A "Look at me!" contest

They charge $40 to read your first chapter, $200 if you want them to read the whole novel. I suspect the chances of "winning" may be close to 100%, but the prize is not publication but a videotaped reading — an ego massage for the author, maybe, if you're desperate for attention, but not much use for publication. Also, this is one of the ugliest websites I've seen lately, and even with proof-reading errors. (“Just VOTED on of the top festivals in the world today!”)

1st CHAPTER and FULL NOVEL BOOK CONTEST - Submit the 1st chapter or entire novel to the writing festival

Real writers can do better than that.
