I suppose Listowel is one of the festivals / competitions that has passed me by. The festival looks great fun with buckets of interesting workshops but I don't get enough holidays from work to go down.
Anyway, deadlines for the numerous competitions expires tomorrow but if you haven't submitted, I think you're too late as they seem to only accept snail mail entries.
I didn't enter. I've always found the fee a bit exorbitant and it seems they only announce one winner - no shortlists.
