Online magazine Tusk is moving into print, and giving away copies of Vol. 0- all you need to do is enter our competition.

This month online journal Tusk has launched its very first paper version; a beautifully designed 64-page magazine championing music, fashion and culture in the North West and the young creatives that are shaping the scene today.

Featuring the likes of independent record label SWAYS Records, the Liverpool Craft Beer Company and Everything Everything via some knee-weakeningly gorgeous recipes (Braised Ox Cheek with horseradish mash, anyone?) Vol. 0 is a thing of both substance and beauty. Not to mention a much-needed addition to the growing number of exciting publications coming out of the North West, from Corridor8 to Intern Mag.

To coincide with the launch of Vol. 0, the Tusk lot is offering ten Creative Tourist readers the chance to win a copy.

This competition is now closed.

Terms and conditionsThe winner will be the first correct entry selected at random from all correct entries received. No purchase necessary. No cash alternative given. Employees of Creative Tourist, TUSK Journal and associated companies, are not eligible to enter. The judge’s decision is final and no correspondence will be entered into. Winners will be notified as soon as possible after the closing date. Only one entry per person. Entrants will automatically be added to the Creative Tourist mailing list – don’t worry, we never share data and we promise not to bombard you with endless emails. Closing Date: 10am, Thursday 12 December 2013.
