I'm usually pretty organised with regards to my comping (and not with any other aspect of my life), so if I see a competition that I really want to enter and a creative answer doesn't automatically pop into my head, I make sure I make a reminder note in my diary a day or two before it closes. So when these deadline extension announcements pop up for a competition I've entered on time, I'm often slightly annoyed (only slightly).
So what happened next? Yes, I was one of the lucky winners (there were 5). I was extremely excited to have won as the products in the prize pack were ones I actually purchase regularly, but I couldn't help but feel a little guilty.
So does anyone else feel a little peeved when competition deadlines are extended? Would you be annoyed to find out that someone ,who entered a competition during the deadline extension period, was announced as a winner? Well after my experience I don't think I will be feeling annoyed the next time I see an extended deadline announcement - even if I have already entered on time!
