    I will try my best this year to complete this challenge.
    So my question is what is the difference between a click to win and a daily comp?

    I am entering the Grazia daily comps ( do I class this as a click to win or daily.

    Many thanks for whoever answers my query.

    daily comps are comps you can enter everyday but are on different formats and platforms

    OK after having a look about this is the Grazia C2W

    https://winit.graziadaily.co.uk/

    There is also a Grazia Daily Competition which I would say would count as a Web Competition

    Happy New Year everyone.

    Congrats Indie on being the first member to have a win.

    I'm going to have to come up with some kind of system as I'm getting all confused keeping track when it comes to the 1000 entries. I've posted a competition beginning with the letter E as part of my challenge so I've crossed that off today only 107 more challenges still to do.

    Comps done today:
    Daily: 26
    MD: 154
    RC: 26
    Gleam: 28
    Simply Media C2W: 172
    Bauer Media C2W: 180
    Email: 1
    Website: 47

    Fingers crossed more of us are posting about wins tomorrow. Good luck everyone.

    I have just found a DM on Twitter informing me I was a winner on one of the Pet Munchies Advent Calendar Competitions.

    Although I have just read it, it was sent on the 31st December so it won't count towards this years challenge

    My ladies will be thrilled though

    does anyone remember the imaginary picnic we were all adding wins to in last years challenge? well someone tasked me with writing a poem! lmao.... here you are! it rubbish but i did it!!!

    so mansey joined a band of comping crazy fools
    to compete in a challenge with newts golden rules
    as a picnic is laid out with all the goods that we won
    i hope you are hungry and ready for fun

    bluesooz's picnic basket was the perfect receptacle
    the vicar can look, its all very respectable
    however we wish someone had won a blanket
    to place all our food for the following banquet

    marg and mummy2three started things well
    with jameson cans that tasted just swell
    onto the game, we all had a blast
    as benhams pass the pigs was quickly passed

    as ms dee whips out her binoculars quick
    gpark and aspella throws down balls for all to kick
    the ribena drink make the bug bites unpleasant
    no fear! bluesooz soon arrive with needed repellent

    jojo brings out some malteaser spread
    what do we eat it on? no one won any bread!
    nelie's coconut water tasted like pee
    almost as bad as donny's fruity green tea!

    we tried to be good with pate-cio's healthy snacks
    but lucinad had spicy pork scratchings, 24 packs!
    dormouse's oasis was enjoyed from ms dees thermal glass
    lucinads toys help the last few hours pass

    so as the picnic came to an end, emmaaar cracked open her fizz
    and i started to wonder... ember biltong? aspella? whats this?
    and we all enjoyed benhams doritos of course
    washed down by blues cider with little remorse!

    i am not a poet and i have thrown this together tonight watching tv!
    hope youve enjoyed it lol

    Would anyone like to put their 1000 numbers in their signature?

    I was thinking if I could see at a glance how others were doing it might encourage me/you to do more.

    And a bit of friendly competition is always good

    Great poem lucinad

    I think I would forget to update my signature. It is bad enough trying to remember the main list.

    When I did the mag daily competitions yesterday, I counted each time I entered, so for example if the prize was on Celebs now, life death prizes, WOTV, Woman, Woman's Own and Womans Weekly, I counted 6, although there is only one prize.

    I may have done it wrong though.

    i have added them separately (and everyone knows i am ALWAYS correct!) if the same prize is on all of them i count each of them from each site not just once
