Sample Answer

Dear Sir,

I am writing to inform you that I have recently won a prize for writing the best article published in your newspaper 21st March 2018.The prize for winning the best article competition was two airline tickets to Singapore along with a free 2 days 3 nights stay in a five star hotel. I was supposed to receive it  last week, but unfortunately that never happened.

The topic of my article was ’why it is important to save the mother earth’.I am a regular subscriber of your newspaper and keep participating in various competitions organised by your newspaper.

Furthermore, I tried to contact the customer care executive many times but no avail.This situation is causing me a great deal of inconvenience. I believe this matter deserves your urgent attention.Therefore, I request you to kindly look into the matter and resolve the issue.

Looking forward to getting positive response. (147 words)

Yours Faithfully,
