Contests by corporations. I get an amazing number of these notifications by email from PR folks on a weekly basis. I’m curious though, since I don’t see a great deal of these ever hit the major blogs (or minor ones, for that matter)…

… is there any interest in hearing about these things? They’re usually highly niche to social media, design or programming, and the prizes aren’t generally particularly lucrative – akin to a week or two’s pay, usually.

I can’t imagine them having a lot of turnout or exposure, though, so they might be particularly easy to win just by the fact that not many folks enter.

Thoughts?
