Immortalized Candy Contests
Maynards Canada is running the contest through their Facebook page. To enter, fans need to simply like the page and upload a pic of themselves that they can then edit and submit to the contest. The winner will be drawn at random and will receive a whopping $5,000 prize in addition to a year's supply of candy. What an excellent campaign by Maynards Canada.
