Rockstar Contests Launches Service to Promote Art and Design Competitions, Offers Highly-discounted Listings

New online service gives contest organizers a new avenue to more effectively promote art and design competitions to the creative community.

July 7, 2008
A new service for promoting art contests and design competitions has launched! Rockstar Contests ( allows contest organizers and marketers to promote art and design opportunities and events directly to a targeted audience of artists and designers.

Rockstar Contests brings together a powerful combination of tools and features, making the job of contest organizers trying to increase the visibility and success of their events a little easier. These features include:
  • Highest-quality listings in the industry
  • Free access for visitors (no subscription required)
  • Statistics to track results
  • Network syndication of contest listings for maximum exposure
  • Multiple listing plans to accommodate any budget
Rockstar Contests makes high-quality contest promotion affordable for marketers on any budget, with multiple listing and advertising options available. In addition, key partnerships with related online communities and publications provide the service with a wide distribution channel targeted to the key demographics contest promoters are keen to engage.

In the interest of quality, all contest listings must pass an editor's inspection before being posted to the site. "It has been our goal from the very beginning to provide the highest quality environment for promoters to spread the word about their contests and competitions", says founder and CEO Chad Lockwood. "We take the quality and relevancy of our listings very seriously."

Leveraging the social networking phenomenon, the Rockstar Contests utilizes a widget that allows creative Rockstars to syndicate contest listings on their own websites, blogs, and social network profiles. "We want to engage potential contest participants to not only enter the contests, but to also help promote the very contests they enter," comments Lockwood.

As part of its launch celebration, Rockstar Contests is offering highly discounted contest listings for the first month.
