#duckietravels BIBA2016

Following the success of our competition called #duckietravels at BIBA 2015 we will be doing the same this year.

Last year The HB Duck made it to Australia, China, Morocco, Antigua and many other exotic locations

The rules are simple…

Take a picture of our duck, tweet the picture to @harrisbalcombe with #duckietravels and the person who takes the duck the furthest distance from Manchester Central M2 3GX (as judged by google maps) before 30/9/15 will win £500.

It has to be clear from your picture where you are ie you can’t take a picture next to a pool and simply claim you’re in New Zealand.
