All Day - Instagram Ugly Mug Contest
Everyone has a mug… the one you were given as a gift, the one that fits your hands just right, the one that was a freebie from an event, the one that bares a favorite quote, the one that has a unique shape; but some people are blessed with the best “ugly mug.” The mug that stays in the back corner of the cabinet, the mug that was gifted to embarrass you or maybe it’s even a “mug” your family and friends have nicknamed when you’re photographed a certain way… Whatever it may be, visit the Ugly Mug Showcase and photograph your “ugly mug” to enter the Instagram Ugly Mug Contest. Here are the steps to enter:

1. Take a photo of your “ugly mug” at the Ugly Mug Showcase at the Coffee & Tea Festival NYC Iced

2. Post the photo of your “ugly mug” to Instagram

3. Make sure to include the following in your post: @coffeeteafestival #uglymugentry #NYCIced

4. If steps 1-3 are completed, you’re officially entered!

Instagram posts must be made on June 11, 2017 to officially enter and contain all three identifiers in step three. Posts that are made before or after June 11, 2017 will be disqualified. Posts that do not contain all three identifiers will be disqualified. Contest winner will get tickets to the Coffee & Tea Festival Valley Forge on November 4-5, 2017 with a hotel stay on one night of their choice.
