Enter for The 2011 Book Drum Tournament

First Prize: £1,000, 
Second Prize: £500, 
Third Prize: £250,
5 Runner-Up Prizes: £100

Hmmn, Well, that's extra motivation to enter for the 2011 Book Drum Tournament.

Bookdrum is a community in which book lovers from Australia to Zambia can delve deep into a favourite book and, by building an illustrated profile, share their enthusiasm for it with the rest of the world.
The 2010 Book Drum Tournament saw seven Contributors share £2,000 of prizes, and led to eight talented writers being commissioned to write and edit new profiles on the strength of their entries.  Hundreds of people took part, creating many of the excellent Profiles now freely available for everyone to enjoy.
To enter the 2011 Tournament, choose a published book and create a Profile of it, consisting of a Summary, a Review, a Glossary, an illustrated Setting page, a biography of the Author, and a comprehensive set of illustrated Bookmarks. 

About the Tournament
A list of Recommended Books is provided, but you can choose a different book if you prefer.  It should be published by a mainstream publisher, and must be widely available.  Please check your choice with us in case there’s some reason why it might not be suitable:
Only one person may profile any given book.  Where a profile already exists, or is under construction, the book may not be chosen. Check your choice here: Profiles under construction or already published.  Please note that to ensure popular titles are not reserved and left untouched, we may reclaim titles if no significant progress has been made within three weeks.
The Tournament is open to anyone over 18 other than the winners of the 2010 Tournament first and second prizes.  The five runners-up in the 2010 Tournament are free to enter.
The prizes will be awarded by three independent judges.  Results will be announced on May 31, 2011.

Deadline for Entries: April 30, 2011
So, get your books on and join the fun.
