Let me introduce myself. My name is Steve Middleton, and I have been comping for over 40 years. I have won thousands of prizes over the years, including once-in-a-lifetime experiences like a Round the World trip and a holiday in Las Vegas with $10,000 to spend.

Since I took over as Editor back in 2006, I’ve used my own experience to ensure that Compers News remains an indispensable guide for anyone who wants to enter competitions and win prizes.

I have a genuine love of the hobby, and the unrivalled comping know-how of me and my Expert Team helps to give Compers News its unique edge and you the best chance of winning. Nothing gives me greater pleasure than seeing Compers News members win some truly great prizes!

Hi I am Jo and I admit I am totally obsessed with comping, having been doing it for 25 years! It’s a hobby I’ve been able to fit in around my work and home life, and my friends & family have been more than happy to benefit from some fantastic prizes... from the ‘money can’t buy’ film premieres, some amazing holidays – New York, St Lucia and Paris, to name but a few, down to the smaller prizes like DVD’s & shopping vouchers which are always very welcome & still just as exciting to win! It’s hard to pick a favourite from all the wins, but the Morrisons/Breakfast at Tiffanys competition would take some beating! We were flown out to New York for 4 nights, treated to breakfast at Gordon Ramsays, then whisked off to Tiffanys and handed a gift card for $10,000...every girl’s dream!

Comping is constantly evolving, with new methods of entry appearing all the time. I love to try and keep up to date with the new apps and social media channels and you will be able to find me on Compers News Facebook page & Twitter account.

As a Compers News columnist, I endeavour to represent the comper in fighting for honesty, transparency and fairness in all competitions and prize draws and to ensure winners are chosen fairly and notified promptly.

So, how can I help you? Are you struggling to find out who won a competition, or if winners have even been contacted? Has your prize disappeared into a black hole? You can get in touch with me by post, email or via Chatterbox. I will make enquiries on behalf of Compers News and keep you updated with the progress made.

Hi, I am Di Coke and I'm a comper! It might sound like I'm battling an addiction, but I can't think of a better addiction to have. Over twenty years my hobby has resulted in £200,000 of prizes. I've travelled the world for free - from Brazil and New Zealand to Japan and New York. I've won a VW Beetle, walked the red carpet at the BAFTAs and funded my wedding with a £7,500 cash win. I've yet to win a house - but I'm trying!
