One submission will win a prize of $200, and all submissions can be published, and not paid for. Also, this is very scary to me:

By submitting your work to any of our contests you permanently grant us all commercial and publishing rights.

So, not only winners, or selected manuscripts have the option to publish, but by submitting, you automatically grant permanent publishing rights to this site. Warning! This is not normal! Any legitimate contest will offer an "option" to publish without payment for non-winners, meaning you do not need to sell your rights for free publicity, and also, they will state a time frame after which rights will revert to the author. Please, moderators, take this down. I think it's okay for true members to post links to contests they've found in their usual lists and on the net, and I even agree that those links are "author beware" and no one's responsible for a submission gone wrong where someone doesn't read the fine print, but it's insulting when people make profiles just to post bullshit like this.
