Haha, hi Norby, I forgot you hung out on 8notes from time to time. Yes, we've done competitions much like this on Young Composers - we usually have trouble getting things done as far as judges making decisions. But I'm sure you'll have more luck there than here, unfortunately. If you create thread on YC I'll find it and link it on the homepage section devoted to contests.
