No great rules. Too many restrictions always inspire rebellion as Blyton would show.
So in the true Blyton spirit, we have kept the rules very very simple. Just send you entries before midnight (IST) on March 20, 2011.
Make sure they are your own, not plagiarised. Remember it is the experience that counts; we are not testing your writing skills here.
You can use any medium to express your Blyton love. Colours, visuals, words. Let your imagination run wild.
If you are an INDIAreads employee (or family member of an INDIAreads employee) or on our Review panel (or family member of our review panel) you cannot participate in the contest. Everyone else can. Age no bar, sex no bar, profession no bar. Just makes sure you are staying within India.
You can leave your entries as comments to this post, paste them on the INDIAreads facebook page or simply send them via email to email@example.com
Do send us your full name and email id.
Names of the winners will be announced on March 22, 2011. The winners will be sent a list of Blyton titles that they can choose from.
That’s it! Like we said, we are keeping it simple in the true Blyton spirit.
