On the up?

Are there more free to enter writing competitions than there used to be, or am I just getting better at spotting them?

The second round of this short story contest is now open, there's a bunch of poetry competitions here, here's another short story one, and another poetry one and another for short stories (you'll need to get a child to write it for you though) and one for travel writing.

Do you know of any I've missed?
