UPDATE 8-April 2:30pm – The winners have been selected and notified. I loved Jess’s idea, which combined humour and cunning (if not bending the rules just a touch to count Ray Mears with his pockets stuffed full of tools as one object…) and she has been sent a pair of tickets for the How To Academy event.

But we had such a strong response to the competition, with so many great suggestions that we felt we had to award two runners-up as well. Well done Alex and James for your entries – I particularly liked your practical mindedness of a solar-powered electronic library and seed potatoes (and of course a decent Scotch…). You’ve both been sent a hardback copy of The Knowledge.

And I felt that I also had to give an honourable mention to Simon for his efforts at preserving the finer things in life: jazz and tea!
