This is my entry to the Cadbury Pure Happiness Festival contest.

The contest is sponsored by Cadbury Philippines.

I would like to invite everyone out there to vote for my entry for this year's contest. My entry number is No. 8. (Swerte daw ang 8 sa Chinese numerology, hehe). It just so happens that I was the 8th contestant to submit an entry. This year only 19 entries registered.

Criteria for this contest is as follows:

40 % - use of Cadbury Wrappers
30 % - adherence to theme
20 % - creativity
10 % - audience vote

I greatly appreciate it if you could vote for my entry. Audience vote is 10 % of the contest criteria. If my entry wins and if you voted for my entry, you get a chance to win cash prizes too!

Where to vote?

Voting will be done in two venues on a Saturday and Sunday of the week from July 19, 2009 until August 2, 2009:

1) Robinson's Galleria last July 19

2) SM Manila on July 25 and 26
exhibit location: Upper Ground floor, event center near Kenny Roger's

3) SM Megamall on August 1 and 2
exhibit location: Bldg A, Upper Ground floor

In order to vote, you must go to the Cadbury booth inside the designated mall exhibit area and buy Cadbury products. For every 100 pesos worth of Cadbury products, you are entitled to one vote stub. (200 pesos worth entitles you to two vote stubs, etc...) Fill up the vote stub and drop it at the drop box of an entry you want to vote for.

If an entry wins (1st, 2nd or 3rd), the voters who voted for that entry will be raffled off. One lucky winner will receive a cash prize of 10,000 pesos!!!

My Entry dimensions:

Height: 97 cm
Length: 76 cm
Width: 76 cm

The maximum dimensions set by Cadbury Philippines for this year's contest is limited to 1 meter (100 cm) for each dimension. Exceeding it would mean disqualification.

Cadbury Wrappers Used:

Just like last year's, I used a wide range of Cadbury wrappers (like almost every Cadbury product available in the Philippines).

1) Cadbury Dairy Milk and its variants
- Golden Crisp (yellow)
- Roast Almond (orange)
- Hazel Nut (brown)
- Fruit and Nut (red)
- Black Forest (reddish pink)
- Mixed Nuts (yellow orange)

2) Time Out (blue)
- bite size
- chocettes w/ time out

3) Zip
- fruity crunch (green)

4) Milk Tray
- dairy milk
- strawberry yogurt flavor (pink)

5) Picnic (red and yellow)

6) Cadbury Ecclairs (yellow)

7) Dark Noir (dark chocolate) - bite size (red)

8) Cadbury Moments
- Hazel Nut (yellow)
- Almonds (blue)

9) Old Gold (yellow and black)

It has taken me a lot of time and effort to complete. This entry, like last year's, is a collective effort of me, my family, and my girlfriend. But unlike last year's where I have done majority of the work, this year they played a more active role.

Thanks to them, my entry would not have been possible.

Thanks to mama who did the miniature people, the sun backdrop, the Manny Pacquiao giant design, and more...

Thanks to papa who helped me construct the lighting circuitry, and the base structure, and more...

Thanks to Ariane who did a lot of detailing, for the background, the marching band, the details on the miniature family and jeep, and a whole lot more...

Without them, my entry would be nothing but wrappers!

Once more, I invite everyone to vote for my entry, entry Number 8 - The Pinoy theme, with the sun and family background. Thanks again and good luck in the draw should my entry win!

Additional Info: My entry to last year's Cadbury's Art of Happiness art contest won 1st place. In my opinion, my entry for this year has a good chance of winning, all the more if you could give your support through your votes. Many thanks in advance should you decide to support my entry.

This cadbury contest really gAVE me the happiness. I like doing art so I enjoyed making this "project" though I never tried to join a coontest like this. Thanks to you!

I really appreciate you sharing your experiece with me with regards to art and the Cadbury contest. Believe me, making these kinds of projects are not that easy, specially practical arts and craft.

As you can see in my blog site, I join a wide array of contests, from practical art, photography, blogging, writing, digital desgin, and currently, I am studying video editing as well.

Hopefully in the future, I could compete in song writing and animation, because I have dreamed of being successful in these fields when I was still very young...

In every contest I have joined, I try to give my best effort. Of course, most of the time it ends up in failure. But at least I get to learn something new specially from the competition and also from my mistakes.
