No. Campaigning for community votes is entirely optional and not all STORYHIVE Editions include a voting component. In Editions without a voting component, a jury determines which projects receive funding .
For Editions that include a voting period, a portion of the granted projects will be determined by community votes and a portion will be selected by a jury. When making their selections, the jurors consider a number of factors, including but not limited to the submitted application, voting results (if applicable), the impact of the award on the creator and the importance of the story to the community.
