Tamworth festival competition scores the fans

ENTRIES are pouring in for the Tamworth Country Music Festival's online competition to spend a day with O'Shea or a day with the girls.

The competition is being run through the TCMF.com.au's Facebook page and provides fans an opportunity to spend time with Mark and Jay O'Shea, or Lee and Paula Bowman (from Jetty Road) and Amber Lawrence.

Tamworth Country Music Festival co-ordinator Kate Baker said the competition was going "swimmingly well", with more than 13,500 "likes" on the TCMF Facebook page so far.

"When we started we had less than 5000 likes on Facebook. The good thing about the competition is, when people go in to register, we're capturing their data as well," she said.

"It's just been such a phenomenal response for the competition."

Mrs Baker said organisers had been running a few smaller competitions through their Facebook page as well, due to the success of this major competition.

"Social networking has really taken off and, with that added to our traditional markets, it's all pretty exciting," she said.

The prize for the A Day with O'Shea competition includes flights for two people with Qantas from any major Australian city, accommodation at the Quality Hotel Powerhouse for 11 nights of the 2013 festival, courtesy car use and tickets to the CMAA Country Music Awards and other festival shows.

Winners will also get to spend a day with Mark and Jay O'Shea, including a VIP experience at their show.

The A Day with the Girls prize lets fans choose between a fully catered barbecue or a pamper package from Jess and James Hair and Makeup, tickets for two people to attend the CMAA Country Music Awards and other festival shows, plus a day out with Amber Lawrence and Lee and Paula Bowman from Jetty Road, including a night out at one of their shows.
