Always the Fine Print
When you're reading the guidelines for anything always read the fine print and read to the bottom of the page. I found this in an anthology call today:
How much does it cost to participate?
"We’re asking for $25 from
each participant to help cover the cost of the cover, website, graphic
design, marketing, editing, formatting, etc. We’re also asking for $25
toward the cost of ads for the release. So $50 total to participate,
though you’re welcome to donate more so that we can book more ads and do
more creative things."
And this was after they stated at the beginning that they were supplying all of these things. Watch your backs out there.
