Judith Crown has sent in these links to competitions:
http://www.painters-online.co.uk/open/?page=portlympnephotos this is the one that will be starting on November 1st and is obviously a lot to do with certain zoo/wildlife animals. If you like drawing elephants, giraffes etc, look at the present link now and follow up in November.
http://www.stcuthbertsmill.com/competition/ is a postcard competition that has a link from Painters-online. I have got a postcard via S.A.E. and am using coloured pencil. It is not the best tooth, but is o.k. for cp and is soft and smooth for fine details. This has plenty of time as it closes on December 1st.
