This is the biggest prize I’ve ever given away on DCF. And it goes to ONE winner.
I have two gift certificates (GCs) sitting on my desk right now (above, cover photo). They feel heavy in hand and when I hold them up to the light, the stiff, thick-stock paper shines like the prize that it is.
These GCs were given to me by the Marriott Manila and now I’ve decided to give it to you. One GC is for an Overnight Stay in a Deluxe Room For 2 Persons Inclusive of A Buffet Breakfast at Marriott Café. The other GC is for a Buffet Lunch for 2 Persons at Marriott Café. Together they have a combined value of P16,000. I could’ve given these GCs to two DCF readers but I decide that I want to get gung-ho and give it to just one person.
So, how does one get lucky and get these prizes? It’s simply a matter of submitting a photo with a caption.
And who decides the winner? YOU do.
Let me explain.
1. On September 4, I will post a link to a Gallery where you can upload a photo of yourself (max 1MB) that answers this question:
WHY I LOVE DESSERT COMES FIRST
2. Then in the Message box, write the caption of your photo. Entries will be accepted until September 12. Be as creative or as straightforward as you want with the photo and/or caption, pose alone or with fellow fan-friends. It’s all up to you, have fun with it!
And here comes the fun part:
The contest winner will be determined by voting. So, on Sept. 12, I’ll unveil the Gallery of entries and from then until Sept. 18, everyone is welcome to view the photo entries and vote for their favorites. Vote for all, vote for one, vote for none. Get your family and friends to vote for your entry, and don’t forget to vote for yourself!
Voting ends at 6pm on Sept. 18. I’ll tabulate the votes and announce the winner at 12noon on Sept. 20.
Just to be clear, here’s the Contest timetable:
Aug 29: Contest is announced
Aug 31: Marriott hotel feature (hey everybody, this is what you can win!)
Sept 4 at 7am: Gallery Link is posted so that you can upload your entry
