    What does "invite entries" mean?

    Context:
    Books, Drama and Music now have online entry form

    We invite entries in the Books, Drama and Music categories of The Pulitzer Prizes for 2013, spanning work in calendar 2012.
    However, effective immediately, entry forms in these categories must be submitted electronically using our Website. A $50 handling charge for each entry must also be paid electronically with a credit card.
    Actual entry materials -- books, scripts and musical compositions -- must still be submitted in hard-copy form to the Pulitzer office via postal or other forms of physical delivery.

    An "entry" in this context is a piece of work in one of the categories, which is submitted for consideration for a Pulitzer Prize. Do you understand "invite"?

    "We invite entries" = "We would like to invite people to enter their work into the competition"
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
