After using another plugin from this author, I was curious about their contest plugin and I can see that it's a good and flexible choice to get some user-generated content. Keep up the good work!

Very easy to use plugin with only some things that you need to know to create a good looking Contest. You can change the form easily and set Terms and other sites easily. I just wished there was an option to show the submitted images on the overview for submissions. There it just says "No Preview". But maybe thats a problem on my site. Very good plugin as far as I can tell! Also you need the Pro version to translate some things. That is not ideal but the price is kind of ok for it.

If you want to upgrade to the PRO version, never do it! At least the contest plugin lacks developer documentation, but the creators are of course willing to help you with the changes, but for a fee. This is beneficial for them, but it is a complete headache for the developer.
