I did think of having a go (not that I thought I would get very far but would be good for my photography) and could just about swallow the entrance fee but then to drop the prize down in value seems really unreasonable. Competing for a big prize makes the event more prestegious, 10K would buy a lot of high end kit as well where as £1500 would get a decent camera body or a lens or two.
There was probably a lot of money made to more than cover the costs by sponsorship alone to me the combination of dropping prize + entrance fee = greed.
To me the whole event has been de-valued.
