RE: The 30 days term

It's actually common practice for many magazines to apply and enforce a period of exclusivity for any submitted articles. Many, in fact, restrict submissions to other magazines until such time as they have accepted or declined the article in question. Think of such things as first serial publishing, etc. which rights are negotiated and either accepted or declined by the author.

There is nothing unusual, and certainly nothing "sickening" about the limitations placed upon submissions to this contest.

If you don't like it, take the well-advised Mylanta (or Pepto-Bismal, if your mood is dismal) and get a grip.
