Is it unusual for a competition to not even send you a rejection email? Normally you would at least get something, right? I entered the titled scheme and didn't even get that. I emailed back twice and still haven't heard anything. The initial email they sent was an automated thank you for my application and on that email it said:

"We will only send you a very small number of emails to update you as to the progress of your application"

This seems odd to me.

Is there a way of getting into contact with them?

Thanks.

Be patient. These things are always massively oversubscribed and it takes an age for them to get back to people.

I sense they won't. The deadline was the 3rd.

That notification in the automated email is a bit too precise for my liking and seems like another way of saying you are only contacted if you progress with them. It would be much more up front if they said something like "If you have not heard from us within X then you have not advanced in the competition" to prevent doubt.

It is very poorly worded, leaving room for ambiguity.
