Borders today announced that it will serve as the exclusive retailer partner for the “Be a Duchess for a Day” giveaway — a sweepstakes sponsored by Paramount Vantage, the specialty film division of Paramount Pictures, and VisitBritain, the national tourist board for England, Scotland and Wales.
The sweepstakes, which begins today and runs through Sept. 30, will coincide with the Sept. 19 release of The Duchess, a feature film starring Keira Knightley and Ralph Fiennes based on Georgiana: Duchess of Devonshire, a national bestseller by Amanda Foreman about the scandalous rise and perilous fall of 18th century socialite Georgiana Cavendish, Duchess of Devonshire.
The grand prize winner will receive a trip for two to England, including four nights accommodation at a four-star property in East Midlands; a tour of Chatsworth House, the ancestral home of Georgiana, Duchess of Devonshire; and a luxurious spa treatment. To enter the sweepstakes, U.S. and Canada (except Quebec) residents age 18 and older simply visit www.borders.com/duchess and complete the entry form. There’s no purchase necessary to enter. One grand prize winner will be randomly selected from all eligible entries.
