I've applied for this, but there are some conditions involving rights that are rubbing a lot of writers the wrong way. Amtrak reps, to be fair, have been willing to talk about this, so possibly they'll make some changes.

Yes, I've seen a few posts about that issue, but it's no different than submitting to any of the woman's magazines contests or the NPR short story contest which do the same thing. I think it's a matter of protecting themselves about writers who think they've stolen their idea.
