I had the joy to work with the great folks at Four32C on an ambitious custom WordPress CMS and contest architecture for Hudson Whiskey “Making the Cut”.
Hudson Whiskey ran a contest to find a new brand ambassador, which included a mutli-phased submission and selection process that rolled out over multiple months and showcased aspiring ambassadors.
I architected and built the site to handle the bevy of content each user would upload as well as worked out the logic for the sign up, confirmation and management of each submission which consisted of videos, slideshows, resumes and biographic info. I built a custom mechanism to cull down the perspective content winners as with the standard blog components. We built the site in such a way that we were able to easily transition from contest to a standalone site throughout the multiple phases of the project.
