Changes to Competition Listings and Country Filter

Starting March 30, 2019, new competitions listed on Competition Info must be competitions that Nigerians living in Nigeria are eligible to apply for. This is part of the realignment strategy with our parent brand Naijabranch which aims to provide high quality Nigerian-themed products.

The Country (of Residence) filter will no longer be available from March 30, 2019. For registered users, personalised results will no longer be based on your country of residence (for non-Nigerian residents).

The Country (of Residence) filter will be replaced with the (Host) Country filter. This means you will still be able to carry out searches based on the Competition Host Country.
