Competition: Win a ticket to the London MCM Expo!

We have ten tickets to give away in our online-only competition. Find out details on how to win here.

To celebrate the upcoming MCM Expo in London, held from 29-31 October 2010 at the ExCel Centre in London, SciFiNow has teamed up with the event to offer ten lucky readers the chance to win a full weekend pass.

Commonly referred to as the UK’s Comic-Con, MCM Expo regularly attracts tens of thousands of visitors over the weekend, with events held during the summer and October. This time, special guests include Adrian Hodges (Primeval), Tim Haines (Primeval), Colin Ferguson (Eureka), Jaime Ray Newman (Eureka), Eddie McClintock (Warehouse 13), Jack Kenny (Warehouse 13), Joanne Kelley (Warehouse 13), Saul Rubinek (Warehouse 13), Glenn Morshower (Transformers), Lucas Bryant (Haven), Sam Ernst (Haven), Jim Dunn (Haven), John De Lancie (Star Trek) and Tony Todd (Chuck), as well as a host of videogames and comics figures.

MCM Expo has kindly provided us with ten e-tickets to give away to our readers, which we’ll be doing in three stages, detailed below.


On Tuesday and Wednesday, we’ll be picking four Twitter followers to win tickets. All you have to do is follow @SciFiNow and @imaginesubs, and tell us what, in 140 characters, is your favourite science fiction television show and why.


On Thursday and Friday, we’ll be picking four people who have ‘liked’ our Facebook page. To be in with a chance, tell us on the page what you’d ask the cast of Eureka, Warehouse 13 or Haven in an interview. The winners will receive tickets, and we’ll pick a question to ask the actors and producers at the event. This can also be entered via Twitter.


On Monday, we’ll be picking a further two people to win tickets. To throw your hat in the ring, simply e-mail with the subject ‘MCM Expo Competition’, answering the following question correctly:

What was the name of John De Lancie’s character on Star Trek?

a) E

b) M

c) Q

All answers must be received by 5pm GMT on Monday 25 October. Winning entrants will be e-mailed their ticket with instructions on how to exchange it for a wristband at the event. Only one ticket will be awarded per person, but you can enter in all three categories.
