Name a street of Ankh Morpork

Postby RJH » Tue Feb 21, 2012 1:22 pm

To celebrate four months until the publication of The Long Earth Transworld are giving one lucky fan the chance to name a street in Ankh-Morpork. That street will go into The Compleat Ankh-Morpork, a brand-new street directory of the Discworld city complete with beautifully illustrated pull-out map which will be available on the 13th September 2012. Your street name will be forever immortalised in the city for all to see, who knows what will happen there in the future!

To win this fantastic opportunity read the below question – and film yourself (or get a friend to film you) on yours (or their!) smart phone (web cam or other recording device) singing the first verse…
The Question

Upon arriving in Matamata, New Zealand, what is the name of the song that was instinctively sung by Terry and Rob without even the need to pause to confer? (submitted by Sir Terry Pratchett)

Send your video answer and chosen street name (be inventive!) to: discworld@transworld-publishers.co.uk. Please be aware all videos will be sent to Sir Terry and he may do with them as he wishes! Competition closes Monday 27th February. I will be entering and I will also be posting the video on here as well
