Recipe contests: worth it?

I did a search on SE & while this topic has been brought up before, my question is different. The person before was asking about copyright and recipes. My query to you all dear readers is whether you think it's worth it to enter recipe contests. Has a SE reader ever won a recipe contest (not your employer's bake-off, although I love those, but a recognized contest w/a substantial prize)??
Does anyone have experience with this site:
