    How about the best picture someone has of using their iPhone with a background. Say you have a background of leaves, try to make the iPhone look like some of the leaves using the screen.

    I think a good contest would be to ask contestants to take a screen shot of their home screen and explain why the chosen few made the cut.

    Hmmm. Give contestants a limited budget and have them describe what accessories they would buy from the TiPb Phone Store and why. Most creative or best explanation gets all the accessories on their list.

    Allright, one more. Start a special forum section and ask contestants to create new topics. The topic that has the most different people who post in a given time frame get the prize. People will get their friends to post- but that's the idea. You could also just look and reward the people who have already done this...

    App store treasure hunt - follow clues to find a certain final app/clue. Contact a couple developers and have them each add a clue to the bottom of their app description page leading to the next app in the contest. (TiPB provides the initial clue.) This would be great for the developers (lots of publicity) and fun to play (following all the clues to find the final app in the contest).

    this wouldnt work because the updates need to be accepted from apple, which will time. idk if updates are accepted faster than actual apps though. i could be wrong. good idea though

    I thought dev's could update their description whenever they wanted. I could be wrong.

    I like this idea, but it might be too late to contact dev's to do it.

    The iPhone Blog should post a contest via Twitter. That way you guys can get more followers on there as well.

    how about listing your favorite apps by category (maybe a different one each day) and then talk about how you use it, as a teaching tool to help newbies and pro's alike. everybody works differently, different tricks are always welcome - some work & some don't, but it's always fun to see.

    Forum Trivia.... post a triva question, next post MUST be the answer... if answered wrong you get minus points. Every answer right you get a point (or more points if you want to award harder questions more points). After every answer (right or wrong) a new question is posted. At the end, most points wins (if more than one person has same number of points pick randomly from those with the same number). Game continues for however long you want (till end of birthday bash).
