Competition: Rough Guides Book Giveaway!

[ 19 ] May 2, 2011 |


Those of you who keep an eye on events here at The Active Photographer will no doubt have seen that I recently reviewed a rather good book – The Rough Guide To Camping In Britain. If you haven’t seen it yet, take a look here.

Now then, thanks to those lovely people at Rough Guides, I have a copy of this book (worth £16.99) to give away to the crafty so-and-so who can come up with the best caption to the following picture.

All you have to do is put your suggestion in the comments section below this post and the winner will be announced in a couple of weeks’ time.

This competition runs from Monday 2nd May 2011 until 11:59pm (GMT) on Thursday 12th May 2011 – and is open to you all, regardless of where in the world you might be.

The official bit: Office Cat will be picking a winner and no amount of catnip will sway his decision, which is final. And don’t even think about asking him for an alternative prize, either, especially cash – he’ll just walk away and pretend to be sleeping (in my chair, no doubt!).

That said… Good luck, everyone!

    This telepathic shutter release needs a little more work.
