I recently won tickets to The Fault in Our Stars along with the soundtrack and the book

There are free giveaway competitions running all the time. Have you ever participated and won anything? How did you enter and what did you win?

Always enter - last year I won a tonne of stuff - this year not so much...but you've got to be in it to win it...
I won a few movie tickets and tickets to events. I like entering in competitions as Lydia said, you never know you might win.
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. :(
It wasn't a competition per se, but I did win a Coldplay CD whenI called into a radio station.

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 think I won a raffle once or twice but nothing in a competition you send in for.

I no longer send in as gave up years ago on this type of thing.

i have a friend who enters so many, it must take up half her day.
I have however won tickets etc on radio shows

I have won a couple of books and 2 or 3 CDs in giveaway competitions.
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!
