I've just found out about a competition for writers of children's fiction here and wanted to let you all know about it as soon as I could.
It's judged by children and the prizes sound awesome. There's a £25 entry fee per novel you submit but there are no limit to the amount you can enter so if you enter one novel it would cost £25 but if you enter 5 then the price would be £125.
Apparently there have been authors taken on from this competition even though they've been rejected by the same agent that takes them on, so it's worth entering!
Good luck and don't forget where you heard about it if you're awarded a multi million pound contract with one of the agencies judging it!
