That has also been one of my worries, with a contest there will be 
inevitably some who will try to cheat. Which would then require some 
sort of controlling, but people getting disqualified if cheating was 
discovered and simple analysis on user entries might already prevent a 
lot of spam.

Besides the contest, do you think the general concept of organizing a 
mapping day/week/weekend is something people might be interested?
