The hobby of entering UK competitions, or comping, has a rich history spanning over 100 years. A lot has changed in the UK competitions market lately, and we strive to stay up to date with the latest progressions and trends.
So how do you enter UK competitions? Online, by postcard, by phone or even in person. It is estimated that up to 100,000 competitions may be running at any one time.
The arrival of wide spread internet access changed the face of competitions forever. Compers could now get access to thousands of UK competitions from the comfort of their keyboard, without having to trawl the streets for entry forms or succumb to the ever increasing price of stamps.
However, as the number of UK competitions increased, so did the number of unscrupulous promoters using competitions as a front to acquire personal details and fill your inbox with spam.
