That IS a pretty funny contest. :D

I've heard of sites who ask people to post pictures where you can tell someone snuck in the background.

Update on the contest I'm running mentioned in an earlier post. It is successful and growing, plenty of submissions and some by the quieter posters. Nearly all have stated they intend donatiing the prize but we will see what happens when they get the money in their hands.  ;)

Well the competition I mentioned in an earlier post has now closed. A newly created directory for the competition now has 44 photo's in it but there are now dozens of users albums that have been created and being used. As to an increase in users, we have gotten approx 12 since it began but there is no data on whether they joined for the forum or the competition but they all have become active posters. I would term it as a success, based on the use of the gallery alone, posting has increased and a new board added on photography tips as members started asking questions on how certain photos were taken etc. I think the $50.00 was cheap for a result I am more than happy with.

$50 for 12 new members?
Seems expensive to me.

I run a monthly contest "Member of the month" where ppl vote for their favourite person and i personally interview him with questions that the members posted and wanted to know.

We post a picture and 10-15 questions about the persons we talk with behind a faceless avatar and we see the real person behind it.

It works great and it keeps rising every month its participation members.
Always looking for the best

Gaining the extra members was an unexpected bonus, the competition was never aimed at that. The success I based it on was the increased use of the features and increased activity and the request of the members to have a new board opened on photography and a whole lot of new pictures in the gallery and more each day even though the competition is over.

Well I'm a registered user on KahneFan's forum, I Post You Post, and the contest he did then surely did get many people posting ^_^ Ofcourse I won *cough*spam*cough* :D But all of the other members were posting aswell. For that mere $20 he got about 500 posts out of it, and made me want to go back for more ^_^

That was actually  a different contest. Since I crashed my db and had to start over, I ran a competition for the first person to 200 posts got $20. And yes, I realize that many of you and Scar's posts were short, but they all had a little substance in them (somewhat) :D
