Competition – the winners!

August 10th, 2014

As I said in my last post, we didn’t have a lot of competition entries, which was a bit disappointing. But the high quality made up for it. People clearly put so much effort into their book trailers, and as a result I’ve been scratching my head, trying to work out the winner.

In the end, I decided to have one winner for people who did either a video or powerpoint, and one for those who drew a storyboard. And because that means we’ll have two winners (and not a lot of entries), I’m not going to award a second prize or a runner-up.

BUT – the first two people to leave a message on this post (as long as they’re not one of the winners) will receive an Ice BreakerΒ poster!

Now for the winners. Storyboards first, and the winner is nine-year-old Oliver from Auckland, New Zealand! Here’s his entry – and what I liked about it was that it is REALLY like a movie trailer.


As for the videos/powerpoints, the winner is Elena, who is twelve. And once again, her entry was like watching a real movie trailer.

I’ll be emailing the winners later today to ask them what they would like for their prize. πŸ™‚ Thanks to everyone who entered! And keep an eye on this blog for news of Sunker’s Deep, Book 2 in the Hidden series!

    Wow, those are really good entries. They totally earned it. Sadly, i couldn’t enter because we were moving apartments and didn’t have much time. I’m looking forward to the next competition though and i’ll have time to enter. πŸ˜€ Congratulations Oliver and Elena!
