It’s safe to say that we’ve been a little bit out of the loop in recent months when it comes down to comping. Some might say we’ve been out of the loop for a tad longer, but we do try and keep an eye on what’s going on. The more dedicated among you may have […]
The Loquax Blog
Our blog is where we get to write about the world of competitions, tell you our views about comping, offer help to promoters and keep you up to date with what's happening at Loquax. We'll try and share one or two fun things with you as well. You're welcome to comment on any of the articles!
In recent times we've looked at Automated Competition Entry Services that are swamping online competitions with entries! We've been investigating this issue and have useful information for promoters, including emails to look out for and how to avoid giving prizes to people who don't even visit their site.
We've also been looking at comping on both Facebook and Twitter and have blogged about FB cheats and also written a quick guide to Twitter comps. Don't forget to follow Loquax on both Facebook and Twitter
In case you hadn’t realised, Loquax runs the giveaway site over at www.prizedraws.co.uk. We set it up a couple of years ago as a fun giveaway site. Our aim was to simply offer you guys the chance to win some slightly different prizes plus it gave us a chance to plug some of other sites […]

Now we’ve used the phrase since we started 18 years ago to describe the page where you can search competitions by prize type… but that doesn’t help the searching visitors. What they are looking for is information because […]
It’s almost that most wonderful time of the year when advent competitions appear from every where. As we mentioned a few weeks back advent comps seem to have taken on a whole new meaning with anything festive and daily entry falling under the advent banner. Anyway the real things will start on the 1st December […]
It seems an age ago since the Loquax Team embarked on revamping the way your forum posts appeared as competition listings. What started out as a “shouldn’t take too long job” has taken a little bit longer than anticipated. However we hope you think it’s been worthwhile and thank you for being patient. With the […]
Did you know that last year we didn’t write about advent competitions? Well we didn’t – and so to make up for it we’re unleashing an earlier than usual post about that most wonderful time of the year. We don’t know when it happened but the term “advent” in the comping world has changed meaning […]
The ‘welly good’ sausage makers at debbie&andrew’s are on a Quest for the Best in sausages. They dropped us a line with the details and we thought we’d share them with you. In a ‘Make My Sausage’ challenge, the team at debbie&andrew’s are asking sausage fans to suggest what favourite flavours and ingredients they would […]
Walkers Crisps do love their big competitions and to celebrate their latest promotion they have £100,000 to be won. You may have seen the advert already for this particular giveaway as it features Gary Lineker alongside Black Lace, who are singing Agadoo! Gary obviously isn’t too impressed at this and soon Black Lace, like their […]
