I think one topic a month is a good option and this can stay. Developers
need time to develop something fruitful, and one month is good enough for a
demo-sized application. In fact, I think it's perfect!
About prizes, I'll again like to see Fx OS devices as the first prize, if
possible. Prize is a huge motivating factor, so first prize should really
be attractive, nowadays there are contests everyday, so a big prize will
help devs to decide on which contest s/he have to spend more time. We can
also give away digital certificates to all who attended.
About sub-contest - I'm not clear about the idea...
Hoping to hear from others.
