    Dizzy All these contest & very little time to prepare...........

    Honestly, I'd love to be in more contest like they have on MV, C4S or even SM... but they all pretty much give us no time to prepare. No time for the creative process. Sometimes there are costumes to buy, props, backdrops to see a creative endeavor through. Some of my most creative themed vids take me 18 hours to edit.

    Why isn't there a calendar with all the upcoming contest so we can be more prepared and plan ahead for which ones we want to participate in and ones we don't. It all feels so rushed and a bit desperate to be all last minute.

    Putting out rushed content with very little time to prepare, do a story board, film & edit is a rip off to my customer base. Sometimes it takes a week or two to get in all the stuff I need for a shoot from Amazon. It gives NO time to do collaborations with other performers or to hire a professional to shoot it if you want to step up your game. Find the right location in some cases. It is all rush rush rush which makes me resentful and not participate at all.

    Does anyone else feel the same way?

    Honestly, why can't these sites put out a calendar monthly, every three months or yearly of the upcoming contest?

    Because all they know to do, is to organize last minute deals for freeloaders... ughh sorry... customers (only today 99,99% off+ free bonuses!!!). And they use same tactics for performer contests.
    They don't put a second thought in what this means for a model who really cares to sell quality and doesn't want to rip off the customers.
    Hopefully, tho, they will. You're right, quality content is not produced overnight.
    I remember I participated in a halloween contest on a site, 4 years ago. And I had to hire a professional photographer and go in a place that was looking creepy enough for the shoot. I won the 2nd place then, with $1000, so it paid off. And it took at least a week for everything (find the location, outfit, edit the pics, an entire day only for shooting, etc).

    It's almost like they expect us to be up and ready for anything they throw at us, when in reality who KNOWS what the contest is even about? Then, we have to take time off of whatever we had planned just to organize whatever is needed for said contest...Makes my head hurt and I generally avoid them.

    certain sites who started contest from the dya they opened business have a better way of preparing models for them like imlive, flirt4free and even ifriends. but the other sites who never had them and now adding in contest. seem to be on a last minute planning spree.

    which makes no sense when they all do meet at these conferences. you would think they would give each other tips.

    Even Model centro is guilty of it. Most of these companies are 3 years or more older. They have meetings & such to discuss upcoming events, contest & such.

    Posting a schedule of such contest every 3 months is more than reasonable. Which would make more sense if they want the content creators to put forth their best efforts & really drive traffic & sales to those endeavors.

    This was my life for 5 years at a corporate vanilla job. I only sat in on a few meetings about new marketing strategies for our buyers, I would either get an quick email--or worse...no notice about the new changes or a new marketing tool that was used.
    The people in these meetings speaking from the sides of their necks...no clue about how it can happen
