    To enter our competition we want you to send us YOUR attempts at saying the name!

    So, if you think you're a bit of a wiz at Welsh, or know someone who thinks they know how to say it, get recording and show us what you can do. Selected sound (and video) files will be placed on this page, as and when we get them, together with photos or anything else you choose to send us (email only). The winner will be chosen by one of our team and will receive .... a Llanfairpwll T-Shirt!

    Be as creative as you like, impressions of famous people are encouraged. We've included a few below, just to get you started.

    Marks will be given not only for Pronunciation Quality but more important - Entertainment Value !
