Thought it might be a good idea for a thread that shows you how the different websites or prize promoters etc usually let you know that you have won. Ill post the ones I know here so if there are anymore etc let me know and Ill update the original post. If its not a good idea Ill quite happily delete the thread but thought some people might find it useful and didnt think it had already been done. I dont know which ones you have to check the website for and dont know for ones I havent won through! Couldnt decide how to put them so have put them alphabetically by website/promoter
