Prisma’s 2nd Annual Holiday Contest

Happy New Year from all of us here at Prisma!

After a wonderfully successful 2013 Prisma snowflake contest (read about it here), we knew that we had to come up with another fun and engaging holiday gift for our clients in 2014.

This year, we sent boxes to clients all over the country with treats for the holidays and three small white Styrofoam balls. The instructions were simple- use anything and everything you have in your office space to create a one-of-a-kind office snowman reflecting your style, brand, workplace, or other funky, spirited character. We also included a wintery madlib- a separate contest, but most often written in reference to their office snowman. Clients just had to send pictures of the scene and madlib back to us to be eligible for a wintery prize!

This year, we decided to invite the office to vote on the two 1st place prize winners and some honorable mentions, too (who receive a coveted Prisma blog shoutout). The snowmen we received were even cooler than we expected and, with over 50 submissions, our office staff had quite the challenge selecting their favorite! After adding the votes, we are excited to announce that the winner of the office snowman contest is:

Eileen Wong and the team at Forever Living

_D9A9534 Eileen Wong - Sunbathing Snowlady

Forever Living’s sunbathing snowwoman scene won by an avalanche! No other snowman could top this desert gal in a teeny yellow bikini who was actually floating on a bubble envelope.

We’re also happy to announce the winner of the madlib contest- Distribution Services at Davis Selected Advisers in Tucson. We loved hearing about Peanut and his sporty winter adventures. Read their quirky jingle here.

Alana O'Brien - DSACO

This modern, minimalist snowman deserves some recognition for his timeless black and white ensemble against a wintery backdrop. He was created by Ashley Loberg at FORS Architecture.

Thanks and congratulations to Rica Dodds for representing all sassy snow-women through Sally, and to Meredith Rowley at Hospice of the Valley for Phil N. Thropic- a generous snowman who lives for the giving spirit of the holidays. He took second place in our office vote!
