I know here in this forum we have contests, but since they are themed and are written for the sake of the competition I don't like them much. I think what would be real cool is to choose works posted in review room as best. Something like a film festival. Here is how I suggest the system: Lpsider chooses 15 members. (How many reviewers we have?) I suggest 5 for short stories and scripts, 5 for poetry and lyrics, and 5 for nonfiction. Since we have only exceprts of novels we can't put them into festival too. Good. These 5 people should read all posted works and choose what works can go for competetion part. Like any film festival, apart from main prize there would be a special prize for another work. Then either community or an appointed council can vote for the best. Here are my recommended prizes: Best short story ----Best short story ----Short story special prize Best poem ----Best poem prize ----Poem special prize And so on.
