Reminder: Christmas Competition – deadline Monday

To celebrate and get in the mood for the festive season I thought that we could have a writing competition.  As many of you (on average at least 4,500 members visit the Lib Dem Voice site every day) write articles, read them or comment I propose a Christmas Article Competition.

The proposed Competition Rules are:

  • An Article should not be more than 550 words;
  • The article in each of the specified areas will be jointly judged by representatives identified as experts in that area by Lib Dem Voice and Lib Dem editors;
  • The starting date for the competition starts as of 28th November to 17th December;
  • The title of your article for the competition should start with the words “Competition: … followed by the title of your article”

Basic criteria when assessing each article will be:

  • The originality of the article;
  • That the article is within the stipulated maximise length required (550 words);
  • Generally, how well has the article presented its argument on the subject matter;
  • We will only accept one submission for each subject area per person (as stated below);

The article must relate to one of the following areas:

  1. How can the Lib Dems further promote their Green policies;
  2. How do you propose that the Lib Dem get their message across in mass media;
  3. What are the three main messages that the Lib Dems must get across for the local elections in May 2019;
  4. How would you go about raising funds for your local party;
  5. Why be a Liberal Democrat?
  6. How can we reduce inequality?
  7. Increasingly we have a divided country, what can the Liberal Democrats do to promote more tolerance in society?

The winner will be announced before Christmas and the winning author of the article will receive a small Christmas hamper.

So good luck.

  • How do I send it, please? I tried to send it by pasting into Comment box, and got told it was too long. It is some words short of the stipulated 550, so it must suppose it’s just a normal Comment. Therefore I must ask you to reply very quickly, since this is the last day for entries: HOW do I send it to the Competition? I can find no such instruction in the page of specification. Sorry to be so dim and tiresome!
