We want to know what kind of contests you would like to see more of! Select as many choices as you'd like, and don't be afraid to let us know specifically why you want to see more of the contests you chose in the thread.

In order to provide some context to each of the choices, here's a little description for each of them:

  1. Mapping contests - Mappers from around the world submit their creations for an osu! licensed song. The maps go through a panel of judges consisting of mappers and modders in the team, and the winning map is then bundled with the client.
  2. Aspire mapping contests - A no holds barred contest where mappers give their best into mapping one difficulty.
  3. osu!idol competitions - A nail biting and dramatic battle between the vocal talents around the community!
  4. osu!fanart contests - Are you really good at drawing cute girls? Well, even if selling moe is not your choice of poison, the osu!fanart contest is a place for you to show off your osu!-related creations to the community in a theme based competition!

As usual, the results of the poll will be featured in the last weekly of the month!
more regular *m*bc and a repetition of the aspire contest, for sure
I prefer more mapping contests or osu!fanart ones :D
osu! needs more copyright free maps xD
osu!fanart contests

It was quite fun to see how the community draws things related to osu.
More of everything is always a good thing c:

aspire pls
Mapping contests \:D/
I wouldn't mind seeing beatmap contests where the community comes together to choose a song they want mapped.
aspire and fanart pls \o/
From top to bottom
Most wanted -> 'Least wanted' but still awesome to have

MBC, instead of having one for each mode / year I'd be glad to have 3 per mode / year, rotating between modes every month.

Aspire could be interesting, and I don't think the other modes apart from standard have got one of those.

FanArt contest because yeaaa

osu!idol, I can't sing but I do enjoy listening to our singers
i would to see fan art contest again :D
Aspire because hold sliders and slider-break patterns. :^)
Well, since I'm a mapper I would rather see more events in which I can take part, so either a MBC or an Aspire contest would be great (they're kinda equal imo, since both of them have their pros and their cons mapping-wise)
Let's get real, more aspire and for all modes.
Storyboard contests.

yeah when.

i do choose Aspire, MBC and Fanart
seeing More Mapping Contests and Fanart contest in the Game is cool enough
especially aspire mapping contest, which can bring creativity into a beatmap :)
i'll do anything!
#1 vote was for fanart contests since it's been a long time, and it was always fun to look through the submissions for those and see all the talent in the community.

#2 vote was for more frequent beatmapping contests. Monthly might be too often, but if they cycled through all of the modes then you could have some of them overlapping. For example, a new one starting every month, but no two consecutive months being the same mode, leaving a month for submissions and the next month for judging.
I didn't vote for osu!idol because it takes so long to get one round through and the interest hasn't been that great(not even 100 participants last time)
I think it's cooler as a yearly competition and I will totally do better in the next one!
Mapping contests could certainly be more frequently though.
As a player, I'd like to see mappers let loose on Aspire mapping contests more often.
Fanart Contests,please.
Sure,there isn't much to be drawn because it's a circle clicking game but I love to see how creative everyone can get.

Fanart, there is more than enough regular and aspire style mapping around
i loved charles' Evanescent from the aspire contest, and i want to try making my own weird map :^)
Aspire seems like just the sort of thing I'd love to have
regular mapping contests with different prizes other than bundled maps
what about t-shirt designs
a contest designed to showcase music from producers in the community

rewards can be anything and even play into the contest's theme (for example, a new osu! theme song, mapping contest song, etc)
More regular beatmapping contests would be great, especially for other modes (Me being a mainly ctb mapper kinda makes me biased though xd), and I'd love to see more fanart contests for the community, even though I wouldn't be taking part in them, I know a lot of people that'd make some really good stuff.
Regular mapping contests only. because let's see some good maps :D

For sure, this could be a great idea.
The aspire constest was the funniest imo
Again, aspire contest.
Only one so far and it's really fun and rare chance to rank tricky (but playable) maps.

But... The beatmap itself? :<
More aspire contests. You get to see what the community can really do when the ranking criteria doesn't restrict it. Plus, the song choice from the last aspire contest was better than most of the songs from the regular mapping contests.

Aspire. Let's see who can get shitmapping way too far. /s

To test the creativity of a user to make the map.
Regular and Aspire mapping contests for the win.

As I can sing (ish) Osu!idol would kinda be okay too, but it's not really the thing for Osu! in my opinion, and the same with art contests (even though my art is horrible), but again, not exactly the thing for Osu!
I think we should have a lot of mapping contests, since it can benefit the community a lot, with making more people want to make their own beatmaps etc.
I'd probably say osu!idol. I have a really really high goddess voice.

I don't have a mic however. :(:(:(:(
