About this project
A fun and simple way to challenge your friends to a photo contest on your iPhone!
WATCH A WALKTHROUGH OF DUELPIC
One day we were at our grandparents house looking for a way to entertain ourselves. Being avid mobile photographers, we thought it would be fun to see who could take the best photo of the same category and which photo would get the most 'likes' on Instagram. Since Braydon had the most followers on Instagram, his photo easily won. We thought a great app idea would be one that allowed you to have a photo contest with friends and the winner be determined on the quality of the image alone, not how many followers someone has. That's how we came up with the idea for DuelPic. Since then we have been building out and designing the idea and now are seeking funding to complete our initial vision because we think other people would enjoy this application as well.
We want to create an application where users can challenge their friends to a photo contest and a winner be chosen by other users of the application voting for their favorite photo. Collect badges, earn achievements and climb the ranks as you compete with others for photography dominance!
We have brought on some very creative and talented people to help turn this project into a reality. Included as one of our reward options is a custom painting from the multi-talented Laura Lawson (check her out here: www.lauralawsonart.com) who is also helping us promote DuelPic. In addition to outreach coordination we have assembled a team of talented programmers for the application development as well as the server-side back end of the application.
How the Funds will be Used:
- Hire experienced iPhone developer
- Hire experienced server developer
- Server costs
- App store developer fees
- Caffeinated beverages for us and the developers to keep us awake while we work away building this app!
We have carefully designed every screen of the application as well as built out every userflow. We also have built a community of users interested in the application on our Instagram and Twitter accounts.
Any funds we receive above our goal will go towards creating a version of the application where companies can sponsor photo contest using the application and users can win awesome prizes using their photos!
We are brothers who enjoy mobile photography and creating applications that add to that experience.
