Our friends at Panasonic, this years sponsors of the Mercury Music Prize, have supplied us with a Personal CD Player along with 5 Mercury Music Prize Compilation albums to give away to Designer Magazine readers.

This years award show takes place on September 9th with speculation rife as to exactly who will walk away with the £20,000 prize money. Recent winners have included Ms Dynamite, Badly Drawn Boy and PJ Harvey and as per usual it's a case of don't expect the usual suspect to win. The compilation albums features one track from each of the nominated artists which this year include new bands such as rock sensations The Darkness and post-Britpop band Athlete battling it out against seasoned veterans Radiohead and Coldplay. However the two most likely (ignore what the bookies say) to walk away with the prize money are Dizzee Rascal and Lemon Jelly.

In order to stand a chance of winning the 1st Prize of a Panasonic Personal CD Player with Mercury Music Prize compilation album or one of 4 albums as the runners up prize answer these 2 simple questions

1. Who won last years Mercury Music Prize?
2. Name one of the nominated artists in the 2003 Mercury Music Prize shortlist?

Send answers along with a mailing address to before the closing date of 12pm Tuesday September 9th (NB: All entrants will be automatically registered on the Designer Magazine Email List. Details will not be passed onto any third parties)
