New Poetry Contest

There is a poetry contest advertisement in one of the coupon supplements to this week's Sunday newspapers, at least here in the New York/New Jersey area. It's not clear who is running the contest since all entries must be mailed in hard copy to the following address:

Poetry Contest
Editor 210-3
305 Madison Avenue
Suite 449
New York, NY 10165

The only other information provided that might give a hint to the organization behind the ad is a blue ribbon icon. The words, "Reader's Choice" appear on the inside top of the ribbon and the word, "Ranked" on the inside bottom.

There's apparently no entry fee required (at least the ad doesn't mention a fee) and it claims to have $100,000. in prizes, most of which, "will be awarded to new and unpublished poets, many of whom have never entered a poetry competition before." The ad also promises that all entries will receive a personal critique.

I'm wondering if anybody has heard of, or had experience with, this organization/contest before. Is it legitimate or just another money-making scheme?

That Suite must have the most turnover I've ever seen, or as crowded as a Marx brothers Stateroom

but this is the one I think that is maybe not so good an idea:

Thanks Johnny. A grocery coupon supplement seemed an odd place to solicit poetry.
