Templar launches Jonny Duddle window competition for independent bookstores

Back to news

Templar Publishing, an imprint of Kings Road Publishing, has launched a window competition with bestselling author and illustrator Jonny Duddle, to celebrate the paperback publication of The Pirates of Scurvy Sands. 

The competition, for independent bookshops only, asks them, with the help of a pirate POS pack, to create an imaginative pirate themed window display over the summer holidays. The window pack includes: bunting, character standees, posters, postcards, gold coins and an eye patch.

 

Indies have until Monday 23rd July to request their POS pack and until Friday 7th September to share their window display on social media in order to be in with a chance of winning.

 

Jonny Duddle will judge the entries and the winning bookshop will receive a £500 cash prize plus an author visit.

 

I’m hugely excited by this competition and can’t wait to see what our seafaring nation’s briny and brilliant booksellers can create.

Lisa Hoare, Communications Director at Kings Road Publishing, said: “The joyful and bright artwork of The Pirates of Scurvy Sands is perfect for fun summer window displays. This is a great opportunity for us to get more involved with the independent book shops, encouraging creativity and imagination. We can’t wait to see the innovative windows!”

Jonny Duddle added: “Wonderful window displays draw me into bookshops all the time, and have done since I was a wide-eyed kid with my snotty nose pressed against the glass. I’m hugely excited by this competition and can’t wait to see what our seafaring nation’s briny and brilliant booksellers can create. Good luck shipmates!”
