TV competitionsTV competitions are a big pull and probably the most popular form of “comping” in the UK as the prizes are huge. The contests & prize draws are a massive part of many UK TV shows and the great thing is that entry is usually free if you go down the online route (texts and phone entries still tend to incur high charges).

So here at ITV competitions we bring you the best in internet and television competitions, although we primarily focus on the TV competitions as they offer the biggest & best prizes with the easiest method of entry. The only catch is that you need to watch the shows in order to get the question – but not to worry because we list them all here!

Why Do TV Shows Have Competitions?

Primarily TV competitions engage the viewer with the show, they encourage the viewer to partake in an action (phoning, texting or going online) and therefore that viewer becomes more connected with the TV show or series. Viewer contests draw the viewer in and remind them that they are involved in the show & the show care about them. TV competitions can also provide some interesting content through out the show and can even be a source of revenue.

Do TV Competitions Make Money?

Good question. The answer likely depends on the competition and its purpose or objective. If the competition is run as a part of a high level marketing & engagement campaign it may well not make money; it is deemed to be a marketing cost.  These are often more involved than traditional multiple choice entry and operate over a much longer timespan.

There are also the competitions which do make money. High fees for phone calls and texts are the traditional route, however dont think for one minute the entire fee goes to the television company; nope there are many charges involved in operating these telephone lines by companies such as Callagenix. Free entry online is often subsidised by advertising, data and “CPA” style offers…the more people they can get on these offers, the more money they make.

So the answer is; yes & no! Either way (so long as the entry cost to you is free) you may aswel enter all the TV competitions and be in with a chance of winning; nothing to loose & everything to gain!

What Sort Of Prizes Do TV Competitions Offer?

Anything & everything is the answer to that! The big ones, announced durning the TV shows can range from a few thousand pounds to over £100,000, often a mixture of cash and other prizes. eg an all-inclusive luxury holiday & £30,000 tax-free cash was a recent ITV competition (ITV generally offer the biggest & best prizes).

If a non-cash prize is offered this is often sponsored by the prize itself eg Volkswagon will donate a vehicle in return for the massive amounts of publicity it receives for being featured on the TV show time & time again.

It’s a “win win win” scenario for all involved; the TV show, the sponsor & YOU all come out on top.

What Are The Best TV Competitions?

Any competition on itv is generally really good along with a couple on Sky and Channel 5 (Gadget Geeks & The Gadget Show – although they do not have a free online entry method).

  • Daybreak competition – on every morning week-days with massive prizes (same comp as Lorraine)
  • This Morning competition – on every morning week-days & some weekends with massive prizes
  • Loose Women competition – mid-monrning/lunch show wiht massive prizes
  • Dickinsons Real deal competition – an afternoon programme with several smaller prizes every day

The above TV competitions are pretty regular, others include Secret Dealers, Lets Do Lunch, X Factor, Britains Got Talent, Take Me Out, The Cube, Who Wants To Be A Millionaire and many more. Keep your eyes peeled!
