As it has been said virtually thousands of times, finish what you start, and make sure that you wait until similar contests are over before starting another one like it.

Also it would be helpful if when announcing winners that you post a link to the winning post. It saves hunting though tons of stuff to find it.

Very good tips! Also, always be sure to lock the contest once you've awarded a winner.

Great tips! Those have already been posted somewhere around here, but sometimes we need a kick to get us going again. I notice a lot of people don't lock their contests, and then people keep entering after the closing date. Agh, that bugs me.

Also, I LOVE your avatar. I heart llamas.

Hi, may I make one more suggestion? Namely: Pick one ending date, and then stick with it. Don't change the date to extend the contest. It's discouraging to the people who entered, and it's unfair to anyone else who may be waiting to start a similar contest.

As an example, there's one contest here that started on June 7, with an ending date of "two weeks", or June 21. Then it was extended to July 1st. And then it was extended again to July 8th. That's over a month total. And now it's July 23rd, and still no winner announced for that contest!

Hi, to lock a contest (that you started), click the "edit" button, then you will see a "lock comment" button, and click that!

Submit your audition dance video or musical performance to win a chance to perform at How She Move events across the country!

Paramount Vantage will select 5 music artists and 5 dance performances (solo or group) to compete head to head at events in Atlanta, Washington D.C. and Chicago. The top performers at each event will be flown to perform LIVE at the World Premiere of HOW SHE MOVE and will win other great prizes. LilÂ’ Mama will be hosting and performing at all three events!!! Log on to HOW SHE MOVE and enter your dance video or MP3 for a chance to win! Contest ends October 31st!

The "How She Move" Contest (the "Contest") is intended for participation only in the United States and shall be construed according to, and governed exclusively by, United States law. Do not participate in the Contest if you are not a legal resident of the United States physically located in the United States at the time of entry, or do not fall within the eligibility requirements set forth in the Official Rules on the official How She Move Site HOW SHE MOVE.

HOW SHE MOVE synopsis:
Raya Green is seventeen-years-old, incredibly bright and full of promise. She attends a prestigious private school outside her tough, crime-ridden neighborhood. When a family tragedy leaves her family unable to pay her tuition, Raya is forced to return to the old community she so desperately wants to escape. She soon finds herself drawn into the world of underground dance competitions and smells an opportunity to win some money, get out of the neighborhood, help her family and return to her old school. But as the dance tournament unfolds, Raya realizes that real success only comes to those brave enough to tackle it on their own terms.
