12 fun Christmas competitions
At this point in December you may well be tiring of the daily Advent comps – and it can be a nice idea to try something different, either a creative competition or one that needs you to get out and about! Here’s my pick of this year’s fun Christmas competitions to keep you busy…
Win a trip to Lapland
For the 2019 TalkTalk festive family Challenge on Heart FM they want to see your Christmas family photos. Five winners will win a trip for 2 adults and up to 3 children to Lapland (which must be taken on 21st December!). Upload your photo and decorate it at https://win.heart.co.uk/talk-talk/ before the closing date of 18th December 2019. Winners are judged on creativity, originality, being feel good and Christmas related.
Win a Home Tech bundle worth £2,500
Look out for the ‘Elfie’s Merry Mischief’ display in your local Londis store. Snap a photo of it and share on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram with #ElfiesMerryMischief for the chance to win a daily hamper. All entries will also go into a grand prize draw to win a tech bundle worth £2,500 – it closes on 22 December 2019. All winners are chosen at random – you don’t need to feature in the photo but quite a lot of recent winners have been selfies! Find the T&Cs here.
Win a trip to Lapland or £1000 cash
Another competition where you need to get out and about is OneStop’s Find Eddy The Elf. Go to www.elf-finder.co.uk, and log in with Facebook at your local One Stop.
