You can win the doll pictured above by entering this competition.
To enter the competition you need to do a 'project' inspired by this Mermaid doll.What is a Project - Well it can be absolutely anything. You could give your kids a bath and get them to splash their tails like a mermaid, or you could paint your child's room with an under the sea theme mural, and everything in between.
Who can enter - Anyone with a mermaid inspired idea. The competition is open internationally. Obviously you must be willing to give me your postal address if you win so I can post the doll to you.
Do I need to have a blog - No you don't need to be a blogger to enter. If you don't have a blog you can enter by email your project to
tamingthegoblin [at] gmail [dot] com(please title your email Mermaid project), and I will compile a post of all non blog entries the day before the competition winner is announced.
Can I enter more than once - Yes, you can enter as many times as you like but each entry must be a different project. The idea is to get as many inspiring projects as possible.
Do I need to add the Mermaid project button - You don't have to put the button on your entry but it would be really nice if you did so others know that you are linking to this competition and it helps spread the word. If your project has no pictures (eg a poem or story) the button can act as a thumb nail when you link up.
Who will judge it - Hublet and I will judge the competition. We will be looking for something that stands out. We aren't necessarily looking for the best made item or the most beautiful or well written, age will be taken into consideration when judging entries.
What if I have a question you haven't answered here - please leave any questions or queries in the comments. That way others who might also have the same question can see the answer when I reply. Alternatively you can email me at tamingthegoblin [dot] gmail [dot] com.
