Announcing our Advent Calendar Contest 2019!

It’s that time of year again!

Starting next Sunday, 1 December, we are counting down the days to the winter holidays with our traditional Advent Calendar contest.

There will be 24 pictures from Andrew Gower‘s career – past, present and future – that will be posted on all our Social Media outlets, on Twitter, Facebook (Page and Group), Instagram and in our Gallery on 24 consecutive days leading up to Christmas Eve.

All “days” will be posted at 12pm (CET) on Social Media and uploaded to our Gallery soon after.

To enter the contest and win one of our exclusive prizes, including the highly prestigious title as “Andrew Gower Fan of the Year”, you need to do the following:

  • Like the picture and comment with your guess of the context (what TV show, movie, event is it from?)
  • Alternatively – if you don’t have a Social Media account – you can simply e-mail us.

As an example, have a look at our past Advent Calendars 2016, 2017 and 2018.

Every honest guess (whether correct or not) will enter your name to the drawing pot from which winners will be chosen on 1 January 2020. One guess per day and person only, but you can guess every day which will increase your chances to win.

(Disclaimer: We’re an open-minded group and respect all faiths and (non-)beliefs. We love all fans of Andrew Gower, no matter which holiday they celebrate this time of year, or whether they celebrate any at all!)

Advent Calendar Contest

It’s starting to feel a lot like Christmas!

As in previous years, we’re counting down the days to the winter holidays with an Advent Calendar and an overview of Andrew’s career – past, present and future. As in previous years, this will also be a contest and a chance for you to win some prizes!

There will be 24 pictures taken from his different projects and events he attended, posted on 24 consecutive days on Twitter and our Facebook Page. Why don’t you test your knowledge about Andrew’s career by guessing the context of each picture (for example, the picture above is taken from his Nutritiously Nicola interview)?

Everyone is welcome to play along! However, prizes are this time exclusively limited to members of our Facebook Group. So come and join us!

Among the prizes are our popular super sized Andrew postcards, an exclusive Andrew Gower wall calendar – and the highly prestigous title of “Andrew Gower Fan of the Year“!

Fan Art Winner

Last but not least we’re very happy to announce our fan art winner, Twitter follower and group member, Nancy Hibberd!

Nancy created this beautiful fan video about Outlander‘s Bonnie Prince Charlie. We cannot even begin to fathom how much creativity, work and determination must have gone into the creation of this gem, so this is a very well deserved first winner!

Congratulations, Nancy!

Poetry Winner

andrewbonnieprince

The winner of our poetry contest is the wonderfully talented poet, our Twitter follower and group member Jackie Merrell!

She originally wrote this poem for Andrew when he attended Starfury’s Highlanders 3 convention in Birmingham this summer. The poem itself is about Outlander‘s Bonnie Prince Charlie.

The White Cockade
by J. Merrell

It’s hard to know,
just who you can trust,
surrounded by the white cockade
proudly worn in solidarity,
yet no loyalty in sight,
emblem of my family
and symbol of my duty displayed,
will anything I do matter
to the man I call father?
Fighting for a cause not my own
in a country with no real ties
holding me to its breast,
and in the end I don’t know
which way to turn
or what is right anymore
in the blinding blaze of battles lost.

Andrew loved the poem – and who are we to disagree with him?

Congratulations, Jackie!

Only 10 days later, on 22 September 2016, the Twitter account followed.

In (almost) two years, we gained 351 members on Facebook and 1870 followers on Twitter – reason enough for us to say a HUGE THANK YOU for all the love and support!
