I was curious about art contests. The most typical one we see is something like, draw my character and they're will be one winner who gets a prize, sometimes there's three winners. Either the prize is art or cash, or even something else. However, I've seen it discussed here that this is more scam like and you shouldn't do contests like these. Since you're pretty much getting tons of free art and only paying for one. I noticed a couple people do contests like these and get yelled at cause of it.

So I ask, what would be a better way to do contests? Some people have suggested that everyone entering should get some sort of prize, but if a lot of people enter, that becomes less possible.
