Bodyguard competition

Would you make it as a bodyguard?

To celebrate the publication of the second book in the Bodyguard series, Ransom, in May 2014, we’re offering you the chance to win Ray Ban sunglasses, Bodyguard Go-Bags and even your very own personalised book cover – featuring YOU!

To enter, you need to submit a photo of yourself protecting someone or something, in a bodyguard pose and sunglasses, and tell us in a short sentence why you’d make a good bodyguard. We’ll share some of our favourite entries here on the website!

Along with Chris, we’ll pick one main winner who’ll receive their photo designed into a Bodyguard book jacket, a pair of Ray Ban sunglasses and a bodyguard go-bag containing: signed copies of Hostage and Ransom, a signed Bodyguard poster, flashlight, compass, first aid kit, pen and disposable camera.

We’ll also choose four runners-up who’ll all win bodyguard go-bags.

The competition is open now and closes after midnight on Friday 20th June 2014.

To enter, please email your photo to puffin@uk.penguingroup.com with ‘Bodyguard comp’ in the subject line. Please also include your Name, Age, and one sentence describing why you’d make a good bodyguard!
