ManageWP is organizing a competition to get new ideas for the company. In particular, they will pay 1000 USD to the best idea (according to their own opinion) that could be implemented as a new feature for the ManageWP tool.
Of course, I guess they expect to get many interesting suggestions apart from the winning one. And this is not explicitly mentioned, but since ideas are for free they will be able to reuse all of them as well.
IMHO, a original way of getting useful feedback for a reasonable price. What do you think? Would you consider doing something similar? Would you stop developing your own ideas (we all have a never-ending to-do list) to take one from an outsider?
