It’s that time of year again! The #RedCups are back at Starbucks. Let the holidays begin! That also means it’s time for the 2nd Annual Ugly Christmas Cup contest. What kind of Coffee Queen would I be if I didn’t offer awesome coffee prizes? No book purchase or review required. Just some awesome and crafty fun <3
First, let me remind all of you how this began. Last year, there was a HUGE uproar over the “ugly red cups” that was so insane and went global. So, my idea was to make them resemble ugly (or not) Christmas scenes. Sort of like an ugly sweater contest. Here’s a link to some of last year’s entries and also to the prize. One lucky winner was #MuggedByMadison.
This year, we’re doing it again. Here are the details and the rules:
PLEASE PAY CLOSE ATTENTION TO EACH ONE:
1.) Get your red cup from Starbucks. Even if you only order a sandwich or a cake pop, you can ask them for a cup. They’ll give it to you. Tell them what it’s for if you’d like.
2.) Decorate your cup. Be flashy, be bold, be sweet, be dark. It’s up to YOU. Just have fun with it.
3.) VERY IMPORTANT: Private message me the photo of your cup or email it to me at madisonsevier9 at gmail dot com with “UGLY CUP CONTEST” as the subject.
4.) To get as many votes as possible. You’ll be asked to share and tweet the link using #UglyCupContest #MuggedByMadison @MadisonSevier. You’ll want everyone to see the cups, right?
Disclaimer/Note: If your children are helping you design and decorate the cups…Do NOT let them use the hot glue gun. I’m not responsible for that. Please use caution. This is for fun and I’d hate to see anyone get hurt. If at all possible, use tacky glue or school glue.
**This will be a blind vote. Each photo will be given a number. Voters will “like” or comment on my website @ www.madisonsevier.com with the one they like the best.
ALL photos must be sent privately. (If we aren’t Facebook friends, please friend request me so that I can receive your photo.)
Contest begins: November 12, 2016. Please refrain from posting a status saying which photo is yours. We don’t want a popularity contest. That’s why this will be a blind vote. (Thank you). We want this to be fair for everyone. ENTRIES must be received no later than November 30, 2016. Voting begins December 1, 2016. Contest ends: December 12, 2016 at midnight EST. WINNER will the photo with the most votes. Winner will be notified by email and/or Facebook. WINNER will receive either A.) A Starbucks Christmas mug or Tumblr OR B.) A Starbucks gift card of equal value. Open Internationally. In the event of an international winner, that winner will automatically receive the Starbucks GC. 2nd prize, a Starbucks GC of $10 and 3rd prize, a Starbucks GC of $5.
Paper cups (red cups) only.
This contest is only affiliated with Madison Sevier, Author. Starbucks, Facebook and/or no other third party is affiliated with or responsible for the prize. That is the sole responsibility of Madison Sevier, Author.
HAVE FUN! I can’t wait to see how these new cups inspire your designs.
And I’m so excited to see who gets #MuggedByMadison this year <3
Have Fun and Talk To You Soon!
