Anybody ever done a successful contest? I'm wondering if there is any merit in doing a "Colorado's Ugliest Bathroom" contest with the winner getting a free remodel of their bathroom. I would need to get the word out so I would need a newspaper or a tv station to be a partner for free advertising. Anybody have any success at this or heard of it before? How do you get a TV station or newspaper to do this with you? What I would get out of it is free publicity and leads on all the other entries that don't get picked. How do I also get out of footing the bill for the remodel as far as materials go? I would do the labor for free but I wouldn't want to throw in $5000 worth of materials.
