Cigar Contest
Newcomer to the cigar world, Moya Ruiz Cigars’ first product, La Jugada Prieto is truly a sight to behold. It has the look and feel of something fine and rare, that the common man could only hope to get his hands on. Luckily for the common man, we’re giving these beauties away in this week’s contest!

This weeks contest theme is: Sport your team pride

La Jugada translates to “the play” (in reference to a game or sport), and we feel it appropriate to show our “game faces” for this week’s giveaway!

Show your team pride this week on the Cigar Dojo app – baseball, hockey, football, even soccer… As long as it’s cigar related, you’re golden.

Some examples may be:

  • Smoking in your team’s jersey
  • Sports themed cigar accessories
  • Your favorite sports team as a cigar band
  • Smoking while watching the game

Be creative, there are many ways to capture your team pride in a cigar themed image, and we want to see you do it in style! Use cool camera effects, interesting angles, good composition, anything to make your image stand out among the entries.

Photoshopped or not, we want original images! i.e., an image taken specifically for this contest and created from scratch (no old photos, no images from Google).
