The contests you see in this forum are started and run by staff, and they are run differently than the contests you will find in the members forum.
The make-over contests and caption contests are something we carried over from MTS2. These "contests" are just for fun. There are no prizes awarded on such contests and no judging as well. They are left open indefinitely and the responses are there for all of you to enjoy other people's make overs and captions in a fun way.
We will also run pagent-type contests like you see in the members contest forum. These contests will be judged by the staff with deadlines and some may have prizes as well.
All of the contests hosted on this site should be fun for our members AND staff, and we really enjoy seeing your contributions to them all.
