I've read plenty of discussions, and I wanted to know whether the following statements are true or false:
- contest is more casual than competition
- a competition relies more on intelligence while a contest is associated to brute strength (well, I have my doubts about this one)
- a contest always involves a prize while competition usually doesn't
- a contest refers to a single event while a competition can last a whole season
In my case, it's a programming contest (which sounds better than programming competition I think), it's (supposed to be) fun, it lasts several months and involves a prize. Should I keep contest?
