Just found this on my daily trawl through the web:
"Do you have what it takes to write a commercial crime/thriller novel? If so, enter our Penguin Crime Writing Competition and if you are judged the winner by our expert panel you will be published by Penguin Australia."
(Open to Australian residents)
Penguin Crime Writing Competition
Entries close 23rd June, and you can read the terms & conditions on the competition page. A quick scan shows they're only after the first few chapters (up to 5000 words), plus a complete synopsis with the estimated final word count. In other words, it doesn't look like you need a completed manuscript to enter (he says underhandedly)
Not a bad looking contest at all.
