The only thing I kinda disagree with is the amount of money awarded to the music/lit/art winners, but I guess it makes sense that the movies/games winners get that much money since they are the ones who bring most of the traffic to the site.Why shouldn't the other forms of art be given recognition and reward for their work?
I think you've gotten hold of the wrong end of the stick here Kirbyfemur - I think what Ismael was referring to was that the amounts for the Audio, Art and Literature were quite low, compared to the flash.
Personally, the money is awesome, it will be spent well, but it's the recognition and exposure that I'm looking for. Because I won, maybe some flash artist out there will look at my piece and wonder if they could make it into a flash. That would be the best way to get recognition.
The amount of money given was up to the site owners, and was an incentive to bring in the best songs possible so that the flashes could get even better new songs. Besides that 100 is only 10% of what the winner of the flashes made. It seems completely fair to me.
Here is the prime example - I think that Ismael points out that it is only 10% of the Flash winner's prize. Greedy people would want more, I'd merely suggest that greedy people get good at using Flash, as there will be other contests.
