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.




 Over the summer months if you happen to spot a great big red thing in the sky then grab your camera and take a pic!


Virgin Balloons has launched a Spot the Balloon Competition; and spotting one this season could net you your very own balloon ride for two.


If you are lucky enough to be able to grab a picture then try and keep it as original and creative as possible. Upload your photo to social media using Twitter, Facebook, Instagram or Pinterest with the hashtag #BalloonSpotter. Tag Virgin in the photo and be sure to write a short description of where you spotted it.


If you are not on social media you can email them via photos@virginballoonflights.co.uk with the above details.


Their favourite photos will be shared on social media with a winner being chosen at the end of November. And if you are the lucky person you’ll bag yourself a Sunrise Gift Package For Two – a hot air balloon ride for two people, plus their popular helium balloon in a box and a box of milk chocolate Champagne truffles.


More details and the full t&c’s can be found here – happy snapping!
