I just become a Lenspiration member this week. So sorry if this reply is irrelevant, considering you posted 2 years ago! Perhaps another photo contest on your list would be helpful? Anyway, I found this photo contest in my local area and have entered my photos several times. The site is https://www.heardnaturephotographers.com/about-the-contest Hope that helps you. Although the contest is located in north Texas, I contacted them and was informed that anyone can join. They’ve had people from as far as Italy join the photography contest! Hope that is helpful.
