    Win 100 - Answer is - CHANGE THE WORLD BY BEING YOURSELF ( Page 3 )

    Win 3000 - Answer is - TRIBAL ( Page 7 )

    Please note
    In the magazine it has two closing dates 29/08 ( 100 ) and 05/09 ( 3000 )
    As both answers are on the same entry form, it may be wise to use the first date 29/08 as the closing date for both competitions ( hope this makes sense )

    Good luck everyone
