The Limerick Competition has now closed
Edward Lear once said that there was "nothing I long for half so much as to giggle heartily and to hop on one leg down the great gallery."
To celebrate Edward Lear's tremendous sense of fun, World Land Trust (WLT) has launched a limerick competition to coincide with the opening of an exhibition of Lear's prints in WLT gallery in January 2013.
The World Land Trust Limerick Competition is open for entries from all. Entries must conform to the established five line limerick format, and the theme should broadly reflect WLT's mission, history or activities.
Competition entries can be submitted via the WLT website, Facebook page, or by email, by post or in person at WLT gallery. Entry forms can be downloaded from this website or collected from the gallery at Blyth House, Bridge Street, Halesworth, Suffolk IP19 8AB.
The prize will be a framed, illustrated copy of the winning limerick. The winner will also have the chance to meet Bill Oddie to receive the prize personally, either in Halesworth (Suffolk) or London, at a date convenient to Bill Oddie.
The closing date for entries is noon on Friday 5 April 2013 (British summer time).
