Gallery, Store, & Events
With omniCONTESTS’ omniGALLERY module, you can showcase winners and entries in an online gallery. No matter what kind of contest you’re running, omniCONTESTS can be your one-stop contest management solution!
Benefits of Having an Online Contest Winners Gallery
- Additional Opportunities – unlock more opportunities with sponsorship, advertising and subscriptions. A winners gallery can be an added value to the association membership and provide industry information, inspiration, ideas and cross-marketing opportunities. The gallery can be another opportunity to generate buzz and connect with prospective members, entrants and industry contacts.
- Contest History – by maintaining a historical knowledge base of your awards program, you can showcase winners for multiple years. As the gallery grows each year, you can compare and track competition and industry trends.
- A Win-Win Situation – the gallery can be an added benefit to you and to the entrant for entering the competition. The online gallery drives traffic to the site and further promotes the entrant company’s products and services. You are marketing your entrants’ products on your site – all entrants, not just winners, can benefit!

- Showcase Entries – you can showcase winners and/or entries with a searchable database. At the end of your online contest, the entries are a rich source of industry information. You can showcase all or select entry information along with supporting materials such as print, audio and video campaigns. Continue to drive interest to your site by displaying the contest results in the gallery.
- Video and Audio Support – print, photography, video, audio, PDFs and documents for the entry can be uploaded and collected in real-time. The contest software allows any type of file entry to be uploaded. Thumbnails are automatically created for images and videos. Our contest software handles the video encoding – when a video is uploaded, the system automatically transforms the video to standard format FLV geared for fast playback on the web. More than 20 video file types are supported (e.g., MOV, WMV, MPG, AVI, etc.).
- Searchable Gallery – filters can search across all omniCONTESTS data. You determine the search parameters. Search by award, category, classification, keyword, company and other entry form questions.
- Customize Gallery Pages – customize the search, results and detail pages with images, links to URLs and file uploads, and change the text to match your organization’s site. omniCONTESTS offers the design flexibility to effectively customize and brand your website! Configure visual site elements such as font, colors and text. The detail page can be customized to display selected information from the entry form, and the results page can be modified.
- Use Existing omniCONTESTS Site for Administration – entrant and entry information is maintained in one place. Conveniently manage your entries in the same site!
Many awards programs hold events to announce their winners. The Event Registration module will allow your organization to:
- Create events

- Set up and collect online payments
The Event Registration module allows your organization to publish and promote your organization’s conferences and galas. With the Event Registration module, your organization will be able to easily communicate with attendees, update calendar listings instantly and manage event speakers.
Whether you’re a big corporation like Costco or a small company running a local awards program with 20 entries, you can benefit from our Event Registration module!
Award ordering is an important part of your awards programs, and we can make sure yours is as efficient as possible! The omniCONTESTS Award Ordering E-Store module allows your organization to operate a full-scale product gallery, including trophies and plaques, on the web. Now that judging is complete and the winners are announced, winners can order duplicate trophies and change the name listed on the trophy to honor individual team members. Recognize the achievement and the hard work of everyone involved, from the client to the producer!
Benefits of Online Award Ordering
Ordering awards for your online contest can:
- Boost non-dues income – Whether the entry is an advertising campaign for a marketing contest or a building for an architectural contest, entries are a group effort with a long list of credits. Each member of the team is vital to the development and completion of the project. Entrants can easily order additional trophies to recognize these individuals. Other contest products can also be available for purchase in the store.
- Improve member loyalty – Winning the contest is a great achievement and honor and can elevate the competition, industry and the entrant’s work. Entrants can easily share this recognition with the client and team members with personalized trophies and certificates. The award also reinforces and validates industry excellence and performance. It is a valuable opportunity to connect with members, entrants, partners and industry leaders!
Features of Our Online Award Ordering
Our award ordering management services include:
- Full-Scale Award Ordering E-Store – The e-store offers award and contest products such as trophies, certificates, plaques and award publications. Products can be awarded in a specific manner, such as a Gold Trophy for only Gold winners or a Certificate for all winners. Or a product can be available to all entrants such as a Winner Publication Book. Configure the product information such as instructions, description, photos and pricing. The store is integrated with omniCONTESTS and was built with the same content management philosophy; you control the style, instructional text and email for the site.
- Easy Ordering and Checkout – Entrants use the same login information to quickly place their order. When the entrants log in, they see all their contest entries and can order for a specific entry. For speedy checkout, their entry information pre-fills the award order form and their contact information pre-fills the checkout forms. Entrants can conveniently customize this information for the order.
- Custom Award Information – The administrator can determine what information appears on the award and which text can be personalized and customized. During the ordering process, entrants can modify the information to be engraved on the trophy or printed on the certificate.
