So, haha I know that this contest is closed, but since the prize is still up for grabs and someone might be looking for a contest idea, I thought I would offer my idea.
A rescue contest. People can post before and after pictures from when they bought their Betta (whether it's from a LPS or not) and how they improved once they were placed in their permanent homes. They can also caption with diseases that the fish fought before being rescued and what they used to help their fish. The contest would be judged on how touching the rescue story is and how much improvement the Betta showed. Contestants can even talk about how they complained about unjust conditions for the fish. It would be great for promoting animal welfare!

One male veiltail named Finnick and hopefully a six girl, ten gallon sorority with four Otos very soon!

Dique gave the person who won the other contest a 5 gallon tank and all items for the fish since the person who won this didn't want the GC. So the prize isn't still up for grabs.

No worries! I hosted a rescue contest last year that was similar to your suggestion. I'll host another one in the near future, but because as I'm in between moves and currently on vacation, will not have time to set something up just yet (busy taking kids to the beach and the wife shopping, lol). You should look up that contest, the stories were a good read and the winner "Heart Breaker", did a 180 as far as how he beautiful he turned out to be due to the care he received.

"I want to share something with you: The three little sentences that will get you through life. Number 1: ‘Cover for me.’ Number 2: ‘Oh, good idea, Boss!’ Number 3: ‘It was like that when I got here.’” (Homer Simpson)

Oh, I will look it up! I always love hearing about rescues and how they turn out, some of them are just so heart wrenching
