I just submitted a Valentine's Day contest entry and realized that it may not garner enough votes to qualify for inclusion if readership there is more subdued than in other categories.
Go take a random sample from the Sci-Fi category first page, see how many views each new story is picking up. That will give you an idea of the traffic.
It's not a huge readership, and I believe they like long yarns and expect lots of world building stuff. A one-off competition story? Possibly low interest.
