    Default contest section

    I think it might be kinda helpful if there was a section for contest announcements
    because
    if you try searching contest
    so many threads with links to bushman world ukulele contest videos are found
    and
    its hard to actually see what contest are going on

    I personally dont really think ill be entering one
    but
    i do like watching people at their supposed best to see if i can pick a few things up


    well
    theres my 2 cents

    There's a contest section on UU's home page, but sadly it's not so updated.
    Like the Bling Fo Yo Thing Contest isn't under the Contest Section, but rather the News Section.

    I totally support this section, but on the forums.
    So every single contest-related thread can go into that specific subforum.
    Whether the contest is held by UU or any regular person on the forums.

    I had the same thought when trying to find deaches latest contest. Took me like a minute and a half to find. I guess I am spoiled and want to keep info access to as few clicks as possible.

    Or put simply good Idea.

    For now, though, if you find any contests you want to pay attention to, make sure you subscribe to the thread or make a temporary bookmark on your preferred browser.

    Hey I was wondering about the bling fo yo thing contest. Did I miss the results? Who won? Did any of the entrants post pics of there bling?

    Figured I would post my query here and bring this thread back. A contest section would help me with the answers to these questions.

    I think that a Contest Section would be really useful.

    The section could keep us up-to-date on:

    1. UU Contests e.g. The Places Uke Can Go

    2. Contests sponsored by individuals e.g. mmmmmBop

    3. Other contests in the wider ukulele community e.g. Play It Forward (I was going to give Bushman as an example here)

    4. Challenges of various sorts e.g. Bring the Song

    5. Awards (nominations, voting, results) e.g. Undies

    6. Contests into which the ukulele could be entered e.g. Yo Yo Ma

    7. Various competitions, achievements, awards, etc.
