Writing Competition - March Winner
And the winner of the March round of the Chapel Baits' sponsored competition is
With forum members giving a split decision between Eddy Widdup's Trustworthy Liars and Sean Meeghan's River Fishing the Last Hurrah the result of the March round looked as if it might be a close one' and so it proved with the judges too. Both Sean and Eddy are previous winners of the competition and both had, once again, submitted highly enjoyable articles but a decision had to be made and in the end the judges went for the originality of Eddy's offering to give him two victories in a row - the boy could be on for a hat-trick if he gets his pen out soon...
The April competition is currently underway and all entries submitted before 30 April 2012 will be considered. To date we have had no April entries submitted, unusual given the good response in previous months, but it could mean an easy victory for someone! Don't worry if you have not written before; if need be our editorial team will help to knock it into shape for you.
A reminder that the competition runs from through to May 2012 inclusive, is open to anyone, irrespective of whether or not they have had features published on FishingMagic before; all we ask is that entrants are not regular writing contributors to the national angling media.
Features may be on any angling topic, fiction or non-fiction, humorous or serious, technical or story-based and on any angling discipline: coarse, sea or game.
Submissions should ideally be from 1,000 to 2,500 words in length and supplied as a Word document accompanied (if relevant) by four to eight JPG images to illustrate the words. It is hoped that grammar, spelling and punctuation will be of a reasonable standard but all will be corrected, if required, prior to publication on the site.
There is no limit to the number of features which entrants may submit per month and all features deemed by the FishingMagic Editor to be of an appropriate standard will be published in full.
At the end of each month FishingMagic readers will be invited to vote and comment on all of the entries and a monthly winner will be selected by the FishingMagic Editor, whose decision is final.
Each monthly winner will receive a bait pack worth £46 from Chapel Baits which will include: soft hookbaits, groundbait, dumbells and glugs from their extensive range.
At the end of the competition all monthly winners will go into a final judging and the overall winner will win a 12 month sponsorship by Chapel Baits (Full terms and conditions to be advised separately).
Submissions should be sent via e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org
