It is great to enter art competitions when are just getting started as a placing looks good on your portfolio.
Here is just a quick tip when doing so:
Don't just enter any and all as you have to pay to enter. Look into who the judge(s) are.

See what kind of work they do / what kind of art they make.
If you enter a competition where the judges are for example abstract artists then your realism artwork will not stand as good a chance against any abstract entries.
another example is a judge who is an art lecturer at a university will probably pick artworks that are more conceptual than realistic because they value creative thought more than technical ability.A fine art tutor like myself is going to look at how well you have executed the technical aspects of the artwork because that is what we teach and used to looking out for.
In other words pick the art competitions where the judges best align with your type of art to give your self the best chance of winning.
