- Voters can vote for as many contestants as they wish in each category by purchasing the amount of votes they want to buy for each contestant. Simply click on the “Buy Vote” icon located on the contestant’s profile. Votes can not be distributed or transferred.
Prize placement distribution is subject to change if the contest category does not meet the threshold required in regards to having at least 5 contestants per category, as well as the talent being evaluated. For Example: If there are only 3 contestants in a category, that does not mean that all 3 automatically place 1st, 2nd & 3rd. Cash prizes for the “Highest Public Votes” winners are also contingent on a required minimum number of votes purchased per category. If the amounts are not reached, the cash prizes can not be allocated. However, if a contestant with the highest public votes impresses the judges, then they have a good chance of placing in another prize category.
