    Tell you what I think...

    I've not made up my mind on websites that charge people to enter competitions.

      Unfortunately, it's a necessary evil for now unless we find some good sponsors. I would love to host free competitions, however it is out of the budget for now. I'm looking for alternative ways to make enough money to support the prize winnings and cost of the website, feel free to share if you have any other than google ads.

        Indeed! Well, I'd be keen to hear how it works out for you. (There are a few people doing the same sort of thing - I guess it's just a case of you guys having a USP and a good backend / website / plan)

          I tend to find that free competitions always have way too many entries with an average quality of photos that is too low.

          Even the little $2 charge makes a lot of people really think twice before entering their "good" picture.

            I don't really understandthe rules/directions of the competitions, I've read them over a few times, but it's hard to understand. How do I know when a competition is closed and the photos can be voted on? What do the numbers next to the photos mean, it was automatically assigned to me and when I looked at the other photographs, they also had numbers that went in no particular order. If anyone can answer my questions, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

              You can try other advertisement schemes like companies offer % of sales to the refering site.

                I tried to upload a pic, but it just takes me a blank page. I clicked enter contest, and the upload media. What am I doing wrong?

                  Are there any requirements for this. Is there a catch or are the competitions really free?
