I would expect the subject restriction is artificially limiting your potential
pool of objects. Looking through p.b.i there's a lot of diversity evident in
what people choose to work on, so maybe choosing one particular subject
(whatever it happens to be) would result in low submissions.

If you want to provide focus, maybe have some sort of target number of objects
to be submitted, or something?

Or if you want to stick with the restricted subject, I noticed that some of the
large collaboration images seem to do well, at least for a while. Providing an
ongoing render of an office produced with submitted objects might work. You
could start out with placeholder boxes everywhere and replace them with real
objects as submissions trickled in. An attractive enough render output (a bit
of radiosity, bit of blur and bouncy specular) and it might work to encourage.
Use the end result as the category facing image for office supplies, or
