First time prize winner! I entered the Penshop Art2015 with the theme Talking is for now writing is forever. Immediately I thought of Cave Painting so I drew and submitted my sketch and it Won! You could send multiple entries, so I also submitted my Eygptian themed drawing. I've only been comping a few months but I've always loved art & photography and as I am an unemployed Clerical Officer I thought I may as well pursue my hobby.
I only started comping sometime in March this year and about three weeks later I got an email to say I have won the Campbells Butchers easter competition £100 worth of meat.
I was over the moon and ordered a big box of different meats. First time I tried haggis. On the day the meat delivery came I also recieved a parcel from The World of Cross stitching including some lovely Maria Diaz cross stitch books. It's been quiet the last few weeks since until a few days ago I got an WEM to say I have won a selection of nail varnish not recieved them yet though.this has really encouraged me to keep comping and I hope it was'nt just beginners luck.
I started entering competitions around a year and a half ago, even though I haven't won anything big I had some great wins last year.

Unfortunately 2015 has been slow with only 4 wins including a Pyrex kitchenware set worth £53, £10 iTunes voucher,Mentos goodies including earphones and a cleaning bundle. I still haven't lost hope and will continue to use the prize finder website as my first port of call :-).
After not winning any competitions in ages I had almost given up hope. One day on my break at work I decided to check my emails and was very surprised to receive one titled Congratulations Lucy! I was very surprised to find out I had won a Thorntons Harry the Hopalot bunny from Ashleigh money saver. I was over the moon! Unfortunately it was a very hot day when I received my prize and Harry arrived melted to the side of the box. I was so disappointed. I emailed the people at Ashleigh money saver with a picture who was equally disappointed as I was. They quickly emailed me back and told me not to worry and that they would sort something out. A few days passed and there was a knock at the door, it was a man from Thorntons with a great big box for me! I carefully opened it and inside was a giant egg that weighed exactly 1kg 13oz! I was extremely grateful and lucky to have my prize replaced, here is a picture of my lovely egg below!
Jersey Royal potatoes FB page is running a weekly photo competition to show how you're using JR in cooking. I've received an e-mail that I've won 2 weeks ago, but not sure what was the prize (their FB page also didn't announce that week's prize)..so it's gonna be a surprise. It's worth to get involved, as the prizes will go up in value.
My friend told me about Prizefinder back in January and by February I was entering competitions every day but after a couple of months and no wins I considered giving up. Then I received an email telling me I had won two tickets in April to Grand Designs in London which was a great day out, we even got a goodie bag of freebies as we went in! These were followed by a signed cook book I won through Twitter then chocolate eggs in a Sky comp I was a runner up in, all in the same month! I'm hoping this is the start of my winning streak. Thanks Prizefinder.
After a winning drought of around 4 months, finally won a Limited Edition Print of my choice from Richard Buckley on Facebook. I'd been following for sometime hoping to win one of his abstracts, but I am more than happy with his current series, which will be perfect for our daughter's room :)
I was really pleased to win competitions from two brand new (to me!) mediums last month. Firstly I won my first ever Twitter competition - a car air freshener. It was proof that Twitter comps *are* winnable, at least. Then I won a beautiful necklace (pictured) from Moon Tide Jewellery on Instagram. Other wins for April included books from Goodreads, a DVD, and a backpack and water bottle from Facebook. Fingers crossed for May!
