Default How to hold a contest

* A contest should have a tangible prize, whether it's a pack of mints or a brand new car.
* A challenge is competition where reward is the completion of a task.
* Having others do work for you and disguising it as a challenge is lame. Instead of holding a contest, just post "I need some help blah blah blah." There are plenty of helpful people here.


Every contest should contain the following:

* some sort of theme
* specific rules (ie you must say "this is for the blah blah blah contest" at the beginning of the entry)
* end date (2-4 weeks is plenty of time)
* number of entries permitted
* judging criteria
* prize


- Contest holders should announce winners in a timely fashion. If people are entering your contest, show them a little courtesy in return.
