At The PrizeFinder there's nothing we like more than to see our members...

I started comping in October last year after a friend of mine suggested it in work. I was dubious at first because I always thought "I'll never win, what's the point". For a month I entered every competition I could get my hands on, mainly prize draws, and unfortunatley, I had no wins at all. I began to get very disheartened, until I found the Superlucky page on Facebook. Suddenly I found a whole side of comping where my artistic streak could be utilised. I've studied fine art at college, but when I left to get a "proper job" I practically laid my skills to rest, until now!
I am now completely excited and motivated by the prospect of having little projects to think about and create, and the chance I'd win something at the end of it! I now don't go anywhere without my little sketch book, where I'm constantly jotting pictures/poems and ideas down when they come to me, which will be useful to current competitions, or even ones which may crop up in the future.
Comping has awakened my artistic side and has been a complete inspiration to me! I get a thrill from creating work for each comp and of course when I win...well thats a huge added bonus!!
