Ben: Yes, that’s right! A competition!

Courtesy of our friends The Duckworth Lewis Method, Jing Tea and Teapigs, we’ve got a whole load of exclusive prizes to give away. We could just keep them to ourselves but we’re far too nice (on this occasion).

Not only are we giving away some great tea, we’ve got some stunning tea-making equipment and, best of all, a promo copy of the Duckworth Lewis album. Even better, if you win the first prize we’ll send you the Duckworth Lewis album two weeks ahead of the retail release!

Prizes this good don’t come free, though! We want you to bowl us over with your creativity.

The Duckworth Lewis Method album is the ideal soundtrack to this summer and the teas we’re giving away are all ideally suited for making into ice tea to sip in the sunshine. They go together so well!

We want you to illustrate this point in any way you can. Combine tea and cricket in an entertaining, amusing, brilliant, comical, thought-provoking way using whatever media you like. Pictures, videos, paintings, songs, pasta-stuck-to-cardboard – anything you like! There are only three overall rules:

  1. There must be something in there about tea;
  2. There must be something in there about cricket;
  3. There should be no rudies (we are a family blog, after all)

You have until midday on Wednesday 24th June to get your entries in. We will pick winners based on brilliance – that may mean the funniest, the most sincere or the most elaborate. Special consideration will be given to the amount of effort involved.

Here’s what you can win:

1st prize:

First Prize

2nd prize:

Second Prize

3rd prize:

Third Prize True

The three winners will be picked by Dan and I shortly afterwards and will be posted on Saturday 27th to be with you on the following Monday. Because we’re posting quite heavy items, this competition is UK and Ireland only on this occasion (but we’ll hopefully have some more competitions open to all at a later date).

Craft your masterpiece as best you can and, once you’re satisfied with it, send it to us at teatunes [at] googlemail [dot] com including your name and postal address (and details of why we’re so awesome/lame). We’ll post here on Saturday 27th with the results.

Have fun! We look forward to seeing what you come up with.
