hey Merrick, take a look at these, it lists the biggest contests +5000 entrants and smaller ones that receive less than 5,000 entrants. you can do a bit of research.

you could hashtag any of them on twitter to check out the feedback. there are other places on the internet that can provide info, too. the two most prestigious are the Nicholl and Austin, imo.
