Ok, I know this is a beauty blog, but this contest is so much fun, I had to share it!. Plus, it involves some of my favourite candy, so I just couldn't resist.
Maynards is giving Canadians a chance to 'Make Your Face a Maynards' and transform their sweet looks into a delicious candy for the chance to become the face of Maynards next candy - literally!
From now until September 30, 2011, candy-face wannabes can upload a photo of their best Maynards face to the Maynards Canada Facebook page and morph their good looks into a virtual candy caricature. One sweet stand-out submission will be selected to become an actual candy based on one of Maynard's most popular treats: Sour Patch Kids, Fuzzy Peach, Sour Cherry Blasters, or Swedish Berries (OMG, I LOVE Swedish Berries!).
Sweet-toothed officials will choose the top 10 faces, which will be showcased on the Maynard's Facebook page beginning October 17. A random draw from the top 10 entries on October 24 will determine the grand prize winner. The winner of 'Make Your Face a Maynards' will receive a year's supply of Maynards candy featuring his or her actual face and a cash prize of $5,000, plus a trip for two to Toronto for a photo shoot and a factory tour to see how Maynards candy is made.
Ready to become a star (well, a candy star, anyway)? You can read the full rules, regulations and candy-face-making tips on the Maynard's Facebook page. Have fun!
