The Contest

Sharpen your wit – this Trader Joe’s Thanksgiving Flyer cartoon is begging for a caption. If you are up to the challenge, then we encourage you to write and submit a quippy caption for the above cartoon [see How To Enter]. Should we humor your humor, then we will reward it. The WINNER will have their wit featured in our online version of the Fearless Flyer! The first- and second- runners up will also have some time to shine in our Dig In section online (you’re looking at it!). And all three caption creators will receive a “get-some-Thanksgiving-fixings-on-us” Trader Joe’s Gift Card [Winner: $100, First Runner-up: $50, Second Runner-up: $25].

 

Caption Specifications

1. The caption should pertain to Trader Joe's and/or its products (and, of course, the cartoon above).

2. Offensive, off-color, hurtful, damaging, derogatory, provocative, insulting, abusive, harassing, ugly… captions will be rejected outright.

2. Only one caption per person will be accepted.

3. The contest begins on November 10, 2014 and ends on November 16, 2014. All entries must be received by 11:59pm PST on November 16, 2014.

Judging

Three Thanksgiving Flyer Cartoon Caption Winners will be selected by The Official TJ's Cartoon Caption Committee, inclusive of the caption writers for the Trader Joe’s Fearless Flyer.

All captions will be evaluated on the following elements: clever use of language; laugh-ability (on a scale of tee-hee to HA!); and relevance relative to the cartoon and context.

A total of three Winners will be selected and revealed on the website on November 19, 2014.
