Interestingly they also say

Hungry Hill Writing reserves the right to disqualify entries which are reasonably deemed libellous or otherwise actionable under civil or criminal law. In such cases entry fees will not be refunded.

I wonder what the story is there?
And they have announced the Wild Atlantic Words poetry festival, to be held on 5 and 6 September 2015 in Castletownbere, County Cork.  It will include workshops led by award-winning poets, public readings, an open mic event, and publication of the competition anthologies.
