I kind of like the idea of dedicating a particular month to a particular medium. Even better, I would LOVE if people submitted in a particular theme in all mediums, but we could know in what medium each piece was created.

Weighing in because I should get some time back next year to come back!

Opposites: this was something I tried to run at swap-bot, but you know, life and such.... Basically, each month I was running a swap with a poll and the topic would be something vs something (old vs young, living vs dead, food vs drink etc.). Players would pick a side and draw an ATC for that side. You could have it as vote for the best and then have a team win or a tally of entries for each pick to add an extra element.

Just ignore me if this is too left field!

Other ideas:
Girls on Film
Man in the Moon
What dreams look like...

Strawberries (think outside the box....strawberry fairy, cocktail with strawberries, strawberry field, jam, Childs face covered in strawberry juice, whimsical animal with strawberry hat)

I think I could go on and on and on.....I love thinking of ideas!

I've not been in here that long but from the swaps I've seen it seems to be drawn/painted or hand drawn/painted entries.....is that because people using other media don't want to enter or feel it's hard to compare the styles side by side? I find collage really hard to do well myself and my mixed media is more mixing my hand drawn and painted media so having acrylics, inks, water colour, pencil, pen, all in one piece with perhaps some torn paper, was hi tape within the layers.....just thought it was god for thought as in the gallery there are a lot of people who are working on more collage mixed media...

I'd love to see competitions where we could know the media used....

What about competitions where you need to incorporate elements of a specific media but can use whatever else you wish?

Yes, what Raek said, more college and mixed media.
All the other ideas and themes sound great too.
That should be enough for a few years.
