Each month users could reply to a topic in order to apply for the competition with their project/application. At the end of the month the other users could vote for the best application in a poll based on functionality/features (not layout and design as it is more like the stuff to compete about in redbullmary's topic). This would just be for fun so there wouldn't be a price except maybe a little image saying "PHP Freaks' programming competition, November 2006 winner" or something like that.

on that note, I think that if everybody is serious about the whole contest thing...well, everybody has been like 'sure, it sounds great!' but then it's kinda died down... i know people haven't lost interest, but I guess we have to kind of establish who should be in charge of formally putting this contest together, writing out the rules, etc..?
Please, take the time and do some research and find out how much it would have cost you to get your help from a decent paid-for source. A "roll-of-the-dice" freelancer will charge you $5-$15/hr. A decent entry level freelancer will charge you around $15-30/hr. A professional will charge you anywhere from $50-$100/hr. An agency will charge anywhere from $100-$250/hr. Think about all this when soliciting for help here. Think about how much money you are making from the work you are asking for help on. No, we do not expect you to pay for the help given here, but donating a few bucks is a fraction of the cost of what you would have paid, shows your appreciation, helps motivate people to keep offering help without the pricetag, and helps make this a higher quality free-help community

Oldie but goldie - http://alistapart.com/articles/5k/
... the winning site offered a witty yet powerful critique of the current state of the web via a fully functional e-commerce shopping cart. In less than 5K. Bastards.

Maybe a set topic or questions, that have to be achieved in the most creative way possible?
