Instead of making the photographs Japan related you could always have the contestants write something about the piece in Japanese, like how they feel about the piece, a short description of what is going on in the piece or just a simple caption to direct thought on the piece. This would allow boundless creative freedom yet still relate it back to the purpose of the site. I think the best approach would be a short description about how they feel about the piece with the option of a caption which must also be in Japanese.

That's a neat idea. You mean the photo could be about anything, but the caption and/or description must be in Japanese, right?

There might be a problem with those art contests though - Anyone can steal artwork from other sites and post here as their own.
How would you battle that problem?

Exactly and of course you would have to have a description or a caption to enter. There would have to be a set thing everyone would have to fill out for their picture so you don't have some people just putting a caption and others writing an entire page about their picture. Might be a good way for some of our artists to get a little bit of feedback on their Japanese too.

Oooh, number 3 would be fun. I love art. If I were to do a manga, I'd write the dialogue in Japanese...

Alrighty. I'll try to make a poll later today based on the current options. If anyone has anything to add, please do so now or forever hold your peace. :?:

Honor system. Someone could steal someone else's haiku or even short stories. I had someone submit an article (I've forgotten the topic) years ago and I posted it under that person's name. A year later someone informed me they had swiped it word for word from another site. Thankfully, most people are considerate and honor other people's work.

Sounds like a great idea to me!
I don't think I would be able to participate in many, if any at all, of those though :/ depends though I suppose. Otherwise, once again, it sounds like a really great idea.

Where can I find baby beauty contest? I know this sounds crazy and please no smart answers. But everyone who sees my son always says how cute he is and this and that. So I thought just for fun to enter him in some small cutest baby contest. Not modeling or anything big. Just little stuff where ya send in the picture to be chossen.

Why are you asking on a Japanese language learning forum? I suggest using Google instead.
