Tutorial: How to set up PhotoFun for your Photo Contest

The PhotoFun app enables participants to create their own personalized images for the contest by using the image editor, which will allow them to personalize their photos with frames and stickers.

With the Premium plan, you can choose the frames and stickers you want from the Easypromos library. With the White Label plan, you can upload your own frames and stickers, so that participants use your logo, branding or theme. 


How users experience PhotoFun

To take part in the contest, users have to sign up at the link shared by the organizer.
