10,000 TON Crystals per greeting card? Seriously?

If the community wants to support this contest, it is necessary to be limited budget and number of prize places! Otherwise, we will receive an Army of works from the same people, but all these works can not be used yet.
For the first place, the award can be 3K tokens, a few more prize with a smaller budget and plus consolation rewards for the rest of the participants.
But not with this proposed model, otherwise we will receive hundreds of submissions and not used works and in additives budget competition in hundreds of thousands of tokens on some postcard :slight_smile:

If you need a way with a limited budget, in which all the people who have done high-quality work will be satisfied, I want to offer.

This method takes into account:

  1. Minimum passing score to sift out poor quality work.
  2. Limited prize fund.
  3. Unlimited number of prize-winning places. For example, when there are only ten places, at 10 and 11 places may be good works, but with a difference of 0.1 points 11 place will not get anything.
  4. Motivation to do quality work and get a high score.

Distribution of the prize pool as a percentage based on the minimum required score in the contest. Example (numbers are conditional)

All participants with a score of 7.5+ share 45% of the prize pool.

All participants with a score of 5.5+ share 30% of the prize pool.

All participants with a score of 3.5+ share 25% of the prize pool.

If the minimum score of all participants is 5.5+, the percentage changes. For example, a 40 / 60.

If everyone has a minimum score of 7.5+, it is distributed among all participants.

If there are few participants in the contest, the maximum allowed prize amount per person is set, so that there are no staged results with a large % distribution to one participant.

Or the maximum prize amount per participant can be set in advance as a limiter, taking into account the total prize pool.

Prize distribution criteria or difficulty level should be predetermined.

My suggestion is that difficulty level 3 should be considered for this contest.

@everyone, thank you for your comments - please, go on with proposing reward models. It’s very interesting to read and, might be, cards contest could be a great playground for one of them.

I’m reading all the comments, so, go-go-go.

Thanks!

In contests related to design, visual, creativity, when it is very difficult sometimes to clearly define the “coolest” option. Because they can be completely different and cool at the same time. Each in its own way. I propose to consider the proposed model in this topic Prizes and contest. The method of distribution of awards

The number of submissions is only up to the author - there are no resctritions. Only if they all look alike, that won’t work for sure.
