3. It looks like submissions are still open

So they haven't got 10,000 entries yet. In previous years, they had closed by this time.

EDIT: I just checked and they are now closed.

5. I missed a really neat contest in January

There was something called NaNoWriWee, in which you have to write a novel in a week. The prize: an advance on publication by Harper Collins as an ebook. So here's the rule: research contests that start in January because those tend to be the big ones. And check out Predators and Editors (http://pred-ed.com/) to ferret out the scammers.
