Money exploding out of a gift box

My prize wins

My competition prize wins to date

This is a comprehensive (as far as memory allows) list of all of my competition prize wins since I began comping back in 2013. It took me a while to get my head around it. I needed to find the best techniques, discover which websites to use and which to avoid and therefore, it was a while before I started to win very much.

I am also going to put a disclaimer in here, that whilst I believe that luck plays very little part in winning competitions, there are certainly ups and downs in comping and definitely no guarantees. Please do not go into comping expecting to win! If you look at it as a fun pass time and see every win as a bonus, then you will be as passionate about it as I am!


During this period I was either severely ill throughout my pregnancy or severely ill looking after a new born/young baby. Although I initially started comping during this period, I didn’t really begin to take it seriously (or keep a proper list) until half way through 2016, when I had a far more manageable 2 year old. For that reason, and due to my appalling memory, the list covering this period is incomplete!
