For those of you who write mysteries with an emphasis on the solution you might be interested in the Tony Hillerman Prize contest sponsored by St. Martin's Press and Word Harvest. They're seeking novels of at least 60,000 words with a Southwest setting. The deadline is June 1. IF a winner is selected they will receive a $10,000 advance and a standard publishing contract from St. Martins. I didn't see any mention of a fee to enter but you have to send away for the details and entry form. You can find the call here
