    Great advice. I just wish I had the time in the day to do all the creative comps. I have a lot of kids to look after though so not a chance! Atm it’s a big effort to find the time at the end of the day just to get through all the Loquax ending comps & FB comps!

    Thank you so much for the advice, it’s very helpful for me. I love your blog, because it gives me so much inspiration. I’m from Germany and the rules for competitions are the nearly the same. We also have Facebook, creative competitions and so on. I like the idea of making a list of prices, i want to have. Thats a really good strategy. Thank you.

    Excellent advice. My only successes have been with competitions that have not been posted on MSE. The problem is that most comps are on MSE!

    I used to do well in the days when many comps asked for slogans – I can usually conjure up a silly rhyme 🙂 but those days have gone.

    I enjoy your blog. Thank you.

    Thanks for the comments! Squeakymom, if you’re entering the Appliances Online competition, you should also enter the Blue Dragon one on Facebook – they’re asking for a ‘dinner party disaster story’, and you can win a hamper of cookware! Check it out at http://www.facebook.com/bluedragonfans?sk=app_4949752878

    I’m getting better at selection now, both for entering comps I actually want to win, and those with low entry numbers, and it’s having a real impact on my success rates. Going to have to have a think for that Appliances Online one, the only disasters I can think of right now all belong to other members of my family.
