The sun is shining, the birds are chirping and the smell of fresh cut grass is in the air. Springtime is finally here! We’re feeling refreshed and renewed by the senses of the season. Kind of like how you feel returning from a relaxing vacation.
It’s that vacation-esqe feeling that inspired our spring contest. And we want to keep that feeling going strong all season long. That’s where you come in. Inspire us with your creativity!
Here’s the challenge:
Send us a photo, a drawing, a video or any original work of art inspired by the concept of “Victory on Vacation.” There’s no limit to what the theme “Victory on Vacation” might mean to you. The very best entry, as chosen based on public comments and our panel of judges, will win $50 and some Victory goodies. We’ll have three additional runners-up who will get some swag too. So get creative.
Some ideas that would work:
- Send us a snapshot of you and your family and friends enjoying Victory beer while on a trip.
- Stage your Victory beer participating in your favorite vacation-y activities. How about Prima playing beach volleyball?
- Strum a tune on your guitar about how a few bottles of Golden Monkey send your mind on a vacation that is out of this world.
Our graphic designer created this postcard inspired by Victory on Vacation. See where we’re going with this contest concept?
