Advent Competition 2017
A Brilliant & Unique Prize Worth Over £250!


An example of a customised CDThis year we have a wonderful, special and unique prize for one lucky Yorkshire Times reader.

In cooperation with our friend Julia McInally, we are offering the winner a custom made song, written, performed, recorded, turned into a CD and gift wrapped just for you, or someone you nominate.

A song is an extrordinary gift for a wedding, engagement, proposal, anniversary, retirement, Christmas, valentines or birthday occasion.

Your song will be created by singer / songwriter Julia McInally who will take the time to get to know you and find out all about your muse. You can do this in person, by email, skype or on a good old fashioned phone call. Julia will take her notes away to start your song and record a draft version for you to check the details and make sure it's everything you hoped for.

Once you give Julia the go ahead, she will professionally record your song and present it in a beautiful personalised package that will be a once in a lifetime gift.

Here's some examples of how good your personalised song can sound:

This song was lovingly created by a mum for her young daughter who had cared for her while she was sick for almost a year.


November Surprise was created for valentines day for this lady to let her man who lives in Spain know what he means to her.


Here a self confessed unromantic manages to tell his lovely wife what she means to him.

How to Win!

It couldn't be simpler.

Just make a splash on Twitter or Facebook by telling your friends about this competition, then we and Julia will pick our favourite as the winner! Be as creative as you like, we want you to let your hair down, find your inner enthusiast and let the world know why you should win this super prize - and have a personalised song and CD to keep for life.

If you follow us on Twitter, or you are one of our lovely Facebook friends, then just mention the Yorkshire Times ( @TheYorksTimes), or Julia McInally ( @JuliaMcInally), or this page ( www.yorkshiretimes.co.uk/Christmas2017), or all three , and you are in with a shout.

Pass it on to as many people as possible to improve your chances of success.

We will pick the winner on December 23rd 2017. And just to be clear, our decision on the winner is final.

It is likely to take about a month to write and record your song.

Go on, give it a go! What a gift to leave to your children, or to say those things you always wanted to but couldn't find the right moment....

Good luck!
