With just under three weeks to go until the main event, you still have time to create an entry for our Make A Ballycumber competition.

We are asking for the best creative interpretations of ‘Make A Ballycumber’ whether they be in woodwork, metalwork, sewing, knitting, cooking, painting or something else we haven’t even thought of! Bring your entries along to the Unconvention weekend where we hope to have a table full of handmade Ballycumber creations to entertain and enthrall us!

The winning entry (as decided by the judging panel on Saturday afternoon) will be presented with a prize at the end of the Saturday events so get creative and surprise us!

Competition Winner!

Congratulations by emilywjones on flickr

Congratulations to gingergeoff who made the closest guess for how many books I would have registered by the end of my birthday (8th July 2011). His guess of 254 books was only two away from the actual figure of 252, so very nearly spot on.

Geoff is the lucky winner of two free tickets for the Unconvention, which I am sure is a prize he will enjoy!!

The guesses ranged from 233 to a whopping 594, but special commiserations go to Heaven-Ali whose guess of 249 would have won had I not received three books for my birthday!!

If you’re still in the competition spirit, then visit our Competitions page for details of the Make A Ballycumber Competition which will be judged during the Unconvention weekend.

Competition ends soon…

This is the last call for entries for our free tickets competition. You have until the end of the day on Sunday 19th June to submit your entries, which must include your guess at how many books I will have registered by my birthday and details of how you’ve linked to the site.
