If you eat, sleep, and dream about Old Bay seasoning, this contest is for you.
If you’ve been in Maryland for at least a minute or so, you know all about Old Bay. The classic seafood seasoning can be found on popcorn, chips, chicken, vegetables, and of course, blue crabs.
And now, McCormick, the company responsible for creating Old Bay, is holding a contest to find its No. 1 fan. The “You Just Don’t Like It Contest” will be held via Instagram throughout the summer. Fans that upload a creative video or picture showing their love for Old Bay will be entered into a contest to become Old Bay’s No. 1 fan.
So what does the winner get? In addition to being named the No. 1 fan in the world, the winner will also get an Old Bay trophy and an Old Bay-branded electric scooter.
If you think you have what it takes to be the ultimate Old Bay fan, upload your video or photo on Instagram and tag it with #OldBayFanContest and @oldbay_seasoning. You have until August 20, 2019, to submit your entry.
After the entries are submitted, the team at McCormick will narrow the pool down to 2,625 entries. Those entries will be judged on originality and creativity, photographic depiction, quality of entry, best expression of enthusiasm, and marketability. Make sure you read the long list of rules for entry here.
