Hi,
99designs might be an interesting option. On the other hand I am not sure
their process <http://99designs.com/help/howitworks> is optimal for Solr
case:

1) the one who calls the contest is the one who rates individual pieces
(that is how I understand it). How exactly this is done I don't know. Does
it mean that they give the opener an account and this account is then used
for rating? This would mean that this account whould have been shared by
community members... (?)
2) the length of the contest is limited by 7 days (is this enough?)
3) there is a fee for opening the contest (35$ - not a big deal but the
opener should account for this in his/her bugdet)

Regards,
Lukas
