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.

Forget X-Factor! Vodafone’s Top 40 is where it’s at!

Forget the X-Factor…head on over to Vodafone’s Big Top 40 for your chance to become a star!


Vodafone future breakers are looking for the next big thing, they want to give rising unsigned superstars the chance to shine!


They will be giving successful applicants the chance to have their very own studio session filmed and put on the Vodafone Top 40 website for all to see.


So if you or anyone you know want to submit an entry for the chance to shine then enter here with a full Soundcloud, Youtube or Vimeo link and your details. The competitions closes on 31st March so there is plenty of time and the full terms and conditions can be found here.


Good luck!

Tuesday Talk! (And a little prize draw!)


There are always hundreds of EOM (end of month) comps doing the rounds and I just wondered how many of you managed to be organised enough to do them? Every month I tell myself to start entering them in the middle of the month by doing a few each day so I’m not so inundated on the last day, but I never do! So tonight I’ll be settling down as early as I can and ploughing my way through as many as I can. (Vowing to myself that things will be different next month, ha ha!)


I tend to be quite organised with my comping routine but the EOM stuff just beats me every time. My main comping time is in the evenings but I do try and sneak some dailies in through the day if I can. I concentrate on staying a few days ahead of the closing dates so I can have an evening off every weekend and I keep a spreadsheet of wins to track prizes.


So, how do you organise your comping? I’d love to hear from you and I’d like to post the best tips on our Facebook page to help other compers get their game into gear! So you can either post on our wall  or email me at: info@oxonpress.co.uk. And at the end of the month I’ll choose my favourite to win a little something.


Chat soon!
