Why, of course! It's a great way to get feedback on your beer.

What's the competition?

That competition is for very big beers that have a starting gravity of 1.0666 or higher.

Do you have any Imperial style beers to enter?

Send the Barleywine. The feedback will be good for you. I'm going to send in my Imperial Stout as it started at 1.085.

just because you got a pre-fab set of ingredients, you still gotta brew it right...so its still worth submitting to a competition to get feedback from unbiased judges (since friends and family are usually biased in your favor and won't give you 'honest' feedback out of fear of wounding your ego).
