Almost every contest asks me to solve the captcha. It either disappears everytime I click on the correct image or it locks me out saying my computer or network may be sending automated queries. I can't even enter contests anymore if they have a captcha. It automatically locks me out. I'm using Chrome, but i've tried explorer,etc with same results. I'm getting a tech guy to look at my computer tomorrow because this has been a problem for months and somethings gotta be wrong.

try clearing your cache, sometimes helps

I'm trying to find more creative contests for a friend's daughter. Those would include artwork and writing. Any pointers on where to look?

I think there's a Crayola one that involves thanking teachers and drawing little "thank you" cards. Might be worth a shot.
Wishing everyone a lucky 2018!

I just checked my spreadsheets from the last two years when I started, and I’ve entered about 150 less contests this year. Is it just me? Have I slowed down or have the contests?
I probably enter 150 every day... the first two wins for jan were big ones, rockstar ps4 and a mirrorless camera from a blogger
I had my twitter account banned because of automated tweeting (from rafflecopter and such) so I rarely tweet now, just do any free daily stuff if its on the entry form (i love gleam for that)
most of my stuff is daily that I enter, about 20 min a day while I wake up and have my coffee before I go to work
currrently waiting on the stuff my son won from the trojan contest, (10 boxes and the $500 gift card)
I do the odd one times but only if I'm seriously bored
winner from CasuGuru (toilet) and RockstarEnergy, Trojan

I find being logged into my gmail account 1st before I enter any contests helps with the captcha, but I have never had as big a problem as you are having.

My friend's daughter is 20 years old. Thanks for the thought. Most of the creative ones I've found online have entrance fees. They range from about $20 to $50. But long ago when I used to enter by mail there were a lot of creative contests without fees. I wonder where those all went?

Does anyone else request daily NPN codes from Brisk? I always wonder if I'm the only one "bugging" the rep at the contest company.

I do during the week. Weekends are a bit harder and I don't always get one sent in.

Has anyone submitted and received an NPE for this contest yet? 2018-08-31-bring-your-toyota-home-win-a ... n-2197850/
Sent two requests for NPEs 1st wk of June, two 2nd wk of June, never rec'd anything. Unlike last year, when I requested 12 NPEs, rec'd 10. Same rules as last year. Submitted reqs exactly the same way this year as last: unlined paper, printed instead of written, original 50+ word essay each time. Decided not to waste any more stamps on this one. Just wondering, has anyone contacted Toyota Canada re this? Either directly or through social media? If no one receiving NPEs, have to think they would want to know contest organizer not following rules. And yes, I was OP of this contest!
