Yes, at least for KA&S, LPT and King's College, and she's pretty adamant 
about it. I'm afraid not much can be done about having some local 
competitions at dry sites.  Just look at them like themed competitions for 
the rest of the static artisans, sometimes your art form just doesn't "fit" 
(mine almost never fit theme competitions).  Or maybe dry site competitions 
would be the right place for a piece of research or a non-alcoholic drink you 
wanted to try?  

Also, I saw some remarks about "mail-in" entries.  That's entirely up to the 
_individual_ running the competition, but most groups do not want a winner 
who's not even at the event, and most judges are not comfortable evaluating 
someone they can't speak to directly if necessary.  However, if you are just 
interested in a wider range of comment, many groups WILL let you send a 
display for "comment only".
