Costa’s creative Christmas competition

At the start of November while everyone else is eagerly awaiting the Christmas ads, I’m eagerly awaiting creative Christmas themed competitions to pop up on Facebook! This year’s Costa Coffee competition is a cracker – pick up one (or more) of their cute Christmas cups, and take photos of your cup with a pair of eyes.

There are seven weekly competitions, each one closing for entries on Wednesday at midnight until 23rd December 2014, and the prizes are FANTASTIC!

When taking your snaps, set your smartphone camera to square as this is how they will appear in the gallery.

I took my cups out and about in Brighton this week for the week one ‘eyes about town’ challenge – it was good fun!
