To or To Not Spend $60 on a Submission Fee

Abelardo Morell, $7 Million, 2006

Spending money on exhibition submission fees in excess of $30 is never something I like to do. I don't know what it is about photography but asking for $60 here and $90 there to submit 5-10 jpegs tends to be acceptable. Who can afford to pay this and why set the standard that this is okay? Why does the chosen artwork always look the same? Needless to say I kick myself for contemplating it especially since I can't get in to save my life (I'm a "Hey Hot Shot," Photo Lucida, Review Santa Fe three times EACH failure = that's close to $1000 = haven't I learned my lesson?).

Update: Apparently I have... Just writing that post made me come to my senses and put my debit card away.
