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 a UK break with a difference in your Simply Prizes Weekly update!


If you're looking for a break with a difference, then check out your Simply Prizes weekly update today! We've got two unusual UK-based holidays up for grabs, including your chance to experience life on the farm with a £1,000 Farm Stay UK voucher! You can use this voucher to stay in luxury farm accommodation at one of hundreds of locations around the country, and enjoy beautiful views, cosy cottage accommodation and peace and quiet away from the hustle and bustle of daily life. Though if you prefer your breaks to be a little louder, how about enjoying a live music weekend at the seaside? We've got a music filled stay at a Butlins resort up for grabs - a bit of a twist on the traditional beach break!

Today you could win:

  • A signed cricket bat or an England cricket shirt
  • A break on the Norfolk coast worth £1,000
  • A year's worth of pies worth £250
  • An overnight stay and a casino night in London
  • A Sealy Teramo bed worth £3,000
  • An iPad Mini

Plus more!

And if you've got a football crazy child or grandchild aged between 7 and 16 in the family, then we've got the perfect competition for them too! They could win a football commentary masterclass with legendary commentator John Motson - a once-in-a-lifetime prize that is definitely not to be missed! 

Good Luck!

Doodle your way to a European camping holiday!


The Woodland Trust is offering you the chance to win a fantastic European Camping holiday courtesy of Eurocamp. Now you’ll need the assistance of a little person in your life as this competition is open to children aged 9 and under.


They will need to call on their budding artist skills as the Woodland Trust are looking for nature inspired drawings. That can be anything from a hedgehog to a tree or even something nature related plucked from their imagination. There are three age categories; two and under, three to five years and six to nine years. The overall winner will be the one that bags the holiday. But there will be art and craft goody bags for the runner up entries.


The competition runs until 23.59 on Sunday 6th September so there is still plenty of time to get out those pens, paper and crayons. You can enter here. Good luck!
