Fun creative competitions for summer 2020
I’m a big fan of creative comping. I love an excuse to do something a bit different – trying a new recipe or inventing a cocktail, wearing a random fancy dress outfit, taking selfies or making daft videos for Instagram or TikTok with my son. As well as livening up the the coronavirus lockdown for those of us at home, creative competitions also give you a much better chance of winning a prize!
Most compers don’t go near ‘effort’ comps, which means they have far less entries than a simple prize draw – look out for photo or video comps with multiple daily, weekly or monthly prizes for the best chance to win. You don’t always need to produce the most creative, artistic or entertaining entry either – a lot of creative comps are random draws.
I’ve shared some of my current favourite creative comps below, hopefully you’ll be inspired to have a go at some of them this summer!
Win £1000 and daily Squashies prizes
This summer, Swizzels Squashies sweets are giving away daily prizes until 31 August 2020 – plus one top prize winner will receive £1000. To enter, take a photo or video featuring your imaginative activities involving Squashies and either upload to the website, or share on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, or TikTok using #InventYourSummer. Entries for this competition are judged, each daily winner gets Squashies merchandise and sweets and the overall winner gets £1,000 plus a year’s worth of Squashies for themselves, and a friend!
Win £1000 Love2Shop voucher
If you’ve been avoiding TikTok, now’s your chance to have a play! SuperSavvyMe and Daz are giving away a £1000 shopping voucher to random entrant in their #DazItUp competition. To enter, you’ll need to create a TikTok video using the #DazItUp filter. To unlock the filter, search the #DazItUp hashtag, tap the video icon at the bottom to create your entry and select the Daz filter. You will need to record yourself initially in your regular lazy loungewear, then tap the Daz button to activate the transition (this is tricky to master!) then add a second video clip of yourself in the same location wearing your bright summer clothes. Check the videos on the #DazItUp hashtag for inspiration!
All the details are on the SuperSavvyMe website – the closing date is 22 August 2020 and the winner is chosen at random.
Weetos are giving away nine prizes of £500 in a fun competition! To enter, get creative with your Weetos or Weetos box in a sporting environment. Then email a photo to firstname.lastname@example.org or send by post to Weetos Competition, c/o Tynan D’Arcy Ltd, Arundel House, 1 Farm Yard, Windsor, Berks, SL4 1QL. Entries will be judged on originality and creativity, interest and entertainment, and should have a strong link with a sporting environment or activity. Note that according to T&Cs there should NOT be people in the photograph! The details are on promotional packs in store, and at www.weetabixfoodcompany.co.uk/summer-of-sport – closing date is 1 October 2020.
