How to find, enter and win Instagram competitions

Are you comping on Instagram yet? The app is a fun way to connect with family and friends and of course, to follow brands and find fun competitions. Designed initially as a simple app for sharing square photos, Instagram is constantly adding new functions like live videos, Instagram stories and IGTV. There’s no wonder it’s quickly gaining popularity, particularly amongst fashion, beauty and food brands!

In collaboration with Compers News magazine, I’ve created two video tutorials – plus a FREE e-book guide – which will help you to find, enter and win competitions on Instagram.

  1. Di,
    I have had a couple of wins on instagram recently but prior to that wasn’t winning at all. This seemed to follow the “tag a friend” or “tag as many friends as you can” scenario. If the instructions say “tag a friend” I do but notice that some people tag more than one friend. Will this give them an unfair advantage or will they be disqualified? I usually avoid the comps that require you to tag as many friends as possible as some entrants have 20-30 entries. What’s your opinion of these types of comp? Personally I don’t like them.
    Thanks Di

      I don’t like them at all Barbara – I think they encourage people to spam with comments, and it can be annoying for the people tagged. It also puts those who don’t have a lot of Instagram friends at a disadvantage! I recently ran a comp where I asked people to leave a comment tagging one friend – I used to choose winners, and with that you can choose to only include one comment from each person in the draw (so anyone who left more than one comment, or any comments that tagged more than one friend weren’t counted). I think that’s better!
