** From the same company, during the popularity peak of the ''TokimekiMemorial'' series, Konami organized the "Tokimeki Teens" marketing program. In there, they selected one idol among a bunch of candidates, and this idol would get [[AsHimself her fictionalized version of herself]] in the ''Drama Series'' games of the series, as well as being able to produce various songs. The winner of this contest was Mie Kuribayashi. Let's just say she quickly fell back in the shadows after the ''Drama Series'' were done.

* Nintendo Power magazine ran a contest for a cameo in the sequel to ''Film/TheMask''. The film proceeded to languish in DevelopmentHell for over a decade, so it's unknown what if anything the winner actually got.
** Thanks to some [[http://www.destructoid.com/meet-the-winner-of-nintendo-power-s-the-mask-ii-contest-287112.phtml detective work]] from the website Destructoid, we now know the winner was Nathan Ryan Runk from Arbutus, MD. He was eventually given a pile of SNES games and the option to wait indefinitely or settle for a $5000 cash prize. Unsurprisingly, he took the money.

** Another ''Simpsons'' contest they had was the "Create-A-Couch-Gag" contest where the winner gets his or her couch gag animated onto the last episode of the season. The winner in America was a woman named Cheryl Brown, and her couch gag had five dandelions on the couch, and the screen filling with tiny airborne Homers, Marges, Barts, Lisas, and Maggies when the TV sneezes. In Canada, the winning CouchGag was a simple one where The Simpsons share the couch with a Canadian loon, John A. [=MacDonald=], a hockey player, and a Canadian beaver.

* The rampaging Drone from the ''Franchise/HeroFactory'' TV mini series was designed by a member of the Website/BZPower forums for the official Franchise/{{Bionicle}} Building Contest #53. It appeared in a flashback in episode 3, and later, rebuilt as a monument, in episode 4.

* ''Series/{{Psych}}'' held a contest for fans to get their colleges mentioned in the show. The winner, Brigham Young University, was briefly featured in season six episode "Neil Simon's Lover's Retreat". The cameo quickly got flak from BYU fans, however--said feature was on a couple of bar patrons' t-shirts. BYU is a private school owned by [[UsefulNotes/{{Mormonism}} The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints]], which is known for teaching abstinence from alcoholic beverages; such abstinence is also required as part of BYU's honor code.

* ''DisneyAdventures'' had a contest where readers submitted their best original villains. The winning villains would be part of a special comic printed in the magazine. The grand prize winner's villain was a guy who always entered ''Disney Adventures'' contests but never won. Since he lived in New Jersey, and ''Disney Adventures'' was published in New York City at that time, they had him come in and play his villain himself (the comic involved [[RogerRabbitEffect live action photos of the DA staff fighting against the (animated) winning villains]]).
