Sorry, I've been pretty busy lately, including some VERY early starts photographing ships, so there's just a couple of free competitions and a random photograph of a Russian in Finland for you this week.
Free entry writing competitions
This short story competition offers €30 in books. The rules are a bit scant though, and I've no idea what the closing date is.
If you consider yourself working class, you can enter this competition from W&AYB. There's a big bundle of prizes on offer to the winner, including £200 cash. What's especially good about this one is that all entries will receive some feedback for free. If you're eligible then I reckon it's worth having a try just for that.
This competition is for first crime novels and offers a £10,000 advance as the prize. I have a newly completed crime novel, which I'm currently trying to find a publisher for, but sadly I don't think I'll be eligible.
