MADE of WOOD

I would like to highlight with this video the importance of wood, not only in the past, where it played a key role but also today. Precisely nowadays, in a world in constant evolution full of new technology and polluting materials, wood is key to the sustainability of the planet. Wood is renewable and ecological. Taking care of our forests and using wood is possible. With a responsible use, and a sustainable forestry management, using wood is opting for the environment. That is why I believe that a change must be made around the value of wood, promoting and raising the culture of wood, and not labeling it as a material of the past. Using wood is moving towards a sustainable future.

Jack   It is obvious that this contest and others on voubs are set up. You have a point every winner has only one media, so those profiles are created with the purpose to win here, not fair at all to other competitors. And others keep their mouth shut cause voubs will delete their account. Such a shame. Voubs as a contest organizer should be closed and not to be able to organize such cheating contests, which gives false hope to other artists. Just see last Best February photo 2019 contest, always same people win even with the same photo, Kostadin Yordanov, Kostadinka Yordanova, Yordanov Kostadin, it's the same person and they try to pretend they are not if they write their name with different letters, Cyrillic or Latin. I guess it's someone who works in Voubs and actually, they don't pay anyone else than to their own people.

CHANGE in Wood Culture - Short 1-minute Video
CHANGE in Wood Culture - Short 1-minute Video     Please, keep have in mind the main contest idea to select few winning videos. In competitions there will always be a few winners and others who don't. This contest is not based on the idea of giveaway - this means that the jury has the pure right to judge in order to select winner. VOUBS system does not allow no voting for any media. If in the stats it is said "-", it means 0. If a contest organizer decides to vote with 0 , it is his sole decision that no one has the right to object to. Every participant has the right to strongly believe in his win but we don't allow objections against the jury such as "the jury did not give fair vote for me'. The jury is professional, selected by the organizer who will present the winning videos to partners from all around the world. The World Wood Day is a serious international forum which did not empower VOUBS to be jury in this contest, we would not reject the opportunity and we would vote with our profile - however, this is not the case. Only a few comments which are spam & are violating our Code of Ethics have been deleted. This contest was unique for all VOUBS users with free entry and amazing award and we all need to congratulate the winners who met the requirements of the organizer.

Jack   Voubs You keep deleting comments and profiles who says their honest opinion about contest change in the wood 1 min video


It's true that you have a rule which obligates jury to vote for every media.


I will repost previous comments written by users and deleted by Voubs.


Stay honest with your competitors. Be fair.

You can not write a rule and then don't respect it.


JURY MEMBERS IN VOUBS

Main duties

For the better of all VOUBS users, you are obliged to:

Vote for any media you want only once
If you are a part of a jury team, then you are obliged to vote for all media (you clearly break this one! everyone knows and it's so obvious)
Use English as an official language, unless otherwise instructed
Announce your criteria for your ratings with a message on each contest page



Restrictions

To avoid speculations with votes, VOUBS prohibits you from:

Having more than 1 account;
Entering contests; (your jury members have been entering the contests!)
Receiving personal messages from other users;
Tolerating personal favourites (so many favourites which this competition clearly shows with changing votes in the last hour and not voting for all media)

Here is the link read it for yourself

Why do you have rules when you clearly break them all the time! Not fair to all competitors. Such a waste of time! You clearly don't support artists, photographs but just personal favorites

David has a right, and as he said you deleted his account as well!

Jack   It is not a giveaway but it is not also a fair competition. And no if it's "-" it means there was no vote.
Also jury voted twice for some media and not only once for some, which is also aginst your rules, at least you wrote them, you should know better!
Another thing is that you have a jury member who is participating in competition, which is also against your rules.
So first of all you don't respect your own rules, and breaking them all the time.
You don't support creativity, artist and photographers!

CHANGE in Wood Culture - Short 1-minute Video
CHANGE in Wood Culture - Short 1-minute Video     Voting 2 times is technically impossible. Whenever anyone votes, they can change their vote within a day in case a technical error occured when clicking the votes or they changed their mind. All jury members vote only one time with the right of 1 correction or skip the video if they prefer to vote with 0. VOUBS is exactly giving the chance to all artists from all walks of life to be presented to contest organizers such as World Wood Day. That's how many people get exposed - 34 photographers and 6 video makers this year, all having their works presented to international forum. This means 40 people with great career boost. You also can be contest organizer, appoint yourself as part of your jury team by using our free contest plan and to give it a try that it is not an easy task to decide between so many amazing entries. Then imagine the amount of the great entries which would be registered in your contest if your award is higher that the 150 WINGS sponsored by us. It is exactly what VOUBS does: support both contest organizers and artist who want to get noticed by their works.

Mak Azad   Thansk for selecting good videos. The judge is the Admins of Voubs. I believe they are well expert regarding this matter. But I have one suggestion to the judges. Please give your vote to all videos. Because all videos deserve to get votes, whether it is one or zero. Thanks for Good event. Hoping see again next year for this like contest.

Shigeru Katada   My recommendation: Because another one competition for a longer video is closed, owners of this one competition can consider an option for an increasing number of winners from 5 to 10 or more. That would be fair for everyone who was competing in previous competition and to all competitors in this one. Anyway, there are so many great videos.
