A Note on Multi-winner Contest Mechanisms
We consider a multi-winner nested elimination contest in which losers are sequentially eliminated to attain the set of winners. This is a variant of a widely used mechanism introduced by Clark and Riis (1996) that allows one to select the winners sequentially. We show that the nested elimination mechanism becomes equivalent to another popular mechanism suggested by Berry (1993) where the winners are chosen simultaneously.
