Don't you just love family get togethers and picnics? I know I do! Every summer my family and I attend numerous picnics with family and friends to enjoy the warm weather and company. The boys always have a fun time playing with friends and family they rarely see and I (and my hubby) enjoy the food! And you can almost always count on one other thing... Solo Cups! Yeah, yeah... I know. That line's a little cheesy. But it's true! Thinking back over all the picnics we've gone to and parties that we've thrown, there are always Solo brand plastic cups.... you know the red or blue cups that you used to drink beer out of when you were in college?
Right now Solo is trying to spread the word about a new cup design, the Solo Squared™. How are they doing this? Why, a contest of course!! And not just any contest... a photo contest featuring Solo cups!
Here's the details from an e-mail they sent me:
And because winning great prizes is always fun, we have a great contest opportunity for you! To celebrate decades of great entertaining and the new Squared party cup, Solo Cup Company has launched an online photo contest with a grand prize of $5,000 for the best photo featuring a Solo Squared cup. You'll be able to enter your favorite photos at http://www.solocups4ever.com/start/ until August 14 and the winners will be announced on August 21, 2009. In addition to the grand prize, two $1,000 runner-up prizes will be awarded at the end of the contest. By entering, you'll also have the chance to win daily and weekly prizes of gift certificates and Solo products.
So basically, go through your old photos and upload them to win a daily or weekly prize (ie. free product and coupons!) and then take a cool picture of the new Solo Squared cup for a chance to win $5000! Have fun with your pictures!!!
