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!

    A great round up Di to keep us all busy. Was dreading when the time came to join tik tok but I fear I can’t put it off much longer.
