So I thought the fairest way of doing it would be to get you all to suggest what would be a good competition - just to be fair about this. :)
What's on offer
- a free pair of Leisure Select tickets on Eurostar to Brussels - travelling from and returning to St Pancras, Ebbsfleet or Ashford (assuming the train you want to travel on stops at either Ebbsfleet or Ashford. You have to make your own way to and from one of these stations.
- The break can last as long as you like but has to be taken before the end of November
- How you get about in Brussels and where you go is entirely up to you!
What the competition needs to involve
Here are my initial thoughts - but I'd love to hear yours as well.
- The competition will run this month - probably starting next week.
- It has to be a competition! Simply put there has to be something about it which enables me to differentiate between entries
- The theme of the competition needs to be something to do with how a little break makes a big difference
- Since this is an art blog it would be very appropriate to have an element of art involved!
- Post your entry on your blog and then leave a link to it in a comment on this blog
- The people who arranged my trip and who are offering these tickets will shortlist the five most amazing/funniest/brilliant responses.
- I then get to pick the final winner - and the winner gets the free trip to Brussels!
I make use of painting to render thoughts visible"It also seems kind of appropriate to have people try out the surrealist style while this month's poll about which art style you use is running.
What's your idea? Now over to you and your creative juices. What do you think would be a good idea for a competition which fits with the basics. No prizes for this I'm afraid other than the kudos!
Anybody can suggest how the competition might run - and I can't wait to hear your ideas!
I'll round ideas up at the end of Monday and see what everybody has come up with! I reserve the right to think my idea is still best! :D (You can tell I'm quite taken with it can't you?)
Do let me know also what you think of my idea as well - and feel free to shoot it down if you've think you've got a better one!
