Any excuse for a party!

As some of you will know, a few months ago Prizeology moved into new premises. We unpacked our boxes, lined up our pens neatly and got on with the job of sourcing prizes, crafting terms and conditions, and dispensing compliance advice on all things prize promotional (see our home page for our full range of services – yes, that’s a shameless plug). And then a few weeks later it occurred to us. We’d been so busy pushing back the boundaries of promotional marketing that we’d forgotten to stop and celebrate the move. So we had a party!

Our new accommodation is in a great building (it’s a former benefits office, but you’d never know it) with great facilities and a particularly great roof-top terrace, so we had the party here and invited all the lovely new people we’ve met who also have offices in the building, a rather random collection of old friends and, of course, our nearest and dearest.

Now I’ve done some event-organising in my time and I definitely know how to throw a party. Obviously there was fantastic food and drink, there was cool music (actually, in the interests of full disclosure, there wasn’t any music due to what you might call a technical hitch, but there was a lot of chat to make up for it) and obviously there was interactive entertainment.

The very creative (and fabulously mad) Miss Ballooniverse gave each guest their very own piece of balloon art to wear with pride and a cash grabber game brought out everyone’s competitive edge.

As you would expect, we had some very good prizes (thank you Red Letter Days), but I must confess I hadn’t realised quite how determined some of my friends can be (that’s you, Lucy!).

Anyway, it was a very enjoyable evening and the photos taken by the talented Yolande devries are fabulous, so I’ve decided to post a few of them, really so that I and my fellow Prizeologists can perk ourselves up at any time by reliving the fun all over again.

Postal entries unfairly excluded from ITV promotions

Postal entries unfairly excluded from ITV promotions: Avid readers of the Prizeologist blog may remember that back in August this year we posted that ITV had gone to the broadcasting regulator Ofcom, head bowed and cap in hand, to confess that a number of its on-air competitions had not been run fairly. Ofcom has now […]


Scam alert: Cadbury chocolate hamper

Anyone out there who likes chocolate? Thought so. Anyone out there out who would like to win a hamper stuffed full of slabs of Dairy Milk, piles of Chocolate Buttons and handfuls of Curly Wurlys? Yes, thought so too, but if you do, don’t enter a prize draw on the Cadbury Reward Facebook page, because […]


Running a prize promotion on Facebook

It’s been a while since I’ve talked about how to running a prize promotion on Facebook  but it’s a topic worth revisiting, partly because the rules are updated from time to time, and partly because those rules mean it’s not quite as easy as you might think to use the social media platform as a […]
