Win 1 Of 5 Copies Of The Sea And Us is a competition by Good Reading Magazine and has a prize pool of $150 for 5 prizes. The prize pool is low. I does not cost anything to participate. Win one of five copies of The Sea and Us by Catherine de Saint Phalle, valued at $29.99 each. From the Stella shortlisted author of Poum and Alexandre, this is a heartwarming novel about longing, absence and the people we unexpectedly come to love. After many years spent living in Seoul, a young man called Harold drifts back to Australia and rents a room above a fish and chip shop called The Sea & Us. Who he meets and what he experiences there propels him to question his own yearnings and failings, and to fight for meaning and a sense of place that can only be reached by facing what is lost. By turns, electric, tender, and hopeful, The Sea & Us is a gem of literary imagination. Catherine de Saint Phalle brilliantly captures disparate characters and their common human desire for community and connection. Long after the last page closes, ‘we can hear the bell tinkle. Someone wants some fish and chips.’ Quite well known company that we have reviewed before.

Tips for joining a Words or less Competition

Check out the overview of contest types to learn more on how to enter and find similar contests. Competitions where your entry needs to be motivated with a short text, often 25 words or less or 100 words or less in length. The winner of the competition is determined by a jury which is reviewing all words-or-less entries and deciding on the best or most original contribution. Words or less competitions are considered games of skill where your win is not based on chance but on the skill that you demonstrate. Often words or less competitions give you somewhat higher odds than other competitions such as straight lucky draws. In some ways these words or less competitions are quite similar to general creative competitions but you need to be concise which is a challenge for some. Having said that there are also words or less comps where the word limit is one thousand which makes that a different contest all together. Most WOL are 25 words though. For more on the concept of WOL competitions and how to win them see our blogs words or less competitions in Australia and How to win Words-Or-Less Comps . Try to be creative or funny in your answer. Also if possible mention the product or brand so you have a higher chance of your answer being selected by the jury. And absolutely make sure to stick to the word limit. If it says "25 words or less" they will disqualify you if you do 26 words or more. Some people enter quickly lots and lots of words or less competitions to increase their chances of winning. In principle, this is a good approach. Usually words or less challenges have less participants because some people just cannot overcome the fear of blank paper. It is also true that for quite a few words or less competitions you can assume that the winner is almost determined by chance. If they have one thousand WOL entries it is very difficult for a jury to go through all of them. So although not quite right, in many cases the jury will look at some random selection of entries a bit closer and determine the winner from them. Nevertheless, you must put in some effort with your answer to have a chance. Even if the jury does not read all entries they will never award the prize to a contribution that is just lousy. So find a middle way between making good WOL entries and entering lots and lots of them! One thing you can actually do to make your participations easier is to recycle your answers. A good motivation to win a KitchenAid may also work for a competition for a Breville food processor!
