Emerging, tell me why you would not enter this contest just because only one prize. Granted odds of winning are worse but what if YOUR entry is the entry they are looking for ?!

Good question Donna. It's basically a return on investment. When you get down to a shortlist, the one that wins is really much of a lottery. I prefer competitions where you have multiple chances of winning something even if it is just being published in an anthology.
