timtam - 11-11-2008 @ 01:52 AM

How hard is it to think of a caption for the photos? I find them really uninspiring :(:(:(

petrie46 - 11-11-2008 @ 02:08 AM

Even though this is daily there is a weekly winner only;

The entries received during each Entry Period will be judged at the Promoter's office on a weekly basis. By 5pm on each Tuesday from 11 November 2008 until 6 January 2009 (inclusive), the entries received during each Entry Period of the prior week will be judged. For the purposes of this condition a "week" runs from Saturday to Friday (inclusive). Accordingly, there will be 9 weekly judgings, each completed by 5pm on the relevant Tuesday. Each weekly judging will judge all entries received during the seven Entry Periods comprising the preceding week. In each weekly judging, 7 winners will be selected, 1 for each Entry Period of that prior week. All reasonable efforts will be made to notify the winners by email and/or phone within 7 days of being chosen as a winner.and its not $500 win it $500 Dew Dollars

see the value of each prize .If you win you don't get $500 you get to choose a prize it might only be worth $100

In each judging, the entry judged to be the best will win one Prize, of a 500 "Dew Dollars" voucher. This voucher is valid for 30 days from date of issue and can only be redeemed by the winning entrant making a selection from the prizes displayed within the promotional section of the Mountain Dew Australia website. Each 500 Dew Dollars voucher entitles the winner to redeem prizes to a total value of 500 Dew Dollars, as indicated at the redemption page of the Mountain Dew Australia website. No monetary payment will be provided to a winner if selected prizes total less than 500 Dew Dollars in value. Each winner is entitled to only one redemption transaction using his/her voucher. On submission of a prize order, each winner forfeits any remaining balance of Dew Dollars that may remain on the winner's voucher.

The selection of prizes available, with no limit on quantity except to the total value of 500 Dew Dollars, to each of the sixty-three winners is as follows (all amounts are stated in Dew Dollar values):

lpratt - 13-11-2008 @ 05:13 AM

any winners yet?

larry19 - 13-11-2008 @ 05:24 AM

great prizes in this comp and would be nice to win but the photos are a bit stupid aren't they with these silly little characters in them.........maybe the marketing department is fresh out of ideas

Dink - 13-11-2008 @ 05:32 AM

This comp is a little different to the norm. Thanks for the post ilazarus. :)

peta0150 - 13-11-2008 @ 07:18 AM

what kinf of things do you think they are looking for?

timtam - 13-11-2008 @ 08:24 AM

I reckon everybody will put the same thing....they are the most boring pictures I've ever had to put a caption to!

dizzy - 13-11-2008 @ 08:38 AM

petrie, I think the T&Cs mean that you can redeem prizes until you've reached 500 Dew dollars (based on their pricing), so for instance you could redeem your voucher for several prizes.

And their wording of "Each winner is entitled to only one redemption transaction using his/her voucher", meaning you have to spend your voucher all in one go, and whatever you don't spend gets fofeited, in other words you can't buy one thing and come back later on to spend the rest.

Hope this makes sense :)

missdoglover - 13-11-2008 @ 12:46 PM

Thanks for posting - it's my challenge each day to try to come up with something even half funny....;)

lpratt - 14-11-2008 @ 12:46 AM

i just tryed to email the promoter at '' as listed in the T&C but it comes back as failed delivery??

Does anyone know of another email to contact the promoter.

pineapples1 - 14-11-2008 @ 01:34 AM

Today's is particulary dull!

I'd ring Cadbury Schweppes on 1800 244 054 - this number is off my Mountain Dew Bottle label and has the email for the comp on the label. :)

Congrats Ipratt:)

lpratt - 20-11-2008 @ 10:35 PM

chrisp43 - 27-11-2008 @ 03:37 AM

This is hard.The pictures are Soooo stupid. I asked my son for help,thinking he would come up with something brilliant and all he could do was laugh.

pineapples1 - 27-11-2008 @ 03:41 AM

I agree! Hard to come up with something funny!

Does anyone know who all the characters in the pictures are supposed to be? I feel like I am supposed to know who they are from some promotional thingy but haven't a clue?

Webbi - 27-11-2008 @ 04:00 AM

Not at all, I have just been calling them Dew Boy, Skeleton and Rhino...very lame but this comp is really weird lol

cleanup - 28-11-2008 @ 06:33 AM

I saw an add on tv last night for mountain dew, it makes the pictures in the comp make more sense after seeing the add although it is still silly !!! But it does have a rhino in it LOL.

Dink - 28-11-2008 @ 07:11 AM

Oh, is that what he is supposed to be?? :P

lpratt - 3-12-2008 @ 02:22 AM

What did you guys actually win?

komala72 - 13-1-2009 @ 11:35 AM

Congrats you guys...I just quickly checked my email incase. I had my hopes up on that one. No such luck. It was hard. I think I only came up with one answer that I thought was brilliant and along their marketing style. The rest where stupid.

Good to see some of you winning.
