Hey guys, as everyone here is aware, Contests seem to be poping up every other day or so. Due to this fact, about 90% of Drawing now simply blows them off, I know this because I do it too. When I joined this site about a year and a half ago, there was one contest a month if that, and about 20 people joined, which is pretty darn good.

Well, I guess the point I am trying to get across is, Lets host less Contests and start joining ones in progress, not only will this get more people envolved, We don't have to sign on just to see 'CARTOON CONTEST!' Or 'DRAW YOUR FAVORITE ANIME CONTEST' in the forums.

Guys, I'm not saying nor do I have the power to say stop hosting contests, Its just a thought that I and I'm sure alot of older members would agree with. Its gotten to the point where there is never a prize, one or two people join if your lucky, The fun and competitive side of contests really no longer exists here.


Please post your ideas and thoughts about this below, I'm very interested in seeing how many people agree/disagree with me.

I agree totally, But my opinion is there should be a select few members that should be, lets call it contest staff, they will host the contests and judge the drawings, there should be a forum for this, but that is probly not going to happen,But your idea is great, there are to many "spam" contests that only a few people even bother to enter,

I agree... there are too many contests... i guess that thing about contest staff is ok... but the contests must be separate... standard drawers have no chance against kidstaffs...

Actually.. Your wrong about that standard drawers < Kidstaff. I've been drawing for well over 6 years, I don't want to gloat or anything, but I think I can draw better than all of the Kid Staff members. There are some amazing people other than myself who just does not want to be a kid staff. I was asked to be one, I turned the offer down tho. Just remember this, because you have a title it does not make you the greatest at what you do.

 So we have to find another way to don't let the contest be unfair... cause sometimes they are much unfair... kidstaff are usually the winners... and yeah your drawings are cooler than some kidstaffs' drawings... i already saw some standard drawers drawing better than kidstaff... here are just a few examples that I found in a fast search:

http://www.drawingnow.com/moona (the drawings she did last days aren't that good... but I've already see great art from her)

You are totally right. Perhaps if there were less contests and they all had a longer more extended period of entry more people would enter them. I have only entered in  one or two contests in the past like 2 years because I dont have the time.

Maybe when I'm 50 years old I will XD but I have to upload more tutorials or something lol.

Back to the topic...maybe like only there would be a contest forum and only selected people do it or something (I'm really bad at ideas).

UnrealPie,

You're right, I'm only new to this site but yes I'm still confused at how many contests are held at no given time with no real meaning. There isn't much competition and nor is there much satisfaction for the winner.
