Getting started

Learn about the NorrCompetition component.


NorrCompetition is a photo and video voting contest extension. But that's not all.
NorrCompetition is designed for organising contests with voting and results display. The component has flexible settings allowing to organise various types of contests. There are 3 types that are included to the component at the moment:
  • Photo - voting for photos that users are uploading.
  • Video - voting for online videos. Video providers supported: Youtube, Instagram, Vimeo and others.
  • Simple - voting for entries without media content. Basically your website visitors can vote for anything you can imagine: organisation, brand etc.
The custom fields allow to adjust the entry form for almost any situation.
You can explore the full list of features on the component page.

Product Scope

The component can be widely used on various types of websites where a contest with online voting is needed. These are, but not limited to:
  • Model agencies
  • Any gender orientated sites
  • Parenting sites
  • Educational sites
  • Music websites
  • Amateur Communities (cars, pets, flowers, poetry)
  • Food and Gastronomy
  • City portals
  • etc.
NorrCompetition drastically increases communication with website users since the voting and the feedback increases visitors’ loyalty and encourage them to attract their friends to take part in voting. This also improves the dynamics of website visits.


NorrCompetition is a native Joomla extension. The product has 100% open source code, does not include any encoded code fragments and also does not modify the Joomla core.
The main emphasis during the design of NorrCompetition was optimization and code quality, as well as matching the latest Joomla standards and features.
The main idea is extensibility, accessibility and flexibility. The structure of themes allows to override styles and layouts on a template level, what makes the component integration to any 3rd party Joomla template an easy task.
The goal is to provide to end user (integrator) a product that solves common tasks and can be easily integrated with other Joomla templates and extensions without the need of connecting own frameworks or libraries.

Photos Disclaimer

Models’ photos that are used on the demo website are not part of NorrCompetition extension and are not distributed in the installation package. Sample data photos (available during the installation) distributes under open source license.
