Cooking contests, anyone?

So, over the past few months, I've entered a few online cooking/recipe contests, and after winning a couple, I'm like a gambler looking for that next game. I want more...More...MORE!!!


I'm sure there's a 12-step program for this, but at the moment, it's fun and pretty harmless because I only make things that we're going to eat, so it's not like I'm cooking stuff and throwing it away.

I'm looking for more contests to enter, but I've got ONE major criteria - I absolutely refuse to enter contests where the sponsors gain all rights to the recipes that are submitted. I'd be fine if they kept the rights to a winning recipe, particularly if the prize is decent, but I'm not willing to turn over the rights to recipes if the sponsor takes ownership of every recipe submitted.

The exception to this would be if the prize was big enough, but at this point I'm really more interested in smaller contests where there's more of a chance to win once in a while.

So, anybody know about any good contests?
