    entry number
    Every competition has different terms and conditions limiting the number of entries. Some are strictly one entry only while some (like the ITV competitions) can upwards of 40 entries.

    I did not realise this was not the place & given the short times left a repost seemed as well.
    Hope that is OK.

    Do we know if the postals from the Express can go AIOE? The ones that go to the same address (same PO Box too)

    PO Box 12581
    Sutton Coldfield
    B73 9BX

    If you've had a definite "no" then that's fine but otherwise I could email and ask them.

    Thanks so much for all your work

    The Chanel 5 comp address - p.o.Box 7557, Derby, DE1 0NP.
    Can comps go all in one envelope or do they all have to be addressed separately?
    I've tried to look it up on Chanel 5's website but it is a bit pants.
    thanks all.

    Silly Question :

    If a competition states to send in a sealed envelope - should the note still be on a postcard inside said envelope?

    Thanks

    I didn't realise i could do AIOE with Data comps which is great. Can i just put several papers with my details and the name of the comp in to one envelope, or do people put postcards in??

    Also do you just put the main address on the envelope?

    thanks in advance and thank you for contributing
