Terms and Conditions for the GlobalGiving 2015 Photo Contest
Voting will take place from noon EDT on August 3, 2015 until noon EDT on August 7, 2015
Votes will be counted based on email address. Only unique email addresses 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 his or her vote. Only upon confirmation will that vote be counted.
An individual may vote for as many photos as he or she wishes, but only one vote per photo will count. For example, if I vote for the same photo five times, only one of my votes will count towards the final count.
Any activity not in the spirit of having unique 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 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 7, 2015, will be awarded a $1,000 bonus to be used to support the organization's project.
One runner-up from the four remaining categories will each be featured for a full day on the GlobalGiving homepage and will be highlighted through GlobalGiving's social media outreach.
