UK 10-16 Year Olds: Win a Trip Aboard the Dawn Treader

Posted August 13, 2010 3:06 pm by fantasia_kitty

Thus far, the competition to win a trip aboard the Matthew (decked out as the Dawn Treader) has been held in Italy and France. Now it’s open to kids and teens in the UK.

To win a week’s sailing on the magnificent ship The Matthew, off the magical coast of Cornwall, for you and an adult, all you have to do is answer the question [provided]. The competition is open to 10-16 year olds , and you must be able to travel between 30th Aug and 6th Sept 2010 and as it’s being filmed you must agree to be filmed and appear on Five TV. Not only that but we’re also throwing in two tickets to the The Voyage of the Dawn Treader film premiere! But hurry up as the closing date is 22nd August 2010.

The competition is being done in association with Channel 5 news. The official website to enter is here and the Channel Five news website for the competition is here. Good luck to everyone who enters!

Thanks to daredevil for the heads up!

  • LadyCourage says:

    Oh my word!! Even if it WAS in the US- I COULDN’T ENTER!!! WAAAAAAH!!!

    Man, I hope a NWebber wins so we can get a report on it! :DD

  • pselpevensie says:

    PLEASE LET THIS COME TO THE US NEXT!!!!!!!!!

    • Aslan's Meadow says:

      I second that!!!!!
      And I’m only 16 for 6 more months, so if the age applies to here, I’ll be safe!

    • Starlily says:

      Ditto! Even if I’m a little too old to participate. I still want it to come to the US! Maybe we would get to see it on the news.

    • Thom says:

      Hello, I work on The Matthew as crew. We would absolutely love to sail over to the U.S. However, it costs a phenominal amount to get a boat of this sort to cross the Atlantic. So for the time being at least we shall remain, bobbing about around Europe. If you ever find yourself in Bristol. come for a sail. Follow the blog online at http://www.matthew.co.uk.

    Or in other pleaces in the world !!!

  • Aurora says:

    Oh man. Why is it 10-16 year olds? How about those older than 16. Man, that’s annoying. 🙁

    Lol, sounds like it’s going to be great fun though! XD

  • JillPoleWannaBe says:

    *crossing fingers* PLEASE COME TO US!!!!

  • narnian resident says:

    you know, the U.S. is just as into Narnia as any other country. please, PLEASE come and do something special for the U.S. too!

    • Warrior 4 Jesus says:

      Most of the competitions (yes, admittedly not voyages) have been only for Americans. Let other people have a turn.

      • narnian resident says:

        im not saying ignore other countries, thats the last im trying to say, but it just doesnt seem like they’ve done alot for the U.S. lately. i’d wish at least something even small like a expedition, cuz where i live (Austin TX), NOTHING related to Narnia ever happens here.

      • narnian resident says:

        im sorry if i had sounded rude there. i didnt mean to.

      • icarus says:

        I think Fox have been very fair with their promotional competitions so far. So far there has been 1 big promotional competition for the UK, France, Italy and the USA, and im sure they are working their way on getting to other countries soon. Its a welcome change from Disney, who spent the entirety of the last campaign focusing on the USA at the expense of everyone else.

      • Warrior 4 Jesus says:

        Narnian resident, no worries mate. I’m not offended. I understand your passion for something Narnian in your part of the U.S.

        Icarus, that’s very true, although I can’t help thinking it would be nice to have a competition for Australia, considering VDT was mostly filmed here (and we’re usually missed out). Thanks

  • HighQueen_Of_LanternWaste says:

    I’m older than that… 🙁

  • Me says:

    I wish it was here because i would be in the right age range.

  • Alassiel says:

    Come to the U.S. and do one for all ages!!! Please!

  • narniafan#1 says:

    I second everything everybody else already said!

  • Anonymous Narnian says:

    Surely hope this comes to the US soon!

