After the longest election in history, you might like to stay here for a while …

Indigo Retreat West Lodge, Murrah Beach

Exhausted by the election campaign already? Picturing a post-election mini-break from texts, tweets and talking points? Enter the #followtheleaders photo competition and you could win a three-day weekend at a luxury retreat with your own private infinity pool.

Whoever you are, wherever you’re based, you can take a photo of your copy of Follow the leaders in the best campaign moment, use the hashtag #followtheleaders and upload it to social media to be in the running for the Ultimate Post-Election Recovery Pack. The cover of the book needs to be clearly visible, as in this shot of ACT Chief Minister Andrew Barr (who faces his own election challenge this year):

This photo of Federal Opposition Leader Bill Shorten reading Follow the leaders at Parliament House is fantastic (because Mr Shorten is reading Follow the leaders!) but wouldn’t win the competition, because the front cover is not visible:

We encourage entry via selfie because if anyone is going to need a break in a luxury retreat after the longest election campaign in history, it’s our political leaders. Oh, and if anyone has an advantage going into this competition, it’s them, their staff and representatives of the media covering the campaign. We encourage all on the hustings to make the most of the head start they have.

You can use the ebook to enter. Just hold your ereader, tablet or smartphone up with the cover image visible in shot.

The prize includes a stash of Beroccas, fine wine and gourmet treats from Delightful Baskets, a voucher for a one-hour massage with Canberra-based måă organics, and a three-day weekend for two at Indigo Retreat West Lodge, Murrah Beach NSW in July, August or September this year.

Readers should photograph a copy of the book with Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull or Leader of the Opposition Bill Shorten in shot, or in any significant election-related scenario, between now and July 3. Post the image on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram using the #followtheleaders hashtag to be in the running.

You may see photos of the book in the thick of it taken by Follow the leaders author Francis Keany, Editia staff and members of their families during the campaign, but fear not, none of us is eligible to win. We just want to join in – and encourage – the fun.

So where can you buy your copy? The ebook is available via, Amazon’s Kindle store, iBooks, Google Play and Kobo.

The print edition is also on sale online here at, or Booktopia, and in selected bookstores nationally (if your bookstore doesn’t have stock, please ask them to order one in for you from our distributor, NewSouth Books in Sydney).

Editia acknowledges the generous support of our competition partners måă organics, Delightful Baskets and Indigo Couples Retreat.
