The Competition

Well,it's come around to that dread day when I said I would have a competition.

It's a thank you for all of you who have joined as followers [nobody else] and the prize is a wee original drawing of my choice [or not ].

OK. The first step is to explain the rules [as such] and how the competition will run.

As mentioned in a reply to a comment - I'm aware that some might have an unfair advantage because of the matter of time zones.

So the competition will run for a few days, if there is one fast outright winner then they will be declared the winner, but if several correct entries come in more or less at the 'same' time then all will be put 'into a hat' and a winner drawn. 

If no 'fast' winning entry is made then clues will be posted each day.

The judgement is final. 

As you'll see, there is a set of photographs, each which has a question or questions attached. All you have to do is answer the questions. All the answers are linked to stuff about me on the Internet or related sites. 

Some may seem obscure, but the information is there if you do the research on my homeland of Scotland. [Clue no. 1 ].

Clues will be posted each day if necessary. 

The first Question is a stinker! 
But the picture clues may be related [Clue no. 1 ].

Q.1  Name the village, which has architectural interest.

Q2.  Name the style of architecture.

Q6. Name where it is now.

PICTURE 5. These penguins can now be found where I went to art college.
Q7. What is the name of the city.

Q8. Name each character.

Q9. Name each comic they come from.

PICTURE 7. Cloud dragon over village [another clue].

Right 10 questions. Nothing more to add [though bribery? Naw, can't allow temptation ], Look forward to entries!!

Best of Luck to all. Russ.