    *chanting* USA… USA… USA…

  • Sir Jack says:

    Why am I always too young, or too old?
    I bet anyway It’s never gonna come to germany.. 🙁
    grrrrrrrrr…

  • Not Of This World says:

    I’m with in the range and I have a lot of English blood in me! But I don’t think that’ll count if you live in the USA. 🙁

  • Edmund the Just says:

    There is no worry for me because i have 5 1/2 years left. PLENTY OF TIME!!!!!!!!!!1

  • BONNEFOY says:

    Je me permets de signaler qu’en France la rentrée des classes est le 2 Septembre … Cela veut donc dire que le potentiel gagnant du concours devra s’absenter une semaine à ce moment-là …
    Et que le concours est lancé sur Okapi/Bayard presse, si j’ai bien compris … c’est un journal de qualité, pour bons lecteurs/ élèves motivés ! Meme si ce journal est largement répandu (la plupart des écoles sont abonnées), les dates peuvent faire obsttacle pour les Parents !

  • BONNEFOY says:

    … Mais cela dit, c’est une super idée, et je trouve que le marketing "Fox" est nettement plus performant et astucieux que le marketing Mickey ! On voit la promo monter en puissance en s’^ppuyant sur tous les réseaux potentiels : les réseaux chrétiens, les réseaux tye facebook, le site internet avec le lancement des 2 trailers, et puis le jeu, et le jeu des erruers … pour tout cela je proclame /
    B. R . A. V. O…… BRAVOOOOOOO !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • BONNEFOY says:

    lisez "le jeu des erreurs"

  • BONNEFOY says:

    Bon !
    Je viens de consulter le site de "Okapi" rubrique concours !
    En France la participation s’arrêtait hier 13 Août et le voyage avait été programmé du 23 au 29 Août => tout va bien ! comme diarit Lucy The Queen dite "la vaillante"

    • Warrior 4 Jesus says:

      Please don’t write 4 posts in a row. Also, please write in English on an predominately English-speaking forum. Thanks

      • Fiona Everest says:

        maybe he or she dosen’t know english, and you can go to bing and use their translator or something if you want, I did with a mexican one but it dosen’t give the greatest translations. 🙂 But you get the jist of what they are saying. 🙂

      • Fiona Everest says:

        Here is the bing translation, 🙂 It dosent make sense at some parts though. 🙂

        Let me point out that in France the school classes is 2 September… This means therefore winning potential competition must be absent a week at this time… And that the contest is started on Okapi/Bayard press, if I understand it… is a log of quality, for good readers / students motivated! Even if this log is widely used (most schools subscribe), dates may be obsttacle for parents!

        That said, it’s a great idea but I find "Fox" marketing is much more powerful and clever as Mickey marketing! We see the promo mount power in is ^ ppuyant on all potential networks: Christian networks, facebook type networks, the website with the launch of the 2 trailers, and then set and set erruers… for this I announce /. B. R. A. V. O…… BRAVOOOOOOO!

        read "the set of errors"

        I just visit the site of "Okapi" topic contest! France participation stopped yesterday 13 August and travel had been scheduled from 23 to August 29 => everything is going well! as The so-called "the valiant" Queen Lucy diarit

  • rutger says:

  • Braden Woodburn says:

    Wow so lucky and cool! Bet they deserve it! Can’t believe the movie will be here in 117 days! Really not that far when you think of it! Gosh I really hope Dawn Treader does great so they can do Silver Chair next as well as the others that NEED to be in films! Narnia foreverrrrr!

  • dominiclovesnarnia says:

    Oh, I signed up!I wish I won! 😀

  • BONNEFOY says:

    Google performs magnificent translations … such as "Mer Caspienne" for "King Caspian" …. HA HA

  • Yvonne says:

    hola.. no creen que podrían hacerlo para México??? México!!

  • Yvonne says:

    hola.. no creen que podrían hacerlo para México??? México!! ojalá que hagan algo especial para México

  • Fiona Everest says:
