Throw away the Times and win
Thursday 24 August 1995
To mark this auspicious occasion, and to help Mr Murdoch dispose of the 1.5 million copies he is printing, the Independent has a particularly tedious competition. There will be a prize of pounds 117, representing a year's subscription to The Independent, for the reader who sends in the largest number of Times mastheads cut from page one of today's paper.
Any group of readers inclined to assemble a larger pile of this value- free material, is warmly invited to do so. We suggest any location adjacent to a recycling point. The Independent picture desk would be happy to hear from anyone whose stack reaches, say, 15 feet in height.
Entries for the "collect a worthless masthead" contest should be sent to:
Waste Paper, The Independent, 1 Canada Square, London E14 5DL.
Envelopes should be marked in the top left hand corner with the total number enclosed and arrive by last post, Tuesday 29 August.
