Well, i would apply to a contest at any time! Even if its not about to win some prices! Just sharing my work an receive some critics. Also seeing the pictures of others is really inspiring for me, i think that´s the main reason why i would apply to a contest. But if theres a price it would definitely be a motivation, for example camera equip.
In order to recieve these prizes I'd have to give my personal information and I'm not comfortable with that. So no. But to say about the prize I bet a lot of people would be very happy to recieve a drawing tablet as most people here including myself are not that wealthy and can't afford one.
Yes I would as I love competitions and as a prize I would love an 'I Pad' as I have most other stuff I need but if I was to win a device I already have I would put it up for a raffle or another contest, Thanks for the idea, it made me think about what I already have and reading some of the other replies made me feel how lucky I am XD
I dont usually win contest. I have really bad luck when it comes to this but I am willing to give it a shot.
As for prizes, since you mentioned it would be electronic things. I would love a wacom drawing tablet. My father considers me an amazing traditional artist and thinks digital art has no value. I have a really hard time when it comes to getting one of these so one would be nice.
I'm one of those people who usually don't win anything. Still, as long as the prize(s) is/are state of the art, associated with certain devices (i.e. tablets, notebooks, mp3's, etc.) or brands, I'm willing to take a shot at it! Besides, I usually enter contests just for the sheer challenge!
A new wacom tablet would be fan-freaking-tastic. My little brother broke my first one, my second and most recent one got stolen, my friend with the amazing tablet is in Kansas going to college, and my other friend who has one has lost contact with me. So yeah a new wacom tablet would be absolutely beautiful.
Since you guys said earphones, bluetooth speakers work too.... hmm... a lot of tablet users would appreciate a spair pen, flash drives with a lot of space are awesome as well. Dunno what else to suggest.
I honestly wouldn't have any expectations; I don't know many people who turn down free stuff. I may be hesitant depending on the contest, I'm a writer only, and I'll be straight up honest and state that I have some serious confidence issues.
so what is this competition, is it for drawings, paintings, photography, ect. or can a poem, story writer, prose writer, or in general a writer??? and the expectation would be anything, its great that your group is helping artist, any type, to get known in DA and in the world. Have a great day everyone and never forget to have fun once in a while.
I mainly just write poetry on a crappy phone that won't let me post photos anymore, so unless it's ok to enter poetry or song lyrics, I pretty much can't enter. Even then, it depends on the theme. Still though, winning a new gadget that doesn't suck would be nice.
