Editorial The WorldTempus Big Summer Competition Returns!
It’s time to sharpen your competitive instincts…
I hope you guys are ready for some good news. What am I talking about — of course you are! The annual WorldTempus Big Summer Competition is back, and if you’ve been having the kind of year that I’ve been having, you’re ready for a good, long break. For the second consecutive year, we’re offering as our Big Summer Competition grand prize a vacation at a tropical beach resort in Mauritius. Le Trou aux Biches is a five-star luxury getaway on the northwestern coast of Mauritius, steps away from a pellucid turquoise lagoon, fronted by a shimmering white beach, perfectly positioned some of the most spectacular sunset views anywhere in the world. We’re offering you, our readers, a six-night stay for two at this little slice of Eden, and I am gradually brimming over with regret as I write this, because I so badly want to go myself. (But it’s reserved for you, our WorldTempus readers. Alas!)
The WorldTempus Big Summer Competition starts from now (well, yesterday, technically) until 21 September, with new questions every Sunday, Wednesday and Friday for you to increase your chances of winning something from one of our lovely supporting partners. Apart from the grand prize — I’m still sore about the Mauritius vacation being out of reach, and what I’m about to tell you isn’t going to make me feel any better — we also have items such as a gorgeous bracelet by watchmaker-jeweller to the stars Jacob & Co., a watch winder by Swiss KubiK, a sturdy travel bag from Maurice Lacroix, and a leather journal from Montblanc.
You know the drill. Every week throughout the summer, we’ll be asking two questions, one on Wednesday and one on Friday. Each question corresponds to a prize offered by one of our partners, and the winner will be drawn from all the entrants who submit the right answer. Loyal readers will find our questions a cinch, but don’t worry even if you’re a first-time visitor to WorldTempus — for each question, we’ve provided a handy selection of article links that will guide you to the right answer every single time.
The Sunday questions correspond to the grand prize, and you can participate as often as you like in order to give yourself more chances of winning. What’s more, every question in the summer competition will remain available throughout the three-month summer season, so if you miss one you can always catch up later. Insider tip — bookmark the summer competition page, so you can see all the questions at once and make sure you haven’t overlooked any of our competition opportunities.
Good luck to everyone participating! And don’t forget us, your tireless WorldTempus family, when you’re stretched out on your deluxe plush beach towel (yes, we have one of those up for grabs too, provided by Zenith) at the Trou aux Biches with a tall iced drink in your hand.
