    How do you know when you have won
    Hi

    I have entered quite a few competitions from this thread and I do get a lot of junk mail but I just wanted to know how easy or obvious it is when you win?

    I have not entered that much to make me think I should have won but I also wouldn't know what to look for if I do win.

    Thanks

    From personal experience most of the magazines will send you a letter informing you of the win. If it's a cash win they'll include a cheque; if it's something else they'll tend to give the details of whichever PR company is handling the prize.
    2017 Wins: Chocolate & Love Bar, Blair Witch DVD, Tatty Devine Earrings, Signed Mariella Frostrup Book, Rose Tremain's Gustav Sonata, Bottle of Black Cow Vodka, Apple Tree Yard DVD, Murder at the Manor, Jordans Superberry Granola, Stabilo Pens & £41.60.

    Does anyone have Crosswords Collection Issue 10?
    Does anyone have the answer for issue 10 of Crosswords Collection, please? Due to needing to resubscribe, I missed out on issue 10 of this mag so I therefore cannot post the competition. It is open til 02/11. Please PM me if anyone has the answer and I will post it. Many thanks, and thanks to One-Eye for the pm of the answer for Issue 11. I now have Issue 12 onwards so I will post that one soon.
