We do a lot of things here at PunchTheSphinx.com. Let me give you a lil’ info on where we came from, what were doing, and what we’ve got planned.
My name is James Delaney, I’m 19 and live in Kilkenny. I set up this site in late 2009 with the view to create an online platform for Kilkenny’s youth, where they could write about their own interests uncensored. I founded it also with an aim to provide alternative media and to organize interesting, fun and alternative events for the youth of Kilkenny. We had a few articles, mention in the paper and had our Capture The Flag Kilkenny 2009 event. This year we’re returning bigger and better. Here’s a run down of what we’ve planned for this year.
From small afternoon gatherings for tea and crumpets in the Castle Park to our bigger, more active events such as Capture the Flag, we here at PunchTheSphinx organize a wide range of events. Anyone is welcome to attend these events, and they’re all free! Any events for a specific age group will be marked. e.g. Nights out are 18+. Events are regular, with at least one a week . Check out our next one on our homepage!
We regularly output original social media in the form of comics, videos, interviews, reviews, previews, news and personal blogs. We have a number of authors who post regularly on the site under varying topics. If you’re interested in having you’re work published on PunchTheSphinx, contact us, and we’ll try sort something out. We also run awareness campaigns for what we believe in. Check the homepage for our latest content. We offer free promotion for local bands, events, gigs, exhibitions, artists, crafts people, designers and anyone else with an idea to showcase. Just email us and we’ll sort out some form of promotion for you.
We do regular giveaways through our Facebook page. A question is asked daily on Facebook, best reply each day wins a prize! We also create a number of things for sale now and then. Each month we have an illustrated t-shirt for sale. They’re only a €5 so pick one up when they’re available.
And finally, we are no longer affiliated with anything youth. We are simply a group who publish content and organize our own events under the PunchTheSphinx banner.
