The first sentence is that of "thanks...". The first few words of the second sentence usually gives it away. "We appreciate the opportunity....", and then reading further isn't necessary, but we do anyways. What follows is a letter, trying to be as nice as possible, explaining how you were not selected. In an attempt to make us not feel so bad, the blow is softened by stating, "there was a massive number of submissions and only a small percentage could be accepted." It's finished off with "it was a difficult decision...".
Below are three things you can do with a rejection letter.
Be grateful you had the opportunity to get your work in front of other people. This opportunity will lead you to the next. It's a small step in the right direction. Even though your work wasn't selected, someone had their eyes on it. It may generate a new connection by putting yourself out there.
