COMPETITION: See Sightseers, Win STUFF!
You’d have to be living under a rock, or looking at a different website not to know that Sightseers is released in UK cinemas tomorrow. Technically, given most cinemas run Thursday to Wednesday, that means it’s out now!
The amazing new black comedy from acclaimed director Ben Wheatley, executive producer Edgar Wright and of course, TVO regulars and legends Alice Lowe and Steve Oram, will wow your socks off, and to reward those who take our advice and go and see it this weekend, we have a special contest for you.
To mark the release, the good folk at StudioCanal have given us THREE special bundles of Sightseers prizes to give away! Each bundle includes:
* A Sightseers poster signed by Alice Lowe and Steve Oram.
* A selection of Sightseers promo goodies – including your very own gonk!
* DVDs of four of StudioCanal’s best British comedy films: Attack The Block, The Guard and TVO related hits Submarine and Four Lions.
To be in with a chance of winning one of these, we’re going to need you to engage with our social media presences. We want you to help us help Alice, Steve, Ben and the rest of the team make this film a hit, so we’re encouraging you to let everyone you know realise how bloody brilliant it is too.
If you want to win a bundle, go and see Sightseers this weekend, and take a photo of yourself at your local cinema clutching your ticket! Then you’ll need to do one of two things!
OPTION ONE: Upload your image to your own Facebook page and include The Velvet Onion in a photo tag or status update!
OPTION TWO: Upload your image to your own Twitter page and include @thevelvetonion or #thevelvetonion in your tweet!
The more inventive you are, the better. You can include your friends if you want. You can pose amusingly in front of Sightseers posters or standees if you prefer. You might even persuade your local cinema staff to get in on the action! And if you want to get your cagoules on, or make your own ginger faces or wool underwear, we’re not going to stop you! The only proviso is you must have bought a cinema ticket for the film, which must be on display in the photo, and you have to upload it to Facebook or Twitter and send it our way on there.
We’ll be taking submissions until midnight on Monday evening, and will be posting a selection of your images on site next week. Our favourite THREE will win a bundle, and the respect of everyone worth anything. So get on down to your local cinema to be in with a chance of winning!
