Contest platforms are not the same. Some, like BetterBNC, are easy and intuitive while others have a huge learning curve. Some require lots of costly customization to meet your contest needs while others, like BetterBNC, have a base platform that meets most needs of a specific industry – in our case, journalism, creative and public relations contests. Some platforms allow contestants to upload extremely large files while others, including BetterBNC, set a limit.
Got your attention, right? Why would BetterBNC limit the file size of PDFs that can be entered?
If you’ve seen the platform, you have likely noticed BetterBNC’s 20mb file size limit for entries. The reason we don’t permit larger files to be uploaded is simply because it takes longer to download which creates a more cumbersome process for your judges, particularly if they have standard DSL. Customers are encouraged to limit file sizes to 5mb or less or opt to use an online e-publishing platform such as Issuu, VuDu or RealView. When contestants make entries using the e-publishing option, they enter the URL web address of the document rather than uploading. Judges are able to easily view and evaluate the entry.
This is one of the main reasons judges consistently praise the BetterBNC platform for its ease of use. It saves them time and energy.
