I seem to have a long list of various competitions I might like to enter. Now that I'm considering not entering every single one of them due to entry fee costs (in total. All of them are within reason to me.), I'm purely wondering why I'm going to enter. Obviously some competitions are for a charity cause and I don't mind enter those so much.

How many of you enter lots of competitions? I mean shows in galleries and local spaces, not camera clubs.

Do you get lots of sales or attention when you do get into a show? I've only been in one show so far (a group one) but didn't get much "attention" (emails or sales) from it.
