I’m not sure if anyone else has noticed, but I check the winners list regularly here on MoMs and I have to say how upsetting and disappointing it is! Why? Well, out of 24 competitions and 107 winners,Ma total of 4 winners are from Tasmania :( Why does the mainland have such a monopoly on prize pools? I realise there’s a population disparity between states, but why does this mean most winners are from Victoria and New South Wales? It is quickly becoming quite disparaging to me. I have entered comps on here and put a Victorian address and have won! But I shouldn’t have to move to be a winner

  • Where do you find the Winners site on here as I have No idea where it is


  • Cant say I have look at where the winners are from


  • I get all that, some comps have been for NSW only and the population difference. But still, it seems to be unbelievably biased to Eastern states winners. I sometimes wonder if it’s because of the distance…..it costs more to ship things here. I just don’t know but it’s discouraging


  • I think it is the same with many competitions N.S,W and VIC seem to have lots of winners. WA is a large state compared to TAS but still on the low side. Yes some comps have been for certain areas, so some would not enter and depending upon what you are interested in would mean what you enter. I use to enter competitions in magazines and have ended up with prizes I did not want. One Facebook there seems to be the same people winning competitions, that would be more upsetting to me. Then seeing them selling the prize on another page.


  • I have never looked either. There must be many entries for competitions. The competitions and prizes are so generous. I enjoy entering, regardless of winning. Thanks to the MOM’s Team! :)

    • Thanks to the generosity of the companies too.


  • I’ve never bothered to look at this. It probably reflects (in part) the proportion of people entering from each state. Also, some prizes recently have been for Sydny residents, and that would bias an analysis like this.
