Types of Contests

Since my childhood I've taken part in my different types of contests. Ranging from a drawing contest to a software contest to a short-film contest. Hence, I'm familiar with a large range of contests throughout my life, and as far as I can remember these are the types of contests that I have taken part in:
  1. Essay Contest
  2. Poem Contest
  3. Creative Writing Contest
  4. Poster Contest
  5. Short-film Contest
  6. Singing Contest
  7. Races (Running)
  8. Software Contest
  9. Blog Contest
At the moment, these are the only ones I can remember from my past experiences, however as I recall more of them I will shed light on them here at this blog.

What is a Contest? - Part 2

As I discussed more about contests in the previous posts, contests are very much a part of life (At least for me). It is a natural urge to win while competing in a contest. However, as we know that everyone cannot win, we must prove ourselves better than the rest to be able to win.

There are many types of contests at all levels, starting from bigger contests like robot contests at the government level down to the drawing contest or essay contest at the school level. I think I've told enough about a contest and in my next post I will be further highlighting the different types of contests.

What is a Contest? - Part 1

No, no I'm not talking about the British body formed to counter terrorism which is code-named CONTEST. I'm talking about real contests, and if you ask what a contests is then I'll let the dictionary do the work:
A contest, is an event in which two or more individuals or teams engage in competition against each other, often for a prize or similar incentive.

So that was for the definition, now if we talk more about contests then lets see them more around us. We find contests especially in schools, universities and other contests carried out by organizations for a good purpose. So it is pretty obvious that the main aim of a contest is to provide a base for competition among individuals, who in turn are competing for the whole held aim of winning the prize. I will talk more about contests soon.

Hello World!

This is my first post on contest addiction where I will tell everybody about the blog. Basically, I'm a contest junkie, that is I always like to enter contests and win. I started with contests since I was very young and by now I'm always looking for contests online.

So enjoy your stay here while I sit and blog about the contests I join and other cool stuff that will want you to come back. If you want to stay updated with contests then you can bookmark this blog or subscribe to it, whichever way suits you.
