I would suggest to avoid any competition where there is a possibility of one user's solution being publicly "challenged" by a more adept user. There could be suggestions to improve a submission, however, one user's knowledge/ability may be quite different from another. We should avoid anything that would come close to "shaming" a submitter.

Also, keep in mind that someone's workflow may be the impetus as to why the process of their submission may be the reason for which they are suggesting in their submission.

As a good example of such a competition is the Canadian Geographic Magazine yearly photography competition where for this year they got over 14,000 submissions and chose but a few winners. However, there is a lot of positive talk of their competition submitters from the organizers [].

I agree with Cor, you want to be more specific, you could have activities for each module. Also it 
could turn out to be a training opportunity if the submitter is so kind.
I'd probably start with Calc and go from that point. Make it specific and people could try an "one 
up" each other.
An actual competition like Excel could even be a possibility if there is a lot of interest.

So to follow up on this, here's a draft for the blog -- let me know what
you think! And more ideas for the "For instance" part would be welcome :-)

LibreOffice World Championship - Show us your skills!
You don't want to try with one module (at a time)?

200 million people around the world use LibreOffice to get their work
done. Some are in businesses, some are in governments, and some are at
home. Everyone has a different workflow, and we know that many great
things are being achieved with the suite.
Great things could be maybe more specified to 'wonderful productive
office work' or.. something less verbose ;)

And we want to see them! If you've done something awesome with
LibreOffice that you'd like to show off, you can submit screenshots (or
a video) to the LibreOffice World Championship. For instance:
We want to have real achievements.. so others should be able to
reproduce the submitted stuff. Thus it may be needed to ask sample files
or similar?

* Using macros to massively automate work in a spreadsheet or text document

* Applying funky physics effects in a presentation

* ...
(will come up with some later)

Let us know what you're doing, and we'll collect the best examples and
showcase them here. Winners will get a cool LibreOffice sticker pack!
and a hoody and a mug.. ?

The deadline to submit is XXXXXX. (And, of course, please don't send any
screenshots or video that include copyright or sensitive content.)

Nice - thanks,
