Last days for bestie photos competition

IT'S less than two weeks to the close of our Big Day Out competition!

For your chance to win tickets all you have to do is upload a photo of you and your best friend to northernstar.com.au/win and tell us in 25 words or less why you couldn't live without them.

Sophie McMahon (above) and her best friend Karly have grown up together and went to the same pre-school. They became best friends at the age of three, went to the same schools and have been besties ever since.

"The photo I uploaded is us at our year 10 formal last year," Sophie said.

"Last year, Karly and I lost a good friend to suicide. We became extremely depressed and started skipping school and made friends with the wrong crowd.

"We realised after a few months that this attitude wasn't getting us anywhere so we started to pick ourselves up and start again."

Sophie and Karly are extremely happy again and "doing really well in school".

"We would love more than anything to win tickets to 2013 Big Day Out as our favourite band the Red Hot Chilli Peppers are playing," she said.

"Thanks so much for giving us the opportunity to win!!!! Over and out."
