Well - it depends on your community - I ran a $100 posting contests in the beginning of my communites time - and plus, you have to go about promoting the contest on the web - that way you can increase your chances of new members, thus, making the competition very worthy.

Two weeks sounds like a great time frame though. A month? Eh, I think users would be active for a little bit, then forget.
