On competitions, from over the pond

How many of you like to enter competitions and or afraid to loose. Here is a short and good source:
"Writing competitions can be a brilliant way of getting your writing noticed, but even if you don’t win or place highly, you can STILL make writing competitions work for you.
Writing contests can create deadlines to write to; provide themes or other inspiration; or help keep you focused! Writing short stories and short film scripts can help you hone your craft; plus writing feature screenplays and TV pilots can help you understand the marketplace, which is paramount in screenwriting in particular. However, there are SO MANY writing contests out there, where should you start? It’s hard not to get bamboozled!! Which ones are “worth it”???
So, as Devon Writers’ free gift to you, we have handpicked 25 writing contests* that we feel are particularly good. We broke them down into 3 sections:
1) Writing contests and schemes we at Devon Writers have personally been involved in as judges.
2) Local writing contests that take place in Devon and The South West of England (we *are* Devon Writers, after all!).
3) Other writing competitions and schemes of note.
So you can feel confident about entering the contests in this PDF!"
