A pair of Wasgij fans will appear in a 1,000-piece puzzle out next year. 

Ian Burt from Somerset and Anita Spada from the West Midlands won an online competition promoted in Wasgij packs, which will see them both hand-drawn by artist Graham Thompson. He has been illustrating the adult puzzle range for 15 years.

Competition entrants were invited to recommend a friend to receive a 54-piece mini Wasgij puzzle.

The 2013 Wasgij puzzle will be set in a fish and chip shop.

Ian Burt said: “I’m absolutely delighted to have won this unique competition prize. I’ve been puzzling for 10 years and am a huge fan of Wasgij, since my daughter introduced me to them several years ago."

Anita Spada added: “When I entered the competition I never expected to win so was absolutely flabbergasted when I found out. I’ve been puzzling for 50 years and have collected over 40 Wasgij puzzles. I will definitely be framing the finished puzzle.”

Jumbo Games marketing manager Katherine Pierce commented: “Wasgij has a very loyal following, so we wanted to reward our fans by offering them the chance to win a unique ‘money can’t buy’ experience."
