I think these kind of things could be organized by user themselves, no?
The only quirk with organising contests is that there has to be some kind of incentive. Frontpaging isn't the best option (even though a lot of people will be looking for that option) simply because any Newgrounder will notice the drop in quality of audio submissions. Heck, that's also why we don't see many Clock Crew Flash vids and/or games unless they are REALLY outstanding. Like I said before, NG raises its bars quite a lot.
Then you have the pecuniary incentive. Or in layman's terms, prize money, however small the amount. Who is willing to dish it out?
See, a lot of people tried their luck with the NACs, the MACs, the NGADM and Dreams of Splendour (and even Quest for the Crown previously) partly because they wanted to give it a go, but also partly because of the incentive. I mean, if a user can host it, fine. As long as all these things are looked at thoroughly.
The lack of incentive is precisely what made Chronamut stop the NACs in the first place, just saying.
