The winner of this competition will be paid £20 a word! There are slight downsides in that entries may only be 100 words long and sort of give up copyright*, but I'm not going to
let them stop me charging into action.
*Terms and conditions state you give up copyright, but in the questions RD state -
"No matter what happens in the competition you can still promote, share or publish your work however you like. The copyright T&Cs are only in place to show that you have agreed to have your work published by Reader's Digest should you win the competition."
"Hello, this is because we will be publishing them across our media - so in print, the app, and online. We may also wish to publish some of the best ones in future editions."
Slightly confusing. I take it as meaning that entrants give them non exclusive copyright.
