Okay, so I got the email saying that to enter a Hub in next month's So You Think You Can Write Online contest, I need only include the logo anywhere on the page.
But...uh-h-h...does that mean just copy and paste, or is there some High Masonic secret handshake needed to make the thing trigger HP's programming awareness of the logo-tagged Hub?
And while we're at it: Maybe this already exists and I'm missing it, but how about a Forum Category specializing in Contest Issues...eh?
To answer your question: including the image will NOT enter your Hub in the contest- it might even hurt your chances of winning since irrelevant photos might distract from the Hub's purpose.
The one and only way to enter your Hub in the contest is to include the WritingContest tag before publishing. Hope that helps, and I'm really glad you brought this up!
here is the official link.

the logo is an image, correct? so I think you insert it in a photo capsule like with the Hubmob.
remember not to hit publish yet.
EDIT: no, I'm not certain you need the image. I just read the rules. it says to use the tag, writing contest, which you would enter in the Tags section.
And that's WritingContest with no space--in the rules anyway. But they contain supposed errors, so who knows?
Thanks for the clues. Guess I'll just do both (image and tag) until further notice--once the contest starts, of course.

I see this on my account pageAnd apart from the fact that it goes to a page which doesn't explain what this competition is none of the links in Your Hubs, Your Account, Interaction and Favorites are now working for me.Is this just me, or is it happening to anyone else?

I want to enter a Hub on my travel into the contest. I want to enter the photo gallery part of the contest. What category would I use to get to the travel photo gallery? Thanks.

I recently wrote a long article on career and have it published online last week. After some researching, I realized that there is a contest going on and thought maybe I will give it a try. The long article is divided into at least 3 hubs. Am I still allowed to use this article for the contest?

Is there something that I need to do to enter into the contest "30 hubs in 30 days"?
