I received this email on the 1st of March:

"You recently entered to win a £100 Winning Moves voucher on day 32 of the Mirror Double Win Raffle. I am very pleased to let you know that your email was drawn as the winner. Congratulations!

Please can you confirm receipt of this email no later than Friday 3rd March. I will then send your details to the agency who will be in touch regarding next steps. Failure to respond by 3rd March will result in forfeiture of the prize."

I responded the same day in the evening and then heard nothing. So, I emailed again on the 6th of March just to double check that she got my first email ok and again I've got radio silence.

Shall I just keep waiting? Has anyone else won with The Mirror before and had a similar experience? 

- Just editing this to update.

I had an email from Winning Moves today about the prize so I'm very grateful to finally hear back.
Thanks to everyone who posts competitions, you are wonderful gems 
:D

    I'd give it a bit more time personally. She could have passed your details onto the prize fulfiller and she's waiting for them to message you, or she is in the process of doing so. 

    Some people just aren't very good at email management and take a while to come back. She could also be waiting for a response from someone else before coming back to you. Maybe give it a week or so to see whether she or the prize fulfiller reach out.

    I know its anxious times waiting for the prize but you have proof that you've responded on time.

    Thanks, I didn't think about that. I've been comping for years and either their communication is timely or a prize turns up unannounced so this is a new one for me  :D
