well, we are in need of wiki articles, so a wiki competition can be done!
This will make sure also people who aren't that good with the guitar yet, can win the prizes. I'd love to win a pocket pod, but for the Lick of the Day competition I just don't have any potention. Then a writing prize could be great. It's just to spread the winners a bit.

another suggestion, a theory lesson (text or video) competition or a motivation speech competition (that's a bit weird but possible wink.gif )

succes, kaz
