Please note that Nosto's UGC Competitions Module will be sunset during Q2 2024 and it's no longer available to new customers.


  1. Engage > Competitions > Add New

  2. Complete the tabs below to set up your competition

Updating the General Tab

  • Enter the Competition Name.

  • Select your desired time zone.

  • Fill in the Start Date and End Date.

  • Under Competition Tags, you can link an existing Tag(s) or create a New Tag to add to the competition. When creating a new tag, simply enter it into the drop-down and select, Create.

Updating the Advanced Tab

  • Under, 'Leading' entries choose between 1-60 to determine the highest voted-on entries in the competition.

  • Using the Auto-apply tag to leading entries option, you can create a tag(s) to tag the highest voted-on entries. These items can be used to determine finalists/winners for your competition. You can also use this tag to display the highest-voted posts in a separate display.

  • Under, Pin leading entries you can choose to place the highest voted-on posts at the top of your display. When using this option you will need to know the Filter you are using to power your display. Select this Filter, and if required enter a number to indicate where you would like these entries to start from. For example, all leading entries should start from position '4' onwards.


Leaderboard Tab

Use this area to review the highest voted-on entries within your competition. This is a quick way to determine who is in the lead.

Report Tab

Once the competition is complete, you can use the reporting feature to review votes and interactions during the competition.
