Ugly shirts = pretty money? This holiday season we are hosting the first annual “Ugly Christmas Sweater” Contest and we want everyone to enter. We all know you have that one sweater in the back of your closet that just hurts to look at, it only gets worn once a year to make your mom happy, but you really wish you could throw it in the fireplace. That’s the sweater we’re talking about! Take a picture of yourself wearing that beauty, register and submit your photo online at http://uglysweater.contestcore.com/ and you could be one of 3 winners! First prize is a $300 Visa gift card, second prize is a $150 Visa gift card, and third prize is a $50 Visa gift card. Keep in mind those prizes could really come in handy toward paying off your post-holiday debt. We are accepting entries November 29th through December 9, 2011. After December 9th the voting process begins. Tell all your friends, family, co-workers, neighbors, reindeers and grinches - really anyone with internet access, to vote for your ugly sweater so you can be a winner! Bonus if you get Santa and the elves to vote for you, there’s no way you can lose with their votes. Voting may occur once a day per person. The top three people with the most votes and worst sweaters win! Don’t forget to share your ugly Christmas sweater on Facebook, Twitter, through email, on your blogs, messenger pigeons, and any other way you know how. The winner will be announced on December 22, 2011. Just in time for Christmas! Could there be a better gift, than getting money for that hideous thing? I mean totally awesome Christmas sweater! You won’t be shy to wear that prized possession anymore. To host your own contest on ContestCore or to demo the platform, head to contestcore.com.
