The Towel Day Ambassador Contest

August 21st, 2016

TOWEL DAY MAY 25th

A towel is just about the most massively useful thing any of the interstellar hitchhiker can carry. Partly because it has great practical value. You can wrap it around you for warmth as you bound across the cold moons of Jaglan Beta; you can lie on it on the brilliant marble-sanded beaches of Santraginus V, inhaling the heady sea vapours; you can sleep under it beneath the stars which shine so redly on the desert world of Kakrafoon; use it to sail a miniraft down the slow heavy River Moth; wet it for use in hand-to-hand combat; wrap it around your head to ward off noxious fumes or avoid the gaze of the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal (a mind-bogglingly stupid animal, it assumes that if you can’t see it, it can’t see you — daft as a brush, but very very ravenous); you can wave your towel in emergencies as a distress signal, and of course you can dry yourself off with it if it still seems to be clean enough…

  Each year since 2011 Hitchhiker fans and Douglas Adams fanatics vote to democratically decide on a representative for Earth as the Intergalactic Towel Day Ambassador. Contestants are asked to make a two minute YouTube video, explaining why they would be right for the job.

  Here at Galactic Hitchhikers we have six out of seven Ambassadors on board, we are proud to have them with us! The TDA Contest is one of our most sacred institutions. In our community there are no former Ambassadors, once elected they have the job for life.

 Do you think you are hoopy enough? Do you rough it, slum it, struggle against terrible odds, win through and still know where your towel is? Don’t Panic! You might be our next Towel Day Ambassador! Submit your video to the Towel Day Ambassador Contest page on Facebook by March 30th to enter!
