Update: This contest is now over

We were absolutely stunned with the enormous amount of entries we received this week, but the message was clear – The Dojo wants Sarsaparilla cigars! Eventually we had to pick a winner, and the entries were so good, we decided to add a second prize! Winning 1st place was Drew M. (photo on right) and our 2nd place winner was Charo31 (photo on left). Congratulations to our winners and thank you for all that entered – keep an eye out, The Great Cigar Giveaway will return shortly…

Cigar Contest

Take yourself back to the turn of the 20th century – a time of marvelous new inventions, spectacular entertainment, soda shops, carnival barkers, top hats, and mustaches. This was a time of creativity and change, and the inspiration behind Cigar Dojo’s newest cigar release – Sensei’s Sensational Sarsaparilla!

While we like to think of this cigar as an “evolution of flavor”, there was a particular note that struck us as odd during the blending process, no one could put their finger on it. Eventually we pegged it – Sarsaparilla! We were instantly taken back to the theme of the early American soda shop, Malt shop, or drugstore soda fountain. “What a fun flavor profile!” we thought, indeed it’s a unique one, with twists and turns at every corner. This cigar is like an adventure for your taste buds! (Okay, maybe I’m getting a bit out of hand…)

This week’s contest theme is: Antique looking cigar pics

Get your Instagram, Hipstagram, or any other photo effects app ready, because this week’s contest is all about the antique look. In the theme of the new Cigar Dojo Sarsaparilla cigar, we want to see some old-school cigar shots! Entries can be as simple as a cigar pic with a black and white effect, or get crazy with top hats, waxed mustaches, monocles and more…

Entering the contest is as simple as:

  1. Take a cigar-related photo
  2. Apply a retro or antique looking effect
  3. Post your photo to the Cigar Dojo app
  4. Include hashtag #retroDojo

Note: Contest entries should be new, i.e. created for this contest. Any mention of Cigar Dojo in your entry pictures is encouraged – e.g. Cigar Dojo cards, stickers, drawings, computer screens, etc…
