As well as browsing the articles (and the fascinating forums) I also enter the competitions. I may even have won one in the past. Do any of you enter regularly?

But a thought has struck me... the presentation packs on offer are from a few months back. So presumably those who collect modern GB will have either ordered or bought it anyway. Does that mean fewer entries or would you enter anyway and have a duplicate (or extra postage?)

And why is it 2 to 3 months after issue? Other magazines/websites (dare I mention AllABoutStamps) offer the current issue straightaway.

I do occasionally enter the competitions, though less so these days as before.

I have won quite a few presentation packs over the years and also a nice hobbyist LED 'daylight' lamp.

I don't collect modern British and as I am never really aware (unless I actually look it up) what the current commemorate sets are it never bothered me whether the packs were current or not. All the packs reside in a box, along with other bits and pieces, taking up space. I have really stopped doing competitions where packs are the prize as, frankly, I never look at them.

I just enter those competitions now where the prize is of interest to me.

Sorry kids, I'm in Canada, I can't. sad

Of course, in this day and age, I could just identify as being "in the UK"? wink

I do enter the competitions when i remember to come in and look. Won 2 presentations packs so far. I always like to do competitions as well as my stamps.

I do and have won quite a few about 5 to date and I always made a post of mine but not been in here as much as I would like, so my loss.

A little update... I've just found out that the Da Vinci set (issued by the PO in Feb) and featured in April's competition was won by someone I'd pointed in this direction - arriving in August.

I have won 4 Presentation Packs in the past, though not since E-Mail entries only?! I enter most months and occasionally send in a postcard for the 'Spot the Stamp' Competition.

Another update... I won the Royal Navy set from last autumn. Embarrassment of riches as I already had one that I won from All About Stamps....
