Is there a way to...

I'm thinking of having a photo contest in my app. The pics would be uploaded to my facebook app page (any page or twitter). Is this possible?

Just about anything is possible. Are you talking about taking pictures with the app and then sending them to Facebook where your "fans" can vote on them? Or are you talking abut showing a series of pictures in the app that can be voted on, and posting the winner to Facebook?

You could use the "Email Image" plugin and have it email to a Flickr email upload.

Just to take a picture with the camera and post it to Facebook on my app page, then pick a winner every quarter. Seems like a good marketing tool for a travel app (if I can figure out a way to do it). Especially for Sedona. Not a bad idea Jake! b

Jake's idea is the way to go, and if you dig around there is an email to Facebook feature on facebook similar to flickrs. So you could still use your facebook if required.

As I look around, there's a bunch of stuff out there. Woobox.com, votigo.com and several others. I'm hoping I can just point to an external url inside the app to keep it simple.
