How do I run a successful sound contest?

The key to a successful sound contest is to stay active.

  1. As you review sounds, think about updating your contest brief. It’s important to provide a very clear brief, so if sound creators interaction makes you think your brief needs updating, you can edit it through the Contest page.
  2. Guarantee the prize for your contest. The most talented sound creators in our community are much more likely to enter a contest which is guaranteed and offers an attractive prize.
  3. Invite sound creators to your contest. Another way to help increase the number of entries that you receive is to be proactive by inviting sound creators you know to participate in it.

Staying active and responding to the community’s questions and submission attempts, are the most important elements of a successful sound contest.
