Cigar Contest: Big Papi by David Ortiz


We are excited for this contest as it is one we are going to have a bit of fun with. It is time for Playoff Baseball and with that, we are going to give away a bunch of Big Papi cigars. We reviewed this cigar a while back here.

Here is where the contest gets fun. To enter, take a picture or video of you representing your favorite baseball team or teams (they don’t have to be in the playoffs to qualify) and post that on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter.

The way we will do it is that each day, you can post to all three if you like, but the catch is, the pictures or videos must be different on each social media platform and each day. For example, on day 1 you could post a picture or video to Facebook, a different picture or video to Instagram and a different picture or video to Twitter and you would have three entries for that one day. Slight variations will be disqualified. You can keep doing the same thing every day of the contest.

Once the contest is finished, we will pick a finalist from each Facebook, Instagram and Twitter and from those three finalists, we will randomly select the two winners.
