You're in good company....
Dance clubs and organisations need to engage dancers and keep them active in order to reduce the risk of losing members. Dance competitions can be run virtually for solo performances or even small teams. Get dancers to compete for peoples choice awards or run structured judging events. Your competition is also a great way to support fund raising for clubs and dancers.
We have all seen competitions such as The Voice™ and Country's Got Talent™. These types of competitions gives musicians the opportunity to compete against their peers through multiple rounds and win to progress onto greater things. Well doing this online can be a great way to source musical talent from the safety of a virtual environment. Create your own Battle of the Bands or Next Talent competition.
Sports are more than just games and entertainment. Fighting to win draws on cooperation, concentration, coordination, and creativity—all goals worth striving for in their own right. By scaling, augmenting or replacing your sporting events to an online competition means entrants have a better opportunity to safely compete and keep engaged with their sport.
Educational institutes— whether it’s schools, colleges, universities or educational service providers — are now using online contests to scale and accelerate their engagement with students particularly if class access has been impacted. This keeps students engaged and provides a challenge to break up the normal routine.
By leveraging authentic content generated by students and using the thrill and excitement of competition is creating huge benefits for educators.
Charities are realizing the power that online competitions bring to their supporters. In many cases charity and other Not-For-Profit organizations are leveraging competitions to supplement their fundraising activities. Whether it is asking participants to donate funds to enter the competition or asking participants to donate funds for votes. This helps subsidise fundraising and also creates a platform for supporters to spread your message.
Innovation contests are a great way to source ideas from either an external audience or even employees. We have run some extremely successful ideation contests where participants provide innovative ideas or pitches to new products or services. Examples include entrepreneurs positioning their start-up business ideas or internal staff providing ideas to provide new and interesting services.
