    I might not win big but atleast I know I've done it all on my own steam with my own efforts, ethically.

    I'm fed up of seeing fake photo entries, just seen pumpkin carving competition with absolutely ridiculous entries, clearly ripped off, and if the winner carved that pumpkin themselves , recently , I will eat my computer.

    Not a dickybird since last advent! Truth be told I've been comping for 4 straight years now and I've only ever won little things here and there; never anything major. Keeping at it, though! Good luck to all of you who are also stuck in a dry spell!

    It's the same for me. I've won NOTHING this year. Not a thing. Still ploughing on, though!

    Same here, I haven't had a win since July 2017

    Compared to 2013 when I did only marginally more entries than currently and then I was having 3 or 4 (or more sometimes) wins per month of varying values.
    Those who bring sunshine into the lives of others cannot keep it from themselves.

    I haven't won anything for a very long time. I did change my email about a year ago and it hasn't made a difference.

    When I started 5 years ago I got one good win a month. But then comping got extremely popular and now a small win is hard to get.
