# Scribblings Competiton #2: Edinburgh Wrist Bands & Books To Win!

#### THIS COMPETITION IS NOW CLOSED. COME BACK SOON FOR ONE MORE CHANCE TO WIN NOEL GOODIES!

As we announced yesterday, The Velvet Onion and Canongate Books are proud to be able to offer 5 lucky peelers the chance to get guaranteed signed copies of * Scribblings Of A Madcap Shambleton* – in person with

**Noel Fielding**and

**Dave Brown**– this Saturday!

The duo will be signing copies at Urban Outfitters, Princes Street, Edinburgh, from 12pm to 3pm, and five of our readers will be given a pair of wristbands for the event for them and a friend, and one free signed copy of the book too! All you have to do is reply to this post with a comment below, answering the following question:

### In Noel Fielding’s painting titled *‘Bubblegum Cats’*, how many whiskers can you see on the cats in total?

The first five correct comments received will be given the wristbands and books on Saturday by Canongate’s promotional team. Winners MUST be able to provide their own transport to the event, and be 100% certain they can make it. For all the legal T&Cs, see below.

**UPDATE!**

We have our winners! Georgie Malone, Jasmine, Heather, Lauren Winstanley and Justjenita19 are our winners, and will be given the wristbands for Saturday’s signing event for them and a friend, plus a copy of the book to get signed! We will be contacting our five winners this evening (please make sure you’ve emailed your contact details to us at submit@thevelvetonion.com), and if any of them are unable to attend, we will be offering their places to the closest runners up.

The winning answer was 12 (and here’s the painting as proof); the painting of the single cat is called ‘Bubblegum cat at the cinema’.

Next week will we hope to see more competitions on site – including more chances to win prizes in entirely different ways. So don’t worry if you missed out here, or have a really slow connection – your time may yet come! Thanks everyone!

In the book, there’s 3 cats. Although that is two different paintings so I don’t know if it will count, but in the index it says p56 – p57 is Bubblegum Cats.
