Obtain pictures that fit in withrepparttar 150707 prize. For example: ifrepparttar 150708 prize is a tropical island holiday, find (or draw) pictures ofrepparttar 150709 location, or of activities that can be done there. This can be as simple as cutting outrepparttar 150710 pictures fromrepparttar 150711 competition page itself. 3. Think of an original way to presentrepparttar 150712 entry to make it eye-catching. The aim is to makerepparttar 150713 judges pick a particular entry out of a pile of thousands. Ifrepparttar 150714 entry is going to be on paper: • Use coloured paper, rather than white. • Write in colour, or printrepparttar 150715 entry in colourful font. • Add pictures as a border. • Prominently placerepparttar 150716 sponsors’ logos onrepparttar 150717 page.

Not surprisingly,repparttar 150718 best chance of all comes with a lot more effort. Turnrepparttar 150719 entry into a model, or a mobile, or a comic strip, or a mini-book. For example:repparttar 150720 competition asks for 25 words about a phone company. Makerepparttar 150721 entry inrepparttar 150722 shape of a phone, withrepparttar 150723 25 words placed onrepparttar 150724 keys. Presenting entries like this will immediately attract attention, therefore increasingrepparttar 150725 chances of a prize. 4. Don’t stop with an eye-catching entry. Makerepparttar 150726 envelope stand out fromrepparttar 150727 rest too. There are two main ways to do this: • Use a coloured envelope, or glue pictures all over a plain one and contact it for protection. (Make sure thatrepparttar 150728 address can still be clearly seen!) • Sendrepparttar 150729 entry by Express Postrepparttar 150730 day beforerepparttar 150731 contest closes. As well as standing out,repparttar 150732 entry will also be closer torepparttar 150733 top ofrepparttar 150734 pile. If it is opened early and is impressive, it may becomerepparttar 150735 “entry to beat.”

Follow these simple steps and first prize may only be a contest away. Good Luck!
