The Selfie contest is a great way to take advantage of mobile users' behavior and trends. In a few short years, the selfie has grown to a niche term to an action known throughout the world. 

NB: You cannot add two selfie contests in the same experiment. This creates a conflict in the CSV file and you may lose some information related to your experiment. Exemple not to be reproduced : selfie contest + selfie contest

Creating a Selfie contest

Once the Add-on is enabled, you are able to create a Selfie contest:

  1. select the Microsite format;

  2. add a new screen in the timeline;

  3. choose "Selfie contest". 

Game process

The Selfie contest has three key steps: the intro, the game, and the outro. 

Intro: the game's welcome screen, where you can explain the goal of the game.
Game: where users can submit their entry.
Outro: the game's end screen, where participants can browse and vote for other entries.


There are several settings you can customize and display (or not) in your Selfie contest:

  • propose file upload;

  • participate with photos;

  • participate with videos. You will be able to choose the minimum or maximum duration of the videos. The time is in seconds;

  • participation requires moderation;

  • allow to vote;

  • background color;

  • exit button.

Sharing and Virality

You can ease the spread of your game via email buttons or the preloaded Share feature for Facebook and Twitter. Participants can also directly share their own entry to their friends or coworkers, which will bring more users to your game.


You can add a filter to your Selfie contest through the "+" button.

The filter must be in portrait format in 16:9 (for mobile)

Example: 1080x1920 px


To make sure that entries in your Selfie contest observe the theme you've set out as well as general rules, you can moderate the gallery and quickly delete entries that do not suit your brand.
