Using proprietary technologies that combine facial & object recognition, GPS, and real-time cloud delivery with the convenience of a text-based interface, Waldo enables photos to flow from the photographer to the photographed, as seamlessly as they should.


How to get your contestant photos:

Step 1: Complete your Pageant Event Purchase Form. (Click here to find your pageant.)

Step 2: After you’ve completed the form:

  • Check Your Email for a Quote. On this quote, select your optionals if desired.
  • Press Next and Sign the Contract
  • Press Next and Complete your payment.

*Note: Quotes will be adjusted based on your pageant date if you haven’t paid before the deadline.

Step 3: How to download your photos with Waldo.

After your payment is complete you will receive a text message to the cell phone number you provide with directions. (This could take 24-48 hours once the pageant competitions have begun. Please be patient.)

Follow the directions in the text message and reply to the text with a selfie of the contestant. Tips for taking selfies:

  1. Lighting is everything. Turn your face toward a window with natural light.
  2. Smile Like You Mean It. Natural smiles are always better.
  3. Don’t Edit. No filters needed.
  4. Be Mindful of Your Background. Solid is always better.

The facial recognition provides secure technology that matches user-submitted selfies to photos in our albums.

Additional directions to follow on how to retrieve your images directly from your phone. You will also receive text alerts or app notifications every time a new photo is found of an enrolled user

Expect an initial delivery within 48 hours and all photos within 30 days of the pageant.

FAQs

When will they be ready?

Expect an initial delivery within 48 hours after the start of the pageant and all photos within 30 days of the pageant.

How many images will I receive?

The number of images you receive depends on how you maximize your stage time. A specific number of images is not guaranteed. As with all event photography, all sales are final.

Do you sell individual photos or can I preview photos?

We do not provide previews or sell individual photos due to past contestants taking screenshots of their preview photos. We are sorry for the inconvenience but this is the best way to protect or work. We hope our displayed work of the pageant and previous pageants speaks for itself and offers an insight to what your photos would look like. 

Can I print my images?

Images come with a personal print release and are yours to keep and print at the lab of your choice and use on social media and share with friends and family. CD’S and USB’s are NOT available. All images are delivered digitally.
