Domain Specific Contests
In a contest based on some specific domain, on which some expert can take better decisions than a normal person. In this scenario, contest owner can add those site members as jury members who have good knowledge in that domain, and who are wise enough to take unbiased decisions and can give their valuable votes to best participants.
