Votes will be counted based on email address. Only unique email IDs will be counted towards a unique vote.
Each vote must be confirmed via email. Once a vote has been made the voter will receive an email from GlobalGiving to confirm. Only upon confirmation will that vote be counted.
An individual may vote for as many photos as they wish, but they may only vote once per photo.
Any activity not in the spirit of having individuals vote will not be counted towards vote totals and will disqualify an organization from winning any of the prizes.
GlobalGiving will be monitoring all voting activity and will cross match email addresses, names, countries, and IP addresses to determine the validity of all voters. Votes that are deemed as fraudulent will be removed and may disqualify the organization from winning any prizes.
The one photo with the most votes overall at noon EDT on August 15 will be awarded a $1,000 bonus to support the organization's work and will be featured on the GlobalGiving homepage for a full day.
One runner-up from each of the five categories will each be featured for a full day on the GlobalGiving homepage and will be highlighted through GlobalGiving's social media outreach.
