Entrants can create a “hashtag” theme involving something related to your cause or non-profit. For instance, if your non-profit involves animals you could do a “#petfunnyfaces” theme and entrants can upload photos of pets.
Other than a “best fit” for a hashtag you can also have entrants come up with a tasteful hashtag and upload a photo. The photo itself can be of an artistic representation of a hashtag, such as a painting or caligraphy, or a photo with a hashtag as an entry title (as long it’s tasteful).
You might have to look for quite a bit more sponsorship for the first idea but the second has different options. Since the first contest idea doesn’t produce anything that can be a prize outside vendors will have to pitch in. With the second idea, the winning photo can be printed as a poster, t-shirt, or calendar and used as a prize.
Things to consider
- Be sure to communicate that entries should be tasteful for the photo, photo title, and photo description.
- If you choose to use the winning entry as a prize be sure you have a vendor lined up to create the intended prize.
- Be sure to share the URL for the fundraiser on social media! Likes, retweets, and shares help spread the word!
