We are aware that there are many scams who just enjoy collecting money by promoting dreams and empty promises to gullible candidates, and it is unfortunate that their immoral means of business practices have to indirectly sabotage the names of upcoming businesses that have the potential to become part of the list of legitimate and reputable resources. All we can ask is that you not allow one rotten apple to be a representative for the entire apple family.

Thank you for a great list!! I just have a comment about Real Simple 8767 s contest. The theme you note in your bullet above is actually an expired theme. They change the theme each year. I thought I 8767 d point it out in case you want to change your wording to a more generic type?

Think about this: Hundreds or thousands of other people are likely to apply for the same competition as you. This means your goal should be to make your submission stand out. How? Give the judges something to “chew on”. Whether it be a different perspective, an innovative idea or perhaps a controversial topic, your submission should be memorable.
Can you recommend any of these competitions for me. I live outside of the US in the Caribbean ? Which ones can i enter. I would appreciate any input. Thank you.

Entry length must be 555 words or less for either a Humorous or Human Interest entry.

It is common for contests to charge entrance fees for many reasons and we do understand feelings of resent and animosity that may derive from those websites trying to stay afloat add provide opportunities. We understand your position and feelings, we are aware that it can be tedious for outsiders to try and understand the end goal of every website, foundation, organization, or business. For an outsider it is overwhelming to try to analyze their behind the scenes operation without even having the slightest clue of all of the leg work, and effort it entails to manage and run.
