So we ran a wee competition called #pimpmystar.
We had some slight seconds issue 34s for sale at the reduced price of £3 and asked you to use the (slightly marked) covers to come up with your own, individual issue 34 covers – and tweet them, pinterest them or facebook them. We had a good bunch of people buy copies and four fabulous submissions (six including mine and Martin’s – but we don’t really count) – with collage and gold paint and an embroidered belly-band and a toddler-artist. Out of the four submissions we’ve chosen a #pimpmystar winner who wins a subscription/re-subscription to Brittle Star and our three other entries win some lovely runner up prizes. Alison Clayton Smith is our overall winner, Peter Raynard is a very close second, and Anna Robinson and Kate Wise are our runners up.
