Contests are site-wide events that used to occur between 2011-2014. During a contest, all TF2Tags users are encouraged to post tags relating to a current theme, with a prize for the most popular at the end of the time period.


At the beginning of the month, a theme will be posted on the front page, as well as listed on the awards page. At this point, users have one week to submit items relating to this theme. At the end of the month, the highest rated item submitted will be the winner and receive a prize.


  • All contest submissions must be submitted under a Steam account.
  • All contest submissions must have the contest theme as one of the keywords.
  • Users may submit multiple contest entries.
  • Items must be submitted no later than the 7th of the month.
  • In the event of a tie, Dr. Dos personally decides on a winner.


The prizes for contests have fluctuated through the years, ranging from hats and weapons to keys and games. The prize is always posted on the news page with the topic at the start of the month.

Since the ending of the last contest, Dr. Dos has only made 18 posts in the "news" section, as opposed to the many more he used to do in the years prior. With the site coming to a close, as well as the skyrocketing price of keys, it seems almost sure that a new official contest will most likely never happen again.
