    Name this comp 12th Mar 17 at 5:57 PM
    I'm trying to remember who was doing this comp. I remember writing a poem for it.
    An appliance company that gives 'fair' finance options, or it could have been a loan company. I think the prize was a washing machine, or an appliance of some kind. I think it was entered via their own website.

    Ringing any bells? It's driving me bonkers trying to remember/find it.

    It might not have been a washing machine, but it was definitely from a company who claimed to give customers a fair rate of loan for the appliances they supplied. I think the whole idea of the company was appliances bought on credit.

    I saw a winners page yesterday for a comp the short story winners got £1000 prize and the poetry winners got £300 prize.

    I am sure the company was Oxy something.

    Sorry I can't be of more help, I did try to search my history but had deleted it
