Contest Prize Poll

Out of curiosity, I have a question for you guys:

Would the satisfaction of winning be enough to motivate you to enter a contest, or would you need a prize to drive you to enter? In other words, would you ever enter in a contest with no real prize other than winning?

  1. Yes
  2. No

Honor and glory are enough for me.

I don't want to go through the trouble of shipping and handling or whatever, so just having the honor of winning would be a worthy prize.

If I don't win anything I don't wanna participate in a contest.

I'd be fine either way, but I'd prefer winning a something-or-other.

I want a payment for work that I would do for money. Commendation is enough for me to sign up for a contest.

If I got any info on what the contest is about, it would be easier

Yeah, the satisfaction of beating other people is all I want.
Unless there is a prize, then I want the prize.

This is just a hypothetical question about contests in general.

Well in that case it depends on what the contest is about, but probably the answer would be yes

It really depends. It also depends on if I think I could reasonably win.

I need a reason to enter a contest usually. Personally I'd rather something to work for instead of just the satisfaction of winning. A prize would also encourage me to do my best.

You win honor for the Cronk family clan.

Assuming the contest was something I'm interested in and felt like I could do without basically putting forth every ounce of time into it, yeah, I think I'd enter without a prize.

If a contest was something that I felt like it'd take all my free time to do, I probably wouldn't do it without some form of reward, but frankly I feel as though few contests here are actually like that so it's not entirely a necessary comparison.

i mean, bragging rights would be a decent reward.

It would depend on the prize was worth the effort I put into competing. The feeling of winning can still usually be enough motivation, so I say yes.

Nah that ain't important.

you heard it here, folks:

Chronk's honor doesn't mean squat.

It depends...
If the contest is fun enough, I'll join it for fun
If the prize is something either extremely valuable, then maybe

Yeah like I probably wouldn't join a "make a fully sized prop replica of X item in X time" because that sounds more anxiety inducing. The contest definitely does matter, though I still feel I'd generally join without needing a prize.

I dont’ see what the point of a contest if there’s no prize.
