Pancake Day Competitions 2018

This year Shrove Tuesday is on 13th February, and as usual, lots of big brands will be giving away prizes to the most creative pancakes across Twitter, Instagram and Facebook. Here I’ve started my annual linky list of pancake themed creative comps… and I’ll be adding to this as the comps pop up!

Here’s what you’ll need to get ready:

  • lots of photos of your creative pancakes (some T&Cs state that you can’t enter the same photo that you’ve already entered elsewhere, so take a variety of photos & add effects and filters)
  • recipes for unique pancake fillings (…take a photo if you have time)
  • a video or photo of your pancake flipping skills

Don’t worry if you’re no pancake expert – there will be random prize draws as well as judged competitions. And try not to make your pancake art too detailed – lots of promoters will be swiping through Twitter and Instagram on a small screen, so your photo should look good at a small size too!

I’ve collated some creative pancake ideas on a Pinterest board for inspiration…


Below I’ve started a Linky list of creative pancake competitions. Feel free to leave a comment with any others you find, or share them with me on Twitter or the SuperLucky Facebook page.

Good luck – let me know if your pancakes are prize-winners!

      If you mean YOUR notifications – On the website or the app click the bell icon to see your notifications – choose to see ALL (including retweets & follows) or just your MENTIONS.
      To get notifications on your phone when a certain Twitter account posts, Follow them then click the three dots (or the Bell & plus sign on mobile) and ‘Turn on Mobile notifications’. You’ll need to go into phone settings and switch ON notifications for the Twitter app.
      Hope that helps!

      Thanks Sally – I’ve added in the closing date! Looks like I’ll have to practice my tossing skills this year!

    Amazing list! You are the search master! This is a great opportunity to have the chance to win, and eat yummy pancakes, the best combination!

  4. Absolutely gutted about the frylight one involving “most likes and shares”. In previous couple of years they’ve judged it properly and it’s been brilliant fun to take part. This year it seems most likes is how they will determine the best flips and then the final winner picked at random. But I don’t like to pester friends for likes even in these circumstances. Just such a shame they’ve gone backwards rather than building on the brilliant judged comps they had before. Thanks for the round up – the kids are looking forward to pancake day.

    The vision direct one appears to be from last year.
