Simple Contest module provides basic functionality to run a contest based Drupal website.
The main features includes are

  • Multiple contests
  • Contest schedules

  • & more...

Winner types

There are two type of winner types included with this module.

  1. Node
  2. User

The best example of Node Winner contests are "Top content this month", "Best Photography", "Best video" etc. That means winners will be nodes. "Best contributor this week" like contests uses user winner types.

Contests and participants

Please understand that, this module will NOT keep any relationships between contests and its participants. So it is up to you to decide who are the participants. It is more flexible than keep some type of contest entries.

The contest system just needs a view of any type to select the winners from. So you can sort this view by any sorting posibilities of drupal allows or it can be random.
