Sample Answer of You Have Participated in a Competition and You Have Won the Prize
Dear Sir or Madam,
I am writing to you to let you know that I took part in a creative writing competition, which had been organised for 30th April 2021. I am coming off flying colours. However, I am surprised that the award in the form of a gift has not been received by me yet? Although I got an appreciation letter; but, still there is no more information about the gift. Let me tell you that it was a creative writing competition, which was designed for over 25 years old. Each participant had to write more than 250 words on the essay ‘Handsome is that handsome does. Interestingly, there was a negative marking for overcutting.
To be honest, it was marvellous to get a prize in the form of a book, particularly for the bibliophiles. As it had been announced that a winner can take any book as a gift from Universal Book Store. So, I was bewitched at the thought of taking any novel of ‘Robert Browning’, who had always been one of my favourite authors or dramatists.
Would you be kind enough to let me know that how long will it take for the delivery of that book? It had almost one week passed and I didn’t get it. Could you make it confirm when I would be able to get it? As I would be away from home for one week. So, kindly do let me know prior to 15th April 2021.
I look forward to hearing from you at your earliest convenience.
