Creative Christmas Comps 2015
Are you feeling festive? It’s just two weeks until the December dailies start (read my tips on tackling advent competitions if you’re brave enough to have a go!) and already we’re seeing some lovely creative Christmas competitions popping up. Once December is upon us, you’ll see tons more on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram – so make sure you’re prepared by saving photos and answers on your mobile device. Even better – collate all your Christmas photos and notes in a folder on Drive or Dropbox so you can access them at any moment!
Each year promoters ask the same questions – so prepare your answers!
- Describe your best/worst Christmas present
- What are your plans for Christmas Day?
- What’s your top Christmas recipe?
- What’s your Christmas tradition?
- What’s your favourite Christmas film?
- What does your child want for Christmas?
- What’s your favourite Christmas song?
- What’s your favourite Christmas memory?
And the photos you’ll need:
- Christmas jumper
- Christmas tree
- Christmas dinner/table setting
- Christmas lights
- Festive pets
- Retro Christmas
- Unwrapping gifts on Christmas Day
- Child’s letter to Santa
