Like YAlitchat, a basic membership to Savvy Authors is free and will get you access to some amazing writing classes, workshops, and events (like contests!). Even more benefits come with a purchasing a Premium Membership.
Here's the contest announcement from their website:
On Friday, July 6th, agent Tamar Rydzinski (of the Laura Dail Literary Agency) will be taking one line pitches on the Savvy Blog from 9 a.m. to midnight (EST).
Tamar is not interested in prescriptive or practical non-fiction, humor, coffee table books or children’s books (meaning anything younger than middle grade). She is interested in everything else that is well-written and has great characters, including graphic novels. A fantastic query letter is essential – “you need to make me want to read your book, and be excited to read it,” she says, “with those first couple of paragraphs.”
There is no cost to enter this pitch contest, but you may need to register for a basic membership. See the links below for details.

Oh, and I took a little peek at their event page and saw LOTS more fabulous pitch contests coming up in July. Agents you can pitch to include: Jill Marsal of Marsal Lyon Literary Agency, Laurie McLean of Larsen Pomada Agency, and Nicole Resciniti of The Seymour Agency.
If you're a querying writer, I suggest you check out the links above and take a look around :)
