MUMBAI, India – Crossword Book Awards finalist Prashant Pinge has announced the launch of a photo contest leading up to the release of his much awaited debut young adult fantasy fiction novel, Sceadu. The contest, dubbed The Great Sceadu Photo Contest, shall run from Sep 15, 2014 till Nov 14, 2014 with five e-book copies of Sceadu to be won.
“I’ve always been fascinated by shadows,” says Prashant. “But how many of us really pay attention to them? This contest is designed to give centre stage to the shadow.” And it’s really very simple. All participants have to do is click photographs of shadows, human, other life form, or any other object, and submit them at the link below. The five most creative photographs will be declared on Nov 15, 2014.
But that’s not all. The road to the launch is also paved with the much awaited cover reveal which will take place on Sep 25, 2014 followed by an exciting trailer expose on Oct 1, 2014. “We’ve put in a lot of thought in creating the cover design,” says Prashant. “It’s definitely something that will entice the YA fantasy fan. And the trailer will provide readers with a first taste of Sceadu.”
