Abstract: In a standard noisy contest, more competition (more contestants) leads to lower individual equilibrium effort. We show that when contestants can make pre-contest investment to enhance their competency, neither equilibrium investment nor individual effort is monotonic in the number of contestants. Individual effort may increase with the level of participation. © 2009 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
