You can enter the contest by answering the questions below and then writing in 30 words or less the reason for your response to the question “What ABBA song do you like best and why?”. You must give your reason in order to take part in the contest. Submit your answers by April 30 at the latest. Good luck!

The prizes

1st prize: a SEK 5,000 gift card from British Airways.

2nd prize: two tickets to ABBA The Museum, worth SEK 390.

3rd prize: a signed copy of the children’s book Det lilla, vita pianot/The Little White Piano by Björn Ulvaeus, worth SEK 169.
One day a new piece of furniture comes to the little cabin on an archipelago island – a little white piano. To the piano’s great happiness, the two friends Björn and Benny start to play wonderful, original melodies on her. They never seem to run out of inspiration – even if it means they have to carry the piano along a snowy forest trail in the middle of the night. The book is only available at ABBA The Museum.

4th prize: a signed copy of Ingmarie Halling’s book ABBA The Backstage Stories, worth SEK 325.
In the book, Ingmarie Halling, a costume changer on ABBA’s international tours and today curator at ABBA The Museum, recalls the exciting years on tour and what happened backstage. The journalist Carl Magnus Palm gives a history of ABBA, from “Ring Ring” in 1973 until today. And many of those involved during this period – in particular Frida, Benny, Björn and Agnetha – share their memories.

5th prize: the book The Music, the Memories, the Magic about ABBA The Museum, worth SEK 98.
A book describing ABBA from before the group formed until today.
