      Hi Jesica. We chose to integrate with facebook because it is one of the easiest ways to invite people to vote for entries, but you can still enter without a facebook account. Follow this link: http://promoshq.wildfireapp.com/website/6/contests/293970/ When voting opens, you can share a link to your entry via email. Facebook users will still have the opportunity to vote for your entry too.

    Agree with Jesica - FB is a very sad way to judge photos. That way it just means that the better pics might not get many votes - simply because the photographers really don't want to solicit them. Would be nice to know that the best pics won because they were good photos - rather than because the people who submitted them have loads of FB friends who vote for them
