Expanding BetterBNC Media Contests to Freelancers

BetterBNC is making it easy for media contests to invite freelancers to participate using the platform’s Open Call feature.  Contest administrators can choose to make their contest Open Call and freelancers and contestants entering contests on their own behalf, rather than through a media organization, create their own account with BetterBNC then enter the Open Call contests for which they’re eligible.

Freelance writers, photographers and creatives say Open Call is opening new recognition opportunities for them.

“I haven’t entered many journalism contests in the past because you have to work for a newspaper or magazine to qualify for many of them,” said Seattle-based freelance magazine writer David Hanson who published a book, Breaking through Concrete, documenting a dozen urban farms.  “Having one place where I can have an account and see contests my work qualifies for is really great.  Putting my work in front of new audiences across the country is a great way to market myself as a writer and identify organization’s I’d like to work with in the future.”

BetterBNC also makes it easier than ever before to enter contests by providing a scrapbooking feature.  Contestants can save work they want to enter into contests in a scrapbook account then simply upload it directly into an entry when the time is right.

BetterBNC Provides Customized Contest Homepages and URLs

logo-300Customers asked for it and BetterBNC has delivered.  BetterBNC now offers customized contest homepages.  Contests can choose to  have their own unique URL so they can link directly to the branded contest homepage.

This new BetterBNC feature includes the ability to use a simple web editor to select a color palette and theme.  It allows for the easy upload of an organization’s logos, graphics and artwork as well as a collection of stock images available for use.

BetterBNC is holding a webinar next month to showcase the new customized homepage features.  Email us if you’d like to receive an invitation to the complimentary demo in October.
