Flash Text Competition!

Normally I don't grab a copy of The London Paper from the free-paper-guy on the way home (I normally pass him and grab London Lite from the guy further down the street), but today I did.

And a good job too or I would have missed this great little comp (only costs a text message +£1).

The comp is run by The London Paper, Orange Broadband Prize for Fiction and PulpNet. What you need to do is:
  1. write a 100 word flash/story on the theme of relationships (whether it be work, home or play)
  2. enter your story into a text message on your phone (no more than 450 characters including spaces)
  3. text it to 88855 putting STORY as the first word

The combined cost of text entries, sent in more than one part, will not exceed £1, plus your standard network rates per message.

There will be two winners - one will be selected in an online reader poll.

Each of the winners will get

  • a pair of tickets to the Orange awards on 6 June
  • a set of Orange shortlisted books
  • a brand new phone
  • a year's free Orange broadband worth £200

Runners up will also win prizes.

Full terms and conditions are online at thelondonpaper.com

If you can bear another £1 being added to your mobile phone bill give it a go!
