Some competitions have restrictions placed on who can enter. That's annoying if you don't qualify, but helps your chances if you do.
You need to be a resident of Hampshire (UK) to enter this poetry competition. There are £50 on offer in both under and over 16s categories. If you're from the north of England, take a look here for a chance to win a share of the £40,000 worth of awards. Living anywhere in the UK or Ireland qualifies you for this chance at £3,000 in different categories.
This competition is for those with an African connection. The prize is £10,000.
Sixth formers studying English might be interested in this one. There's £1,000 on offer. 16-18 year old poets could win up to £3,000 here. Too young for those? Then try this. £2,000 is on offer.
To balance things out a bit, this one is only open to those over 16. The only other restrction is the usual one about not being connected to the organisers (which seems fair enough, but I'm sure is frustrating for some)
Would you like to see more, or less, restrictions?
