    Hey all,

    I need your suggestions.
    I am doing a prom photo contest for 2010 with the winner getting a free photo shoot and a free dinner at one of the better restaurants in town.
    My question is-how do I pick a winner, meaning what do I make the students do to win the prize?
    There is only going to be one winner for a group of four.
    Let me know your ideas please-I'm kinda stumped.

    So the only theme is prom?

    What caliber are the photographers?

    You could make different categories of things to judge on and then assign points on a 1-10 scale, then add up the points.


    - representation of a prom
    - technical photo quality
    - originality / artistic merit

    You can assign a scale of 1-20 if you want more weight on one category, or even only give multiples of 2... :)

    I hope this helps

    Well the Theme is Prom yes.
    But we need to get people to do something in order to win the prize.
    That's where we are a little baffled.
    Prom is for Ma/June 2010, we need a 'hook' for this contest-they have to ........ to win this prize.

    I think I will go with an online submit for this one.
    Describe why you think you deserve to win this, etc.
    I think that will work good. Not a hole lot of options really when you look at it, other than put names in a hat and draw from that.
    Thanks for the help-:)
