SP Xtra: Editor's Blog

Hi, my name's Sammy and I'm the Editor of Simply Prizes magazine. Every week I'll be bringing you an update or two about any interesting competitions I find or any comping news. Plus I'll bring you any competitions or offers I find.

Win the ultimate ‘Royal’ treatment



Now if you fancy being treated like a King or Queen then this could be right up your street. St. Christopher’s Place, London (link 1) is celebrating the Queen’s 90th birthday in a very special way. Frederick Wimsett (renowned muralist, artist and designer) has created a bespoke portrait of Her Majesty that is sitting pride of place on the iconic purple wall in St. Christopher’s Place piazza.


And what you need to do is visit the mural, take a snap of it and then share using the hashtag #QueenofSCP on either Instagram or Twitter and you’ll be in with the chance of winning the ultimate Royal treatment (link 2). This prize could see you staying overnight at a St Christopher’s Place apartment, grabbing a £200 personal styling experience at Jigsaw, a pamper treatment at Groom beauty house and rounding it off with dinner at Côte Brasserie.


Your picture needs to be uploaded before 12th June so if you’re heading off into London in the next couple of weeks it could be worth taking a detour!


Good luck all!

Week six – summer holiday kid’s comps! The end!

That’s it; the end is in sight - the kids are back to school next week! I actually can’t believe how quickly it has gone and it seems odd as we are still on our summer holiday. Back home Saturday though to a mountain of washing and getting the kids prepped for school. Although I was ultra-organised this year and all school uniform was bought, washed and ironed in the first week of the holidays; which is a nice feeling knowing it’s already done!


And to keep them occupied for the last few days, here are a couple more comps for the kids to get stuck into.


Win some Emoji merchandise by helping the kids to upload a fun selfie. Under 16’s must be entered by a parent. You can enter up to three times every day until 30th November although a maximum of one prize per week can be won by one person. More details and info on how to enter can be found here .


Draw your dream dinosaur and have the chance to get it printed on a giant bean bag and a family ticket to the Dinosaurs of China exhibition. Open to entrants aged 11 and under you have until midnight on 30th September to enter. Full details and entry info can be found here .


Have fun with these ones and remember normality is nearly here! Keep an eye on the website tomorrow for your update of social media comps too. I may not be around tomorrow evening as will be getting ready to leave the lodge early Saturday morning but I’ll catch up with you all via our Facebook page when I’m back.


Have a great weekend.
