Here are the winners of our annual Mug Shots Contest!
Our Mug Shots Contest has become something of a tradition at RetroFestive, and our fans didn’t disappoint in 2014. We were thrilled to receive dozens of creative entries from across Canada.
What is a Mug Shot? For the uninitiated, it is a photo of you or a loved one (or group) posing with a moose mug or any other product purchased from RetroFestive.ca! We want Canadians to capture their love of the holiday season in fun and unexpected ways.
Such as these Griswolds toasting their burnt tree:
Or these kids re-enacting their favourite scenes from A Christmas Story:
It’s clear to us that Canadians (and their pets) love the leg lamp!
It’s heartwarming to know a new generation is growing up with the Charlie Brown tree … and Mr Hankey the Christmas Poo!
But we’ve learned that more than anything, Canucks love them some Griswolds … and Griswold moose mugs! Such as these proud folks:
And the Winners Are!
Here is the entry we judged “most creative” in 2014: For the second year in a row, the John Family of Alberta have “walked away” (pardon the pun) with a full-size leg lamp for their thoughtful and creative entry!
$500 Online Shopping Spree Goes To:
Our Grand Prize winner was determined by Random Draw of all eligible entries. A big congratulations goes out to Scott Ainsworth and his elves from Aurora, Ontario. Way to go!
All of the photos included in today’s blog post will receive a special Judges Choice prize… including the two photos below (which we loved, but were technically ineligible for the contest since they don’t include a human or pet subject.)
Thanks again RetroFestive fans! Get those creative juices flowing to dream up some awesome new ideas for next years contest!
