the accompanying text on entry forms.
Then start by making a word list, for example:
cruise, harbour, ocean, sunshine, blue skies, blue lagoons,
make your entry stand out from thousands of similar
sounding tiebreakers and to increase your chances of
winning, try to think beyond the usual words. Remember
your first thoughts may be the first thoughts of thousands
of other compers.
Come up with different slants for instance:
island hopping, treasure island, gold and silver, pirates,
marooned, message in bottles
soon as you have an idea for your tiebreaker, write
down a few phrases, for instance:
Marooned on a beautiful dessert island
Don't want to come home - leave me marooned
with phrases to build into tiebreakers as in:
My message reads, having whale of a time, don't rescue
Or how about: Golden sunshine, blue lagoons, don't rescue me, leave
competition rules allow you to submit multiple entries,
send in different tiebreaker ideas. Rather than rework the same tiebreaker, go back to your word
list for more inspiration.
See what you can do with the pirate idea.
Pirates searching oceans and seas, never discovered
islands like these
to bring in the product, for instance it may be a competition
promoted by a cereal company to win a cruise or island
Pirates searching seven seas, never discovered cereals
may like to choose words with double meanings for example:
like to win a cruise with product because...
`harbour' happy times of enjoyable pleasure, with pastimes,
entertainment and times to treasure
Should the product be chocolates, you could adapt it
both `harbour happy times of enjoyable pleasure,
with scenic sights, romantic nights and delicious chocolate
