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.

Introducing the new Ant or Dec...

Do you have a little star in the making lurking at home? Well take a look at this; Bafta is running their ‘Young Presenter Competition’ where they are offering a once in a lifetime prize for the winner!


The lucky youngster will scoop a spot filming with the production crew at Bafta’s Children’s Awards. They are looking for someone friendly and engaging with a real passion for presenting.


So if you know a new Ant or Dec then get them to submit their entry by creating a short video (no more than two minutes) interviewing someone they would give an award to (a teacher, parent, sibling etc.). Full details can be found here where they give some top tips for the recording.


The competition is open to entrants between the ages of 7 and 14 and the closing date is 10am on 6th October. A parent or guardian will need to give their consent to the entry.


Good luck and I’ll see your little superstar on the TV!

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.
