Something similar to what Ptothej13 said, but I saw a contest on another site, but they had to create 3 separate pieces of terrain that went together but were completely different. For example, a harbor, a lighthouse and a half sunk boat.
3665 - Blood Angels
2000+ - Orks
1500+ - Space Wolves

Nice idea Wizard.
I stole some ideas from a different site too:
3 inch base
3 of a kind
machines
secret hideouts
movies/television
1 inch base
back to vasics
entrance/exit

how about an interactive terrain or a terrain with lights and so on
or how about a terrain using only spruws and left overs from models and no other stuff
I think a lot of gamers have a lot of spruws and leftover models laying about in a dust collecting box so just using these pieces build a terrain
is like us orks do lotsa time
what do you get when you take necrons and put them in orks
hmmm....
maybe necrorks (robotick soulless orks with the mind of orks)

I got one. The theme should be 'A Luna' where we all try in vain to make spectacular ruins out of crap.
...Luna will win the vote.
...All cry.
End. :)


EDIT: The sprues thing is a good idea, seriously. Like maybe a percentage of sprue usage. Good one, duder.

I don't know if I'd agree with a percentage of sprue usage. Perhaps that the sprues have to be integral to the terrain piece rather than simply used to add on a minor feature at the end.

What about:

multi-story/multi-level terrain?
something of historical significance
Civic/engineering (i.e. aqueduct, factory, bridges, etc.)

no I mean 100% sprues although I must confess then you can only make wrecked vehicles or totems or somethink like that althoug with enough sprues and leftover bits you get a realy nice ork shed or somethink like that ^^

oh you could also make a transforming peice of terrain like with buildings which are intact befor you play apoc and after apoc you have ruins
before:

after:

or maybe how a spaceship whould look like on the inside of necrons orks spacemariens nids and so on
or build a music festival don't know of any festivals in canada or us but here in belguim we have graspop metal meeting (GMM) and werchter
GMM:
