With many writing competitions expecting an entry fee of £2-10 [$4-20] (pay into your own prize pot), it’s gladdening to see one which is free. And which offers a £1000 prize, the largest they claim in the United Kingdom without an entry fee (there are open prizes up to £5000 which do carry a fee, such as Bridport and Cardiff, both open internationally).
United Press run poetry competitions all year with £100-£200 prizes, all without charge (their prose prizes do carry an entry fee). They also offer publishing services from their Admail London address - that in itself alarmed me, that they conceal their real address.
The National Poetry Anthology sounds attractive, like it’s respected and read and stocked all over the country. (You do have to be from the UK to enter). All good bookshops will have it, United Press claim, who run the open comp for its content.
But the rules say that by entering, you automatically allow them to print your work in the anthology if you are chosen. Fine, except for a point I’ll soon come to.
And then, there’s the other book.

The two most succinct points to remember from the above video are:
"There's a thin line between what he (Prince) is doing and what all social media companies are doing; which is, they're all running restaurants in which we come in and bring the ingredients and cook the food!" ~ Chris Hayes, MSNBC
Pay attention, Flicker users. You have given innumerable numbers of your images a Creative Commons (generic) license. You are wide open to Prince-like exploitation!
Use social media with your eyes wide open: you make the cake, others make the money!
