jeff-o-matic - Underpants Gnomes, South Park. When I first saw that episode, I thought they were riding on the joke themselves; turns out they were the origin.

I thought this might be a scam to get people to give away their rights to their photographs (particularly since 'amateur' is misspelled in the page's title). But then I saw the closing statement:
Note: By entering a photo to the Everyman Contest, you give the contest's sponsor, Troy DeArmitt, permission to post the submission on his website at the contest's conclusion or hang your photo in his home. He will satisfy any matting or framing requirements he deems appropriate in this presentation.
That's really very nice. Sounds like a cool guy.

have i mentioned yet that it doesn't cost anything to enter.

or that if your photo finishes in the top three of any of the categories you win cool, hard, american lucre.

A cool idea, but this reads a bit like a Nigerian email.
