I won $100 with a major mag, writing advice one time,back in 1994.
I have also won two handbags.
And that's about it....So better than 'nothing', some people don't even get a look in. They try and try and try....nothing! poor things. :(
I've hot the jackpot a couple of times, but the pot was relatively small both times. Once, I won a hand-drawn image from a comic artist, and once I won an office-wide bingo. That was pretty cool, because it was $400 bucks.
Yes, just last year! I entered a Facebook competition to see who could drum up the most likes for the Scenic Rim Robotic Dairy. I won and got to take a group of friends to the dairy for a tour and a BBQ lunch with Farmer Gregie. We had a fantastic day on the farm, in fact I didn't want to return to Brisbane EVER!
I havenít won anything major, but while woking at DJís, in Sydney, in the middle 60ís, I won a small bag of cosmetics, & when I was working in an office in 1975 with a pharmaceutical firm, I won a beautiful Ďgoldí box of Revlon cosmetics. I still have the (empty) box! The other 3 woman in the office won a bra each! The competition was from the Australian Womanís Weekly. Iíve also won movie double passes, 1 of them was to see ĎAmyí, which I sent to a daughter & her partner in Melbourne. I have also won pieces of clothing. I once bought 3 tickets in an art gallery raffle, & won the prize of a Reg Mombassa t-shirt, DVD & a book about his art. Iíve now forgotten what else Iíve won, because I didnít keep a list! A few years ago, a friend won a t.v. so big, they couldnít get it up the stairs of their house, so she had to leave it down stairs in the family room, until they sold it!
