9 fun Father’s Day Competitions for 2019
Father’s Day is on Sunday 16th June this year, and there are already some fun creative comps popping up. Here I’ve shared nine of my favourite Father’s Day competitions so far!
For many of the social media #FathersDay themed comps, you can expect the usual questions, so prepare your answers and photos! If Dad’s not around any more, you’ll have the option in many comps to nominate a husband, son, partner or friend who’s a Dad too. Some example comp questions are:
- What’s your favourite memory of your Dad?
- Why’s your Dad so special?
- Has your Dad got a celebrity lookalike?
- What’s your Dad’s cheesiest joke?
Make sure you have a few entertaining retro or memorable photos at hand – of course, experienced compers should already have a ‘Family photos’ folder or album saved on their phone or PC for occasions like Mother’s Day and Father’s Day!
1. Win £400 travel vouchers
The Midcounties Co-operative want to hear about Dad’s biggest cooking disaster or triumph – the winner gets £400 in travel vouchers. Tell them in 100 words or less and send by email to firstname.lastname@example.org before 15th June 2019. Full details: www.midcounties.coop/landing-pages/fathers-day/
2. Win £100 ASK Italian voucher
Upload a photo of you and your Dad to Instagram, along with his favourite cheesy joke – tag both @ASKItalian and #EatLikeAnItalian, and follow @ASKItalian too. According to the T&Cs the winner of a £100 gift card will be chosen at random, but the competition page says their favourite joke will win! Closes 12th June 2019.
