Tips For making a contest on Scratch.

You might have seen people on Scratch making contests and you might have even participated in a few of them. If you want to make a contest of your own in Scratch, here are a few tips that can help you.

1) Make a contest which all people or specific people can participate in. Give them an easy theme. Eg: ‘My favourite flower’.

2) Give some information about the contest. Give some information about the contest so anyone who wants to participate will know what type of project to make and submit.

3)Invite some people you follow or people following you to be the judges(You also need to be a judge)of the contest. Note that there should be a limited number of judges like 3 or 4 judges.

4) Judge the projects fairly. If one of your close friends on Scratch is also participating and makes a project, give him/her the prize only if you like the project and fell that it's eligible to come first, not because he/she is your close friend.

5)Give prizes to the people who won. Give prizes to the people who won and consolation prizes to the prizes to the people who didn't win. Check some contests which have prizes and get an idea for the prizes in your contest.

6)Mention if you want the participants to remix your contest or make a new project. It's best if you tell to remix your contest because there won't be so much hassle.


Good Luck! :)

I've never made a contest on Scratch before, so I think this guide's really nice. Step 3 is pretty cool. I totally agree with step 4 because I have a cousin on Scratch who's also following me. But for number 5, I've been thinking that a good prize might be a follow, but what can be some other prizes that will tempt people? A shoutout?

Hey guys! I like making thumbnails, so tell me if you want me to make one for you! :)
Scratch the Seeker - great game that's challenging and fun
Pixel Pastries - a game that gives you a passion for donuts
Octopus Attack - a clicker game that's not exactly about attacking an octopus
Midnight Run - a game where you need time and patience to make progress
Rocket Rush - a game that's out of this world

Well, most people(including me) make prizes like : 1st prize: 14 follows(in my view, follows depend on the number of judges there are.) 12 loves and 12 faves to each of their projects etc. and then decrease it when it comes to the second and third prize. Other than that, you can make an even more tempting prize that the winner can have a project dedicated to themselves. First, check out his/her profile and check out some projects of theirs. Then you can write some nice things about him/her in the project. For the other people who didn't win, you and the other judges can follow them and you can put some links of their projects on your profile, so whoever checks your profile out, they can check out the projects and maybe, if they like it, they may favourite it or love it or do both. This way, the prizes will be fair and the participants can be happy if they win any one of the prizes. Another way is that you can make a fan club of the person who won. Eg: My friend in real life who is also in scratch, @Breechase, has won, then I would open a new studio and name it, Breechase fan club. For the people who didn't win, they can be the curators of the studio.
