A Contest for Jane Austen Fans…winners chosen!
Sadly, the contest is over and the winners chosen (the necklace won by Coleen, the Scarf by someone known as Jo’s Daughter, and the ring was won by Heather). Congratulations to all the winners! The contest centered around the 1995 BBC version of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice (the one with Colin Firth as Darcy). The singer-songwriter Jasmine Kyle (a devoted Janeite) wrote a song inspired by the movie and wanted to share it…ie give it away to other Janeites. It’s too late to enter, but you can still…Download a free copy of Jasmine Kyle’s song “Dear Jane”.
Three lucky people won (along with an autographed album) one of these…(one prize per person)…
The replica Jane Austen ring! Sadly it won't come with the box (or with magic powers that will zap you back in time). You will have to imagine up that adventure...I see a sensible Regency hero agonising in the jewelry shop wondering what to buy his sweetheart. Oh, what to get that says I think you're wonderful without even the slightest suggestion that the lady might do anything improper...at least not in public...and certainly not until after his proposal...
The Elizabeth Bennett blue scarf! Perfect for keeping the evening sun off delicate shoulders while strolling in the garden with one's beau...or while attending a summer ball.
The quote necklace that will reveal to the world your Jane-fetish (or at least alert them to the fact you love romance novels). You can tell the world to take heed when confronting romance with one's head! Elizabeth Bennett made up her mind that Darcy was a stuck up prig, but her heart had other another opinion!
So…what did they have to do to enter?
1) Downloaded a free copy of Jasmine Kyle’s song “Dear Jane”.
2) Decided which moment in the BBC ‘95 version of Pride and Prejudice you think inspired the song.
3) E-mailed Jasmine firstname.lastname@example.org (or myself) and told us which scene they thought inspired the song. Feel free to try and guess for fun!
If you haven’t seen this particular version of Pride and Prejudice you can watch all six parts on Youtube here.
