The problem with that is judging would take massively longer than with photo/art contests where you can do a first sort in about 15 seconds per entrant instead of 15 minutes. The other major problem is that while most people can at least identify art as good vs not-good the same does not apply to writing. The kind of writing that shows up on a daily basis by writers who think
they are amazing but in fact is awful is truly truly stunning. Imagine forcing the poor Rioters to spend hours reading the average fanfic site and then realise that you can't pay them enough.
