Each month Blackheath Dawn researches the market for competitions we believe are viable for our readers. Some will need an entrance fee but keep in mind the value of the competition and the worth of the adjudicators when deciding whether it is a worthwhile investment of your time and money. Remember that in all competitions someone has to win and even highly commended non prize winners are receiving invaluable exposure.
