Default The Ultimate Guide for Contest Holders!

Click the image to open in full size.

Welcome contest holders! Are you ..

Bad with being organized?
-OR-
Just need some good advice?
-OR-
A first-time contest holder?

Well, if you answered "YES!" to one of those questions, this is the right place for you!

Now, let's do this in chronological order..

- MAKING YOUR CONTEST -

When you start a thread, make sure you include a catchy title, but get to the point.
Your first sentence should be something that pulls the viewers in.
Tell the viewers what your contest is about and what you do.
Set some rules. This will help keep order in your contest while you're not there to monitor.
Create a form that viewers can fill out to make it easier for you keep track of.
CREATE A PLACE FOR YOUR CONTESTANT INFORMATION.
*This will help you determine who needs to post and who you need to contact.*
Tell the viewers the prizes. Some people really like to know ahead of time.

- TAKING CONTESTANTS -

MAKE SURE YOU UPDATE THE CONTESTANT LIST AS MUCH AS YOU CAN.
Do not accept a contestant if they have not filled out the form correctly or completely, or filled out the form at all.
Keep the title information updated as well. If you decide to tell how many places are left, make sure it's accurate.
Create an "Excel" chart with the information you list on the front page, especially if you have to judge your contest.
*This will be further explained later on.*

- JUDGING -

A smart idea would be to judge people AS THEY POST. I will use pictures to explain this portion.

So, there you have your contestant information. (This is an example of a contest I am currently hosting. I had to white out the comments I had.)

Now say someone posts, let's say it's .. TexasGirl8 and their Cow, Daisy. (Number 2) Instead of judging everyone at one time, I am going to judge her as soon as she posts.
(This isn't really what I said ..)

Now, let's pretend everyone has posted. I will now take the comments I put onto my Excel chart and put them onto my judging post. I am not going to further explain this because everyone judges their own way.

- POST JUDGING -

After judging MAKE SURE you update the front page by crossing out the person (or people) who were eliminated and update your Excel chart. On your Excel chart, change the person's name to red or any color you want.
Try to notify the people in your contest that results are up.

And repeat this to have a GREAT contest! Since I have used Excel charts, I have been so much more effecient with judging and organization.

I hope that this guide helped you as much as I would have liked it to! Have fun hosting your contests!

Sponge, I learned a lot about contests that I didn't know before! That's a great idea to judge the outfits as they come in! So much faster! Thank you!
