So, I was thinking how nice it would be to have a book trailer for Dear Dylan...
And I was also thinking how nice it would be to run another competition for readers...

And then I had a light-bulb moment and thought, why don't I have a competition to find the official Dear Dylan book trailer? After all, who better to capture the heart of a book on film than someone who has read it, feels passionately about it, and wants to create their own, visual interpretation of it?

I've run a lot of competitions over the years but none have got me this excited.

So here's the fun LARGE PRINT STUFF before I get on to the official Terms and Conditions.

  • Entrants must be aged 18 or under
  • Trailers must be between 60 and 90 seconds long
  • Entries should be sent to: siobhancurham[AT]yahoo[DOT]co[DOT]uk by Monday 9th July 2012
  • The winning entry will become the OFFICIAL DEAR DYLAN BOOK TRAILER and will be used by myself and my publisher, Electric Monkey to promote the book
  • The winner will also receive a £1oo Amazon voucher and a signed copy of Dear Dylan
  • The two runners up will each receive a £25 Amazon voucher and a signed copy of the book

Fancy making the official Dear Dylan trailer?

  1. Awesome, heartfelt story with an unusual and compelling structure. Really loved and believed Georgie's voice the most. Can't wait to read Curham's next effort!
