Paris riverboat party: “Raise your hands in the air…” Just not when on a boat going under a low bridge.



What’s this competition about?: Enter by posting up a picture using your social media channel tagging us (Instagram, Facebook or Twitter) featuring one of our beautiful – in a rugged kind of way – Beoplay A1 portable speakers with a fun story, moving memory, joke, or even a dream that you have experienced or imagined about a great experience while travelling, working, chilling out, or wherever you can take an A1 that might leave a trace of that experience on it. Use #ScratchStory to be extra sure we can find you.

Don’t worry if you aren’t lucky enough to own an A1 yet, this competition is judged on the quality of story alone, how imaginative it is, how funny, how emotionally moving, how poetic, how beautiful – so get creative! Feel free to share the attached pictures with your story, adapt them and otherwise make them your own however you like.
