I want to make a contest that includes a cash prize, however, I am not sure of what is a fair amount. Some thoughts would be helpful, as well as any suggestions for other kinds of prizes.

Contest Idea

So I have this idea for a contest:

There are 3 groups of 4 people (12 people total). In each group, everybody submits one piece (must be original, no renditions or arrangements). The person in each group with the best piece moves on. At the same time, the members of the groups create a collaboration. The second place person from the group with the best collab moves on as well.

At this point, there are four people left. They each submit one more piece, and the person with the best piece wins.

Prizes: No clue.

Because I would like to participate, I will not be judging. If anyone wants to judge, let me know.

Lovecraft: The Theme

Are you a fan of any American writer H.P Lovecraft's works? Even if not, you most likely have heard of either him or perhaps the most popular of his works "Call of Cthulhu". Regardless of how you feel on his work, this contest has some good opportunity to practice.

This contest aims to make a song inspired by his works and to give the feeling of a good Lovecraft. Any genre of music is welcome and there is no minimum requirements on length or amount of instruments used. The only restriction is the due date, which all applicable contest entries are expected to be entered by. Winners will be announced a week after the due date to allow digestion of each entry in a fair manner.

There is no skill level required to enter, as such all levels of skill from amateur to professional are welcome. Also looking for one other person to help judge entries to the contest.

Due Date: 01, 05, 2016 By 11,59,59 P.M
