Comping (taking part in competition or contests) has been my great hobby besides blogging. Over the years i took this hobby more and more seriously. I read up about taking part in contest, buy books on How To Win Contest, etc. Initially winning a consolation also a big challenge for me. I always have phobia on contests which require slogans and taglines or creative signatures. Hwever, after doing much homework and read up a lot to polish this hobby, things became brighter and more fruitful over the years. No one says winning is easy and i also dont truly believe that it all depends on luck like i used to believe. Luck is important if the contest solely depends on it such as lucky dra but those which requires hardwork and thinking cap....you can conquer them if you put in effort and know how to win judges heart. But I must say the judges heart varies and part of it is luck to see which one of your creations capture the judges.
Here's what I win recently from the Ajax Faboloso contest. Actually I won 3rd prize early 2007 in the their Chinese New Year promotion contest (RM2000 SSF voucher to spend)and this time I won the Ceria Raya one (only consolation RM500 SSF voucher...both from same company and product. The contests were both held last year and it normally takes about few months to half a year to receive the result.
happy happy happy...having a big family with 4 kids, winning a contest can be very rewarding to ease the pocket a bit. Besides I really enjoy putting effort to try win the judges' heart.
Anyone out there have the same hobby in comping like me. Care to share your experience and winnings?
