Abstract: We study all-pay contests with two players in which there are multiple public-good prizes, only one of which will be selected, and the players compete, by making both sunk and conditional investment, over which prize to have awarded by a decision maker. Specifically, each prize may be a public good or even a public bad for players. We set up a game in which the players make their investment simultaneously and independently, and prove the existence of a Nash equilibrium of the game. We also provide the uniqueness condition of an equilibrium.
