Think you’ve outgrown fairy-tales? Well think again! The Contest brings the fairy-tale Kingdom of Cyberia right up to date, with on-line match making, speed dating, cyber spells and, of course, love rivals.
Meet the hard up King and Queen of Cyberia and their feisty, rebellious daughter, HRH Princess Eemay, who considers royal tradition stuffy and old fashioned.
She is outraged to find out that on her eighteenth birthday, in accordance with Royal Law, she must begin a search to find her perfect prince to marry.
Feeling too young to settle down and fed up of constant and heated arguments with her parents, she cunningly decides to co-operate with their match making attempts, but fully intends to reject every prince introduced to her.
Join Eemay at a hilarious speed dating event at the palace
Find out what happens when the King organises The Contest, to find her perfect prince.
Join Eemay at her eighteenth birthday ball, funded by a sponsorship deal with a glossy magazine, and where The Contest begins.
Follow the unexpected turn of events that change the course of her life.
Prepare to be shocked, amused and enthralled in equal measure.
