Do you aspire to be a roving reporter? Can you scribe like a pro journalist? Do you fancy seeing your words in print on the largest independent gadget news and reviews site in the UK? Then you should head over to Firebox and enter its writer of the year competition in association with Pocket-lint.

All you have to do is email the gadget and gizmo site a 250 word review of a Firebox product of your choice.
