Well, this has taken me a little longer to post than I anticipated. I mean, it’s not everyday that you get to give away a 5* break to Paris for two with £500 spending money now is it? (thank you Vaseline!)
It quickly became apparent from an impromptu straw poll on Twitter that you guys wanted a competition that required a little more effort than a couple of clicks with your mouse and I agree. So, without further ado… read on to find out what you have to do for a chance at winning this fantastic prize!
Right then my lovelies…
I want you to create an artistic representation of Paris.
The catch? You have to use the medium of BEAUTY to create your masterpiece.
Now, this doesn’t mean that you have to do a makeup look or paint your face (although you absolutely can). You could draw on paper with cosmetics, make a collage from beauty adverts/product packaging, sculpt a statue out of false eyelashes – the choice is yours BUT there must be a clear link between three things: BEAUTY, PARIS and ART.
Clear as mud?
Once you have created your BEAUTIFUL PARIS – I want to see it!
You can upload a photograph to Flickr, email it to me, post it on your blog (if you have one) and link me to it in the comments, or shout at me on twitter – I don’t mind how you show me, but I need to be able to SEE IT! I will create a gallery of all the entries that will be viewable by everyone at the close of the competition (you must be OK with this). I will update this post with the names (twitter/facebook handles) of everyone whose entries I have received, this way – you can be sure that I have seen your entry.
As for choosing a winner? Well, that comes down to me. I will simply choose my favourite. I’m not gonna cop out with a public vote/popularity contest and I’m hoping that there will be one STANDOUT entry so I don’t lose sleep over it.
Does this sound good? Any concerns or questions?
The competition will go live tonight from midnight and is only open to UK participants.
