Win tickets to ‘iDesign’ next Tuesday

Article illustration for Win tickets to 'iDesign' next Tuesday

UPDATE: Steve Killen and Anna Fuller: you are the winners! Congratulations! Sorry everyone else – there’s a possiblity I might be able to have more tickets, so I’ll contact you if that’s the case.

As I mentioned last week, I’m going to be speaking at the ‘iDesign: design for life’ event next Tuesday (18th), and the organisers have given me two free tickets to offer as a competition prize to readers of my site. The event is part of the London Design Festival and focuses specifically on the digital world; details are here, here and here. Phew.

To enter the competition, simply leave a comment below. That’s it! On Friday I’ll randomly pick two comments’ permalink IDs and and announce the winners on this post.

By the way, the prize includes the free ticket only (normal price £55) and no travel expenses or anything like that. For that reason, it probably only make sense for UK-based readers to apply (unless you’re feeling rich), but if you’d like to enter on behalf of a friend (for instance, you might live in the US but your friend is in the UK and able to attend), that’s absolutely fine – just leave their name in the comment.

    Looks like you’re in with a good chance here, Zain! Where’s everyone else?

    London-based readers: today (Thursday 13th) is your last chance to nab yourself a free ticket to this event!

    Ooh hope I’m not too late, wouldn’t mind one of those tickets. Don’t worry about the travel expense think it would be about £2!

    Nice one for entering, everyone.

    I’m going to close commenting just after midnight (which is 20 minutes away at the time of writing) and pick the winners. In order to be as fair as possible, I’m going to randomly pick two permalink IDs from the comments (excluding the IDs of my comments, of course) and then link those IDs to names afterwards.

    I’ll be announcing the winners on this post very shortly!
