Family-friendly videogames publisher runs contest for NCH youths to design videogame box

Northants, UK. 31st January 2006 - Liquid Games is running a competition for young people in NCH's care to design a cover for its fairytale adventure game, The Quest For Sleeping Beauty. After donating a number of its titles to NCH - The Children's Charity projects throughout the UK last year, the competition continues the close relationship between the family-friendly games publisher and the charity.

One lucky winner will see their design produced as a special one-off limited edition cover, and will also win a PlayStation 2 and a copy of the game for their project to enjoy. Ten other NCH projects will also benefit from exclusive copies of the game featuring the runners' up winning designs on the covers.

A judging panel comprising games industry luminaries and NCH representatives will announce the winners on March 20th, with invites being issued on March 27th to relevant media to attend the prize giving ceremony which will take place on April 10th, just in time for the Easter holiday.

Speaking about the competition, Liquid's publishing director, Kevin Hassall said:

"Liquid Games first became involved with NCH around our launch, last Christmas, and after a very busy year we're delighted to be able to work with them again. NCH's work with children throughout the UK is profoundly important, and we have the utmost respect for what they do."

Through their support services, the NCH helps vulnerable children throughout the UK reach their full potential. This support ranges from adoption and family placement services, through to education, disability services, family projects, health and well being, children's rights and youth projects.

NCH regional co-ordinator, Debbie Smith commented:

"We are really pleased to be working with Liquid Games again and this competition is an exciting opportunity for the young people from our projects across the UK to get involved".

The competition is open to all young people in the care of NCH throughout the UK and will run from now until February 28th 2006.
