2. Competition Reminder

This month we have a Discworld Atlas courtesy of Karen Covill (thank you Karen) to give away. Discworld Monthly will add one of our mugs and competition winners badge into the prize pot.

We've hidden a phrase somewhere on our website at when you find it it will be clear that these are the words for the issue 225 competition.

To enter the competition you need to find the words and send your answer, along with your postal address, to before 18th February 2016. Your address will only be used for sending out your prize should you be the lucky winner. Once prizes are sent out all address details will be destroyed. Entries received after the closing date or sent to any other address will be ignored. No more than one entry per person will be accepted. Failure to answer the questions or provide your postal address will prevent you from being entered into the competition. Multiple entries will be banned. Answers to the questions must not be posted to any websites before the competition ends. The judges' decision is final.

For more information about the Discworld Atlas see our review in Issue 223
