saying round made me think, maybe there could be some type of head-to-head bracket style challenge after a few normal contests have passed. Every week there is a challenge and you are competing against another member to complete the challenge better.
Every participant would vote in each matchup and provide reasoning for why they voted as they did (adding even more constructive feedback).
A prize could be given for the top 3 or 4 contestants and the person who gave the best critiques (maybe?) could also receive some prize in order to keep people interested in the later rounds and accrue votes in the later rounds.
Maybe this is too competitive or too hard to put together, just popped into my head and thought I would share it.
Great Idea Tijmen! I think a $10 buy-in would be a good price as many members are in school, are young or otherwise can't quite afford that much. Possibly there could be 2 different contests, one for more experienced photographers with a higher entry fee and one for beginners with a lower entry fee.
Maybe Bishop can even throw in some NS cash :D, like a few producers get, in order to encourage the media members of this site and it could possibly increase site views (maybe doubtful).
