Hey everyone,

I was trying to think of something to get more people involved in the group. I think the CR crew is going to be at Otakon right? So my idea was to do some sort of contest.

Here is what I was thinking. We could have a caption contest where people have to add a caption to a screenshot and the best one gets a prize. I was thinking people could either use a screenshot that we will provide from the album or even one of their own and submit them in a thread on here to be judged.

For a prize I was thinking of gifting the winner a month of premium anime or drama membership here on Crunchyroll or maybe a cheap steam game or something. Or if others wanted to contribute we could either have a bigger prize or multiple prizes like a top three or something?

Anyway give me your thoughts on if you think this is a good idea or not, if you have a different idea for a type of contest, if you have an idea for a different prize or anything else. Any sort of input is welcome! :D


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
EDIT: Thursday, July 24th

So here is what we'll do.

Rules:
Take an image from the Crunchyroll Live Stream at Otakon and add a caption to it. It does not have be your image. We will hopefully be posting some screenshots in an album like we did for Anime Expo. Feel free to take one of those and caption it.

One entry per person.

Please upload your entries here: Otakon 2012 Caption Contest

Voting will be for the funniest or just coolest entry.

I do not want to see any mean or derogatory entries. Any of those will be disqualified.

Depending upon the number of entries we will either put up a poll in the forum here and have people vote or I'll pick the top 5-10 and then we will vote for them in a poll.

I'll probably close the contest to entries on Tuesday, July 31st and then have voting on August 1st-2nd and award the prize Friday, August 3rd.

Prize:
I will be awarding the grand prize to one winner. You will receive one month of Premium Anime/Drama membership on Crunchyroll or a Steam game that is $10.00 an under if for some crazy reason you don't want the Premium membership. :)

You don't have to join the group or anything but we would love to have you and may have similar contests in the future.

If you have any questions feel free to ask here or PM me.

EDIT: Saturday, July 28th

Sadly it looks like there is no streaming at Otakon so we are going to do it a bit differently.

Pretty much the same rules as before but now you have two choices, you can either use a picture from Otakon from the Crunchyroll FB (hopefully they don't care) or you can caption an image from our Anime Expo 2012 album.

Go ahead and submit it to the same place mentioned before.

Edit: Wednesday, August 1st

Well unfortunately we only had one entry. I was hoping for more but oh well. The entry made me laugh anyway so congratulations to HaiducF8! I'll be sending you your month of premium membership on Friday!

Sounds like it could be fun. Although my only question is who would judge, would it be a select few or just everyone and we make a poll or something? Also the prizes seems cool but sadly I am unable to contribute to any of them currently, but props to those who may decide to pitch in on this. And of course thank you Viper for taking the time to come up with this and good luck on getting this event going.

Hmm good point.

Depending on how many entries there are we could either put up a poll (if there are only a few) or I could pick top 5-10 or something and then we could vote on those?

Either way's fine with me, we'll just have to wait for someone else to respond so we can get a better idea of what to do.

I like this idea. Having everyone in the group vote on a winner is a great suggestion. That way we can get everyone involved in the event, but it can get a bit hectic depending on the amount of entries. If it comes to that, we could go with Viper's plan and narrow down the choices and then let the group members vote on the remaining entries. I wish I could contribute to the prizes but sadly, I cannot. I hope this event takes off, because it sounds really fun. Thanks for coming up with this idea Viper. I'll do what I can to help with the event if you guys decide to do it.
