THIS CONTEST IS OVER. The winners were: TSD906, DRK204, G3173, FargoFranks, and Jess. Congrats to the winners and thank you for all the great entries!
This week’s giveaway features Miami Cigar Company‘s La Sirena. Spanish for Mermaid, La Serina is centered around the sea, with vitolas like Trident, Sea Sprite, King Poseidon, and 5×50 robusto The Prince. Even the box itself looks as if it were a sunken treasure chest!
This weeks contest theme is: Show us your smokin’ buddy
I’m sure we all wish we could have a mermaid as our smoking buddy, but sadly, that’s probably not the case (how would she even smoke in the water?). Nevertheless, we make do – whether it’s your pet, a friend, wife, whoever, whatever, we want to see your smoking buddy. As you may already know, at Cigar Dojo, you never smoke alone!
Now hold up! Before you go off and flood the Dojo with cat pictures, take a step back. We’re looking for cigar-themed photos featuring your smokin’ buddy, whether or not you include yourself in the photo is up to you. Show us who (or what) you smoke with and make sure you don’t cross those Dojo Rules.
This week’s prizes will be selected by the Cigar Dojo staff as a random drawing from total accumulated entries. But that doesn’t mean we want to see your blurry 2nds! We’re looking for cool camera angles, interesting filters, good composition, anything you can do to make those images POP! Find your inner-artist and show the Dojo what you’ve got.
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).
So let’s get started shall we?
And the PRIZES are….
Box of 20 La Sirena Robusto Cigars
Coming out of the famed My Father factory, this full box of hidden treasure will go to the lucky winner of this week’s contest! La Sirena cigars are dark, Nicaraguan, full-bodied cigars, with complex flavors that would please King Neptune himself. Winner will receive a sealed, full box of La Sirena The Prince cigars.
5-Pack of La Sirena robusto cigars
Second place aint nothing to scoff about, two runner-up winners this week will also be receiving a sampling of these toothy, full-bodied cigars.
