Art contest prize suggestions?

Post by qubodup » Fri Jan 23, 2009 1:20 pm

Abstract: Do you have prize suggestions for art competitions?

I want to start another LÖVE art creation contest. (Here's the first.)

I have a topic idea (this time it's something that has more use in games) but trouble coming up with prizes.

I was thinking of Rice Boy, the book but it's too expensive (with shipping: 60USD/47EUR). I prefer to give multiple small prizes to the top contestants and to start many small contests (relatively simple tasks) rather than few big-prize contests. I also doubt that all fancy comics as much as I do. :)

I want suggestions please . :D

A steam game of £30 or less? Or whatever. Also, what's the contest?

How about an art magazine?
For instance ImagineFX, Computer Arts, Computer Arts Projects, 3DWorld or similar?
Only problem is that the magazines at http://www.myfavouritemagazines.co.uk are back issues if you want to order a single mag. This is the publisher's web shop, and the back issues are usually cheaper than buying them at newsstands, even if they're shipping outside Europe (about £10 for a mag to outside Europe, £9 for Europe and £8 for UK, CA Projects costs £1.50 more).
Because it's the publisher they mostly deal with subscriptions, but they cost around £50.

I also say a cheap Steam game of the winner's choice.
Any game within a price of for instance $20. There are a lot of cheap, smaller games on Steam. Often special offers will push the price even further.
There are also special offers often, pushing prices below $10. For some reason I've started getting prices in euros now, but for instance Mayhem Intergalactic is on sale for £8, although the offer ends on Jan 29th. With low price games as prices you could even manage a price for a runner-up or two.

Now, outgay that!
