A straightforward question to ask, have you ever won a notable competition, perhaps a local one in your community or a national competition from TV or radio?

If so, what did you win, and how did it make you feel to win?

Also, as we are on the subject, are you someone who enters a lot of competitions in the hope to get lucky someday?

Discuss.

It's odd but I can't think of anything except a general knowledge quiz at school. Pretty sure I was also on a winning tug-of-war team once.

And I also came like 2nd or 3rd in a photo competition once, I won an enlarged photo of mine framed.

Oh yea and BJSC + Unknown Pleasures lmao.

When I was about 8 I took part in a competition where I had to find letters on Christmas trees in all the local shops to make a sentence and then my name was put into a draw. I won and got a hamper full of fruit and some money, which I promptly spent on Lazytown memorabilia :')

I also won an art competition around the same time where I got to have lunch at the Town hall and got an art pack which I used exactly once tongue.gif

I haven't won anything particularly groundbreaking but I have won lots of little random bits laugh.gif I actually have a folder with all of my certificates in it since I was a child but that's at home and I'm at my grandma's right now, so I'll try and remember stuff off the top of my head:

- One that might interest BuzzJack to start with - I won two Official Chart notebooks and pens through a competition on the OCC's Twitter! These were really cool tbh
- I won a trio of 1st places for my final ever sports day in year 6 *.* I won female sprinting and skipping, then all of the years were mixed up into groups (you were kept with any siblings though) and were given country names and each country got points for each medal position. My country (Jamaica!) came out on top which felt so great at the time laugh.gif
- A trip to ITN studios through University due to performing well in weekly news quizzes
- I was part of the school choir and we won some random away competition, slay
- I was given a certificate just for winning a super srs competition at a Haven holiday - aka a game of musical chairs kink.gif
- The winner of two design competitions, one was a leaflet on dental hygiene (I won a year's supply of toothpaste I think, absolute prize goals) and a poster about safety hazards at work (got Love2Shop vouchers for that *.*)
- I have won loads of magazine competitions! Namely: My Little Pony magazine (Iz shook x I won a playset from that when I was really young laugh.gif), Sugar magazine (it was some kind of holiday but I couldn't even go in the end, mess), The Bubble magazine (the official magazine for those Bubblegum cartoon characters that are on greetings cards, yes I was actually in the fan club mellow.gif - won some Bubblegum Club wrapping paper, goals laugh.gif), Your Cat magazine (won some cat toys for Sparky appearing in the magazine *.*) and Shout magazine (I sent in an embarrassing moment to that feature they have and won two free copies of the next issue)
- The most important one - Buzzjack kink.gif Teams, 3 BJSC spinoffs, Nuggets, awards and pop. contests

My dad has the best luck ever with competitions though! It feels like he wins things every other week on Twitter laugh.gif

I have lots of gymnastics and swimming badges, some karate achievements and awards for the musical instruments I played but I guess those weren't really competitions.

I won the Manager Of The Week prize in the Daily Telegraph Fantasy Football League one week in 2000 as my team scored more points than anyone else's for that week. As there were more than 100,000 teams,this was a big achievement. I won £500 and a pair of hospitality tickets to a Premier League match of my choice which included lunch in the restaurant. There was a paragraph in the Daily Telegraph page for the competition about me which I still proudly have a copy of. (This was before the whole thing went online and didn't get any coverage in the newspaper).
