Search to find real-life Merida from Brave

The hunt is on for the real-life Princess Merida, who will win tickets to the premiere of Disney Pixar’s Brave, out this summer.

Sunday Mail has launched a nationwide search for the closest lookalike of the blue-eyed redhead with a ginger attitude to match. Grrr.

The winner will be whisked away with three friends or relatives to walk down the red carpet at the European premiere in Edinburgh on 30 June 2012, the final night of the Edinburgh International Film Festival.

Not only that, but the victor and guests will be able to enjoy an overnight stay in a luxury hotel afterwards.

Sunday Mail movie critic John Millar said: “Merida is one of their best ever characters and our winner will have the red hair but also a little of her feistiness thrown in for good measure.”

There’s just one catch: entries will only be taken from those under the age of 25. Sorry if you’re older!

Do you know someone with beautiful red curls and a bit of a short fuse?

To enter, send or email a photo of the Merida lookalike, with name, age, address and phone number by midnight on Sunday 3 June to:

Email: mailbox@sundaymail.co.uk

Address: Brave Contest, Sunday Mail, 1 Central Quay, Glasgow, G3 8DA

Good luck to all! Brave is released in June in the US and August in UK. Check out the trailer here.
