Hey, if you want to revive the photo contest, knock yourself out.  I might randomly join that one as well, like I used to,

 

One thing that helps with all the contests is knowing what the theme is ahead of time.  With the WSAC, the themes are known ahead of time (unless that's changed since I last looked) and if you don't like the current theme, you can work ahead.  

 

Poetry is fine as is since the entry time is longer and honestly, it's easier to come up with something to fit the theme.  But other contests - you need to know what to work towards since you need some time to get your artwork together.  It really helps if you know that a theme about flowers is coming up and you find the perfect photo to take or create a lovely painting or whatever ahead of time to enter later.

 

As for a comic contest, something I saw on another forum was a "fill the bubble" contest.  You pick a random manga page, erase all the text and then people make something up.  Everyone has to do the same page and then we vote.  Might be worth thinking about.

 

Also, I refuse to let the short story contest die!  I swear to the forty little gods, I will eventually write a story for that and win by default!   :domo:

We could also have a rotating, general art contest for type instead of theme...

Round 1 is Photography.

Round 2 is Painting.

Round 3 is Comic-Strip.

Round 4 is... whatever.

That'd get old fast, and not everybody is good or even decent at all those things. I know that I'd be completely unable to participate in two of those.

it WOULD give artists a cool down time however so that its not ust endless contest after contest after contest.

also id REALLY like to meet the philanthropist who could compete and win in all hose different contests. that person would be the true definition of a "renaissance man"

when you love something..  and I mean. really love it.  you fight for it for as long as you can until you cant stand any longer.  then when its all said and done, walk away with a smile hoping you did right.

We could do that as a sort of interest check though. Whichever random contest has a lot of participation could be turned into a full-time contest?

Suggestion for Photography Contest: what if the names of the contestants don't get revealed until the voting is closed--just like in the Quarterly OMF Banner Contest? Would prevent/lessen the impact of Powah of Friendship when voting's up, I think.

 

(This could go with other contests, but I intend to post this one especially for Photo Contest.)

That's how I thought it was going to be, too.  At least that was the impression I got with having to PM entries rather than post them in a thread.  Sometimes, having it be a blind vote is nice.
