    Entry fee of 5 pounds.

    Only 21 entries and you're making money. Nice.

    Not.

    Kelly, I'm going out on a limb and guessing those question marks are a request for elucidation.

    The point I intended to make was: I think it's an absurdly high entry fee for an absurdly low first prize.

    You're welcome.

    The winner will also receive feedback from judges Tony Taylor, a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Marketing and Marketing Director at the HPM Group in the North of England, and Ross McStay, a web designer, programmer and copy writer based in Glasgow, Scotland

    The prize money is coming from our own pockets.So if they were to be only two entries it would still be the same amount. We want to encourage creativity. We'd love our site to be filled with powerful copywriting built on amazing ideas. We'll try to find a sponsor and if we do the site and the prize money will grow.

    If you have any other questions i'll happily answer them

    Thank you for your feedback

    I didn't have any questions in the first place. I made an observation -- which remains unchanged by your response.

    But you're still welcome.

    Kelly, do not pay heed to Frank. At least your effort gives imaginative minds the opportunity to see how far they have come in their writing endeavor. I would like to see Frank criticize US States that are busy making billions in state lottery when they very well know their victims are the poor who often cannot even afford to pay their rents!

    Then they shouldn't be buying lottery tickets.

    LaLa, victims don't have a choice in being chosen by a criminal. People have a choice to play or not play the lottery.

    Zalas, are you implying that Kelly King is a crook? Tsk, tsk, tsk!

    Of course people do not have to play the lottery, just as people do not have to give money as entry fee to enter a contest! But we know people in both mentioned situations so do in hope of making the little investment bigger. But Kelly is simply aspiring others, however tiny, whereas the states very well know that their victims are often broke!
