Ashton Contest

Submitted by Rob on August 3, 2009 – 12:30 am4 Comments

Ashton ContestTo kick off the month of August (and to celebrate our new website design) it’s time for to have one heck of a contest/giveaway. We wanted to big, as big we must go, so we contact our good friends at Ashton Cigars to see if they would be interested in helping a lucky soul get their hands on some free cigars.

And if you didn’t know – Ashton is full of great people who not only support our cigar community but they really, really like to have fun. So Ashton and I were brainstorming on what we could do and a few things came to mind (in no particular order):

We need to make sure actual cigar smokers win these sticks and not random people who come across the site (or like free stuff).

It has to be something fun that everyone can easily do.

Something that incorporates Ashton (since they are giving away the cigars).

We wanted to REALLY motivate our fellow cigar community.

Okay, there was a lot more stuff we discussed but there is no need to bore you with the details.

So here we go:
Take a picture of you smoking an Ashton and you could win a box of Ashton Cigars.

That’s right folks. No sampler, no 5 pack, nothing that you can burn through in a single day.

We are giving away 1 FULL BOX OF ASHTON CIGARS.

This is how you win:
Take a picture of yourself (or someone you know) smoking a cigar, any cigar, that Ashton makes.
Submit the picture to to be posted.
Ashton, us at, and our Readers (based on comments) will decide who wins.

How to submit your picture(s):
Send your picture or pictures to

We are not going to put limitations on what kind of picture you have to submit It can be a cell picture or a full blown photo shoot. You can 1 person, 2 people, or 1000 people (have fun organizing that). You can make it serious, artistic, funny, or sexy – whatever you think will capture our attention. You can submit as many pictures as you want. The cigar in the picture must be an Ashton product.

Bookmark this page as the pictures will be posted here.

That’s it. Have fun and good luck!
