ROI? Return on Investment. I think most writers would agree that when it comes down to the last shortlisted entries in a competition, it's more of a lottery, down to individual taste, a gamble if you will. So in my opinion, you have to compare the initial investment (entry fee) with the potential prize and if, as in this case, you're looking at 10:1, avoid until the organisers comes to their senses.
