.

Benefit From Network Effects - With GoGo Photo Contest, you will not only raise funds from your existing constituents, but from their friends and family as well. Since you're running a contest, your entrants are motivated and encouraged to share their entries through Facebook, Twitter and other social networks.

Grow Your Constituency - Organizations that have previously run contests find that many of their entries are from people that are not part of their existing donor lists. Participants often learn about the contest through social media or other promotional strategies that you employ to promote your photo contest. At the end of your contest, you'll receive full contact information for each person that participated in the contest.

What do other animal shelters have to say about GoGo Photo Contest?

“We were very happy with GoGo Photo Contest, particularly with the customer service and quality of the contest design. The ability for mobile users to vote and share really increased our contest exposure. We raised over $12,000, approximately double the amount from the previous year for the same contest. We will use GoGo again!”  -Daphne Parker, Belly Rubs Basset Rescue

“The team at GoGo Photo Contest created a banner just for our contest and also helped us with our rules and settings to maximize our donations. The contest was so much fun!”  -Carrie Bermel, Erin's Midwest Animal ResQ

“The team at GoGo Photo Contest were very helpful in setting up our photo contest. We were very excited to reach our goal!”  -Amy Parish, Chap’s Chow Rescue

"The contest we ran through GoGo Photo Contest was a fun way to engage our constituents. We will definitely be using your website again."  - Jodi Polanski, Lost Our Home Pet Foundation

“GoGo Photo Contest helped us in raising over $5,000 in our playing card contest. We highly recommend their software!”  -Kori Baade, Sioux Falls Area Humane Society

How can I get started?

If you're interested in running a photo contest fundraiser, complete the sign-up form at You will want to think about what kind of prize package you will be offering (awarding a spot in a calendar to the top 12 winners is a great prize, as well as offering prize packages donated by local businesses or even a portrait session donated by a local photographer) and your contest rules (your contest begin/end dates, if you want an entry fee and if so how much, and what type of photos you will allow in your photo contest).
