Having a functional contest application will help organize your event.
The key to a good contest is engagement and integrity. How many times have we walked away from a contest and thought, “That guy got robbed!” Too many times, that’s how many. If you want to run a successful, honest competition, there needs to be three things: Honesty, transparency and organization. Without either of the aforementioned, you may run the risk of having your competition lose relevance. You open yourself up to criticism and potential unfair accusations. Having a system in place to protect you from the onslaught of disagreement, will serve you and your end goal better than you can imagine. Especially if you’ve tied your event to a charity or moneymaking event, having integrity in your ranks will add to the longevity and participation to whichever goal you pursue.
