  • For a social media only competition, we:
    • Highlight the end date of the competition.
    • Once the winners are picked, we will then contact them on the platform that they entered on - via Instagram DM or tagging them in the comments.
    • We always create a winners post with every winner's name on it and go live with it on the relevant social platform.
